As an old school Seattle Native...(47 years and counting), we ventured into the International District last night for Chinese..........Many years ago, going to Tai Tung after skiing was a great tradition, and while I've been skiing a lot, I haven't been to out to Chinese in a long time. It was like nothing had changed-
Started with cocktails - my wife wanted an old fashoned - but they were out of bitters, so a gin martini stood in....I went for the exotic Singapore sling...a bit sweet, and it was tea for me the rest of the night.
BBQ Pork... very good, real pork, with actually some fat ! Very moist, Not like the usual dried out god knows how it got so pink on the outside stuff..........
Soup- Cabbage ? Celery ? - All I know is that it was hot, and had a wonderful deep flavor, and unexpected treat
Happy Family- Yes we were.... Brocolli and snow peas done to perfection, fine prawns, mushrooms and scallops and scallops, and well, the squid was there, not good, not bad, just there.
Chinese Style Crab (Black bean)...Too much fun, getting all messy ! Was quite nice, sauce could have been a bit hotter, and the crab a bit sweeter, but It was a great experience, and there was nothing bad or off about it...
My Son had combo plate #1 - which was perfect for his tastes - fine chicken noodle dish, an egg foo young which he wasn't so keen on, but looked fine to me, and then the perfect amount of pineapple spare ribs...
Total cost - $ 85 including 15% tip
So it wasn't wild ginger, or a hole in the wall pho place, but it sure hit the spot !!!!!!!!
All in all a great night
