Went there yesterday because I couldn't get to Grace Garden last night! For the first time I ordered take-out from the Country Side Taste menu. I don't think I've ever had "authentic" Chinese, which is why Grace Garden sounded so good...
I ordered the Snow Pea tips with garlic and the Aromatic Shrimp. Both were excellent, and unlike any Chinese I've ever had. When the waiter presented me with my take-out bag he said "Who is eating this?" I told him I was and he said..."Very expensive". (which it was...about 25 bucks.) He then said "Only Hong Kong people eat this"...he seemed very impressed that I was buying it...I told him I would only do it once in a while ;-)
Anyway, the food was delicious, and well worth the price as it will give me at least three meals. Question though...I have never had snow pea tips before...do they look and taste like cooked fresh spinach? It was delicious...but I could bet money it was spinach!!!
