Chowhound event #35 Lunch at Woey Luey Guey
Twenty-five Chowhounds after a long hot walk doing Chowhound do best looking at sampling and buying food. Met at Woey Luey Guey and enjoy a large Chinese lunch.
We need to thank Bob Chaohound for think this whole thing up and Joel and Bonni for proof reading and correct my handouts. I had the easy job just do what my wife says I do best, shot off my big mouth.
We order lunch the old school Chinatown style. We went to a place where I had a history and inform the owner that we had 25 people and we wanted to pay $10.00 per person tax and tip included. (T&T) This how I learn to order by my father.
We started with Shredded Duck Yee Foo Won Ton Soup. The broth was clear, but still rich in favor. This was in honor of Melanie who was busy on the day of walk.
Double Mushroom with Lettuce, shitake and straw mushrooms over a bed of cooked but still crispy lettuce in a light oyster sauce. The comment at our table was the lettuce was outstanding not cooked to death.
Beef with Gai Lai (Chinese broccoli) this was beef with a light oyster sauce with the gai lai cooked but again crispy.
Vegetable fried rice; the owner said it we want she would give more. The was no need for the offer.
Chicken Chow Mien Basic chicken nothing great by help us fill up
Cantonese Deep fried whole Chicken: this was a high light. It was cooked just right not undercooked or overcooked. It was served with shrimp chips and salt/pepper.
Deep-fried flounder: well done when the flesh separate from the bones with a little pressure. This show that it was not overcooked. After the first past I told the table the best part is the crispy bones on the side of the fish.
Peking spareribs: this is not sweet and sour pork. Baby pork chops were fried with a batter and then cooked with Peking sauce. By this time everyone said they were full.
When Salt and Pepper shrimp availed. RWCfoodie said we full we dont need it until she saw what it was. Then she said O good we can always eat one more.
