Eating my way through the restaurant’s entire menu, currently at 222 items.
Tasted 4 new items tonight, bringing the total to 15 items tasted thus far, 207 items remaining, averaging 5 items per visit, on pace to finish at TEITY 45.
Tonight, the highlight was the seafood hofan. It came in a goopy/light chicken stock sauce, enhanced with ribbons of egg whites, delicate yet rich and fulfilling, perhaps even better than the other. Same delectably flame-licked charred flavor in the rice noodles. Also included gailan, my favorite veg, along with shrimp, scallop, squid. Perhaps one of the greatest noodle dishes that I’ve ever experienced anywhere.
