My 3 regular DCs and I are still mourning the loss of Thailand Cafe, and I'm trying to make the case that Mulan could be our local replacement. We went there last week and had a fine meal consisting of the following:
Rice Cakes (w/o pork)
Pea Pod Stems
Sauteed Bean Curd Sheet w/ Black Mushroom (#128)
Shrimp w/ Chive and Bean Curd Sheet (#63)
While we enjoyed each dish individually, we found the flavors to be too similar to one another. In particular, it was clear that we needed at least one spicy dish on the table.
So, here's my request for help: provide us with a better menu for four! The pea pod stems (or some similar green) are pretty much non-negotiable, and the rice cakes and dumplings are both favorites, but the other slots are up for grabs. (We could also jettison cakes/dumplings, if compelled.) Any thoughts would be appreciated!
