Eating my way through the restaurant’s entire menu, currently at 222 items.
Tasted 7 new items tonight, bringing the total to 54 items tasted thus far, 168 items remaining, averaging 4.5 items per visit, on pace to finish at TEITY 50.
The Beef Tenderloin with Special Sauce was the highlight. Lightly coated, deep-fried, served with a sweetish soy glaze. Ridiculously tender, even for tenderloin (I should learn how Chinese restaurants do this, probably with some kind of chemical tenderizer). Good flavor, if somewhat predictable. A contender for the Korean WPRO staff menu.
Though I forgot to take a photo, we also ordered the Sichuan Hot & Sour Soup (1.0), which was bland, seafood bits a bit fishy.
