Earlier tonight twelve 'hounds descended upon the Taiwanese favorite Joy Restaurant in Foster City. With help from previous posts and suggestions from other 'hounds, and copious cross-references to Robert Yu's secret menu posting (which now seems to be down), honu and I (the organizers) ordered:

- Zhong Hua Road Potstickers
- Gold Thread Roll (fried)
- Tangerine Peel Crispy Freshwater Eel

- Salty sincere delicacy [yan du xian]

- Red striped whole duck
- Clay pot lion's head
- Nitrate pork (steamed pork hock) [da shao ti]
- Chicken with basil (3-cup chicken)
- Wu xi spare ribs
- Green beans with minced meat
- XO sauce hand-cut noodles with seafood chow mein
- Crispy bean sea bass
- On choy

- Shaved ice with red beans, ai-yu jelly, and grass jelly

I took a few photos and posted them at:

I'll wait for others to post before giving my review. Total including tax and tip was $17/person.
