Today 9 of us gathered at Yummy World for lunch. I'll list the dishes and encourage the rest of the group to add their thoughts and/or photos!

The item numbers for the dishes are not in all cases the same as on the big menu, but I have them listed from the take out menu.

Here goes:
#D-1 Salt & Pepper beef with fried garlic
#E-2 Lamb with ginger and scallions
#K-1 Braised preserved vegetable with sliced pork in clay pot
#K-10 Chicken with Chinese sausage in clay pot
#N-4 Preserved eggs over spinach (with Century eggs & salted eggs)
#N-5 Seasonal vegetables (ong choy with caramelized garlic cloves)
#N-9 Steamed egg white with tofu and seafood
#34 Fried rice with taro and Chinese sausage
#71 Braised E-Fu noodle with lobster (half lb) - we got a double order

We were each served a bowl of the soup of the day and the restaurant comped us an order of what I think was #56 Seafood pan fried noodle.

The tab for a generous amount of food came to $125 including a nice tip = $14/pp

I'd still like to go back and try some other items like maybe #H-3 Spicy salt and pepper frog, or #H-5 Braised eggplants and frog in chili sauce, #F-6 Steamed pork hash with dried scallop, or #L-5 Sizzling frog and clam with scallion, or #39 "Big Boss" fried rice with dry scallop and seafood...

Plus there's a section of the menu "Soup Rice" that includes "Chow" Chou style soup rice with minced pork, clam with minced pork soup rice, etc. Am not familiar with "soup rice" so will have to order it one of these days.

Even though we were all pretty full, most of us decided we needed something sweet so it was necessary to go to Romolo's for cannoli, espresso or affogato... No dinner for me tonight!
