at Tao Yuan
with the family
Children’s Day + Extended Administrative Leave, Day 3 (see previously 7.122 I Got Big Game…).
Together in Manila. First time this year (see most recently 6.361 Corn Butter Itame). Taking advantage of Children’s Day, which was a Korean national holiday Thursday. They flew in Wednesday night. We’ll be flying back to Seoul on Monday.
Getting back to Manila, we had dinner at Tao Yuan (see generally 5.088 Chili Crab; most recently 7.059 Roast Soy Chicken).
The Singaporean Tofu — another dish from the new menu (see generally 7.001 Once More…; see also 6.095 DONE) — was hit/miss. The tofu itself, deep-fried egg custard tofu, was excellent. The sauce, minced pork in brown gravy, was good. But together, not so much.
Next time, maybe the tofu in a spicy mapo-style sauce (see generally 1.140 Mapo Tofu…).
