i wrote a long report yesterday on eph, which disappeared when i tried to post it (i got a message saying they were working on our message board, after i wrote, not before). but i see they havent restored the earlier thread about ed's, as they told cathy2 they would do........anyway, the meal last week with a bunch of chowhounds was so good, i took 8 friends for dinner saturday night because i was still craving some of the dishes we'd had. we had another memorable meal and everyone left full and happy. we ate: mandarin pancakes with smoked pork belly(the only greasy dish i've had here,but it is supposed to be that way, and worth every fat calorie); shangai pan fried noodles(not oily like szechuan style), smoky fragrance, probably the best chinese noodles i've ever had; vegetable dumplings; pork potstickers; 'lamb fried rice with curried flavor'(not very adventurous perhaps, but the lamb was tender and delicious); an emerald green mountain of steamed spinach with garlic(terrific and beautiful presented); green beans lightly coated with salt and oil(not greasy, the first bite is a salty one, then the salt recedes and you get perfectly cooked stir fried green bean); those amazing rice flour sesame coated balls filled with sweet red bean paste(something i've never liked anywhere but here).i was very impressed with the vegetables, and look forward to trying others next visit. the service was excellent; brenda, the owner, whose english is good was helpful in ordering; we left with several doggie bags and the bill was $14/person plus tip. i love this place. joan
