Beginning to sense diminishing returns from this restaurant (see most recently 7.091 Wok-Fried Fresh Gingkos…), now about halfway thru the menu, this was the first meal that was disappointing across the board.

Sautéed Shrimp Salad, Fresh Mango, Cucumber (1.0) — god, how I hate this kind of thing, so-called “cream sauce” consisting of melted mayo.

Fried Rice, Seafood, Dried Scallops (2.5)

Confirmed that the sea cucumber here is different than the ones in Korea, and not in a good way (see most recently 5.305 Braised Fish Maw with Sea Cucumber).  I was hoping that perhaps Li Li could do something with it, but no.
