Hello! I just want to do a quick check in and tell you about my delicious date night dinner
I was craving either Thai food or Chinese last night and since we had Thai a few weeks ago I decided we should change it up this week. I started to “Yelp” places, but told Ben just to drive in toward Irvine. Irvine is the city right next to us with a huge Asian population and an even bigger population of amazing authentic restaurants.
We started with the scallion pancakes. They are thin savory pancakes fried up with scallions, flour and egg.
And for some reason I ordered some steamed rolls. It is fluffy rice dough steamed and served like bread. But, it’s completely tasteless. I know I’ve tried this before and liked it, but that time they were stuffed with flavored meat. The texture of these is so interesting – I can’t decide if I love it or hate it.
Ben ordered some combination hot pot…
Then, we went a few doors down to get dessert from a small bakery (even though there is the original Yogurtland across the street!).
I ended up sipping some port wine and enjoying a little dark chocolate (from my shoe egg) for dessert. Now I’m off to run and eat…
