Day Three Food (2005-11-25)
The lunch in that congee restaurant was very nice. We just
loved the Fukien fried rice and stir-fried flat noodles. The
other side dishes were good too but the portions were like most other
restaurants, very big. We couldn't finish everything we ordered,
what a shame.
The Italian dinner was memorable. We had mussels as a starter
and they were even better than the ones we had at Sam's Cafe in Tiberon
with Rick and Shirley. The sauce was thick, garlicky and
tomatoey. Then we all ordered seafood for our entrees.
Marco had stuffed shrimps, KL had sea bass in lemon and white wine sauce
and I had scallops. The portions were once again very big, much
bigger than I had expected. I had TEN scallops on my plate!
Who uses that many scallops in a single serving?! Marco's four
large stuffed shrimps filled his plate which could have sufficiently
fed two people.
Next time we'll split one appertizer and two entrees. Next time? When will that be?
