The New Spread – Pilot
at Golden Fortune
with various K staff and guests
Always a highlight of the meal, the Minced Pork & Eggplant in Hotpot (4.0) here is excellent. Though I’m generally not a fan of eggplant, which can get mushy if not prepared properly, the strips here are cooked to firm perfection. And though I’m generally not a fan of minced pork, which usually just gets in the way without contributing much, the bits here provide a nice textural contrast to the eggplant and add substance to the dish. The thick brown sauce is amazing with rice. One of this restaurant’s best dishes.
Following the boss’s recent decision to cease hosting dinners at Seafood Market (see most recently 6.198 Jumbo Prawns with Broccoli…), the new venue has been tentatively selected as Golden Fortune (see most recently 6.030 Sauteed Croco Meat).
Designed by the boss himself, the new spread features many dishes that we are already familiar with, plus a few more.
Tonight’s pilot implementation received overwhelmingly positive feedback on the food itself, though perhaps we’d ordered too much. We will continue to improve and expand upon the selection, and adjust the amounts accordingly.
Beyond taste, quality, and variety, which I find to be superior overall to that of Seafood Market (see generally 4.263 Parros Clams…), I am most looking forward to the consistency that the menu here has to offer.
