Happy Garden Palace

My girlfriend and I had dinner at this Fuzhounese restaurant last night. It was quite busy with Chinese customers, and we were the only non-Chinese customers for the entire time we were there. We had Duck w. Fuzhou Style over rice, a recommendation by our waitress, and what was listed in the menu as Bok Choy in Fuzhou Vinegar but was actually napa cabbage. The duck consisted of various small duck parts, including feet, so it was a bit hard to eat but cooked in a delicious red sauce. I was expecting rice wine lees, but it tasted like red beans, hot pepper, cinnamon, ginger, and a bit of sugar. The vegetable, in long strips (be careful when you're eating the softer, lettuce-like ends of the vegetable, lest they lodge in your throat) came in a really tasty sweet-and-sour sauce of black vinegar and sugar, with a few little rectangles of ginger.

This very good meal came to $14 plus tip for both of us (not apiece). I will surely be coming back to try a bunch of other items.
