Slipper Lobsters in White Pepper Sauce
at Tao Yuan
The parental units are visiting for a couple days.
While Dad hangs out on the other side of town with his brother, Uncle CS — carousing, probably — I’m looking after Mom.
For dinner, Tao Yuan. She wanted to try the lobster that she’s heard so much from DJ (see most recently 6.044 Slipper Lobsters in White Pepper Sauce).
Whether I’m getting tired of the dish (say it ain’t so!) or the preparation fell a bit short this time (as the photo may suggest) or my mother’s less-than-ebullient response clouded my judgment (she’s pathologically difficult to please), I was a bit underwhelmed.
