What great meals you had-now I know what to order! I wouldn't have thought of celery as a vegetable for many items- hardly see it. Your fish cleaning skills are excellent.


I wonder if this is the same hotel Kirk took us to for a food break after eating dumplings and beef rolls. One of our friends ate one too many beef rolls and had really bad food coma. That was our first of five stops? Dumplings look so good.

Well Cathy, we did enjoy the meals. the invisible people on the internet clued me about the cucumber and the beef rolls. I hoped the dumplings would be good but they were the best I've ever had. As for the Hunan restaurant, Kirk blogged about the fish and the intestines. The great thing about Tina's Ipad is being able to research places quickly.

You'll have find out from Kirk, TFD, but I don't know if he has been to that dumpling place. My memory is that there were a couple of other xlb places in that area that Kirk told me about years ago.


Hey Ed - You guys really polished off that fish! Thanks for the shout-out. Haven't been to that place yet. And yes TFD, that's the Hilton where we took our break.


I might have to try this place when I'm in SoCal


There is an awesome vegetarian restaurant in the bottom left corner as you turn in. The last I was there it was packed.

I thought you hadn't been to that xlb place, Kirk. As for the shout out, I am regularly amazed at how spot on your descriptions of food items are - the fish and intestines this time, but also some of the dim sum at Sea Harbour.

Thanks for the tip, billy, there was also a Taiwanese place and one spot was being renovated also.
