After doing my research :) I've decided to make a reservation this Friday for Ponzu. Anything particular I have to order? I gave a read to Michael Bauer's review in the Chronicle, but wanted Chowhound's opinion for sure.
Chicken and dumplings are a notoriously time-consuming enterprise, but the end result is very much worth the effort. However, if you're a time-crunched cook who craves the comforting pleasures of this classic dish, this is the recipe for you.
Lightly charring the lemon slices intensifies their flavor and creates a gorgeous look for this delicious chicken dinner. Be sure to include any of the sweet, tangy liquid the lemons give off in the bowl; it adds incredible depth to the sauce.
