For this Ramen & Friends dinner, Yoshie took us to Cha Chan Tang –a Hong Kong style diner in Chinatown. They had cheap shark fins soup for $2.50. It was imitation shark fin using cellophane noodles. Tasted very beefy and pretty good. I also liked the foods with condensed milk. The Portuguese Chicken Rice was interesting. Very creamy.
Some dislikes: My curry beef brisket wasn’t quite what expected. I was hoping for slow cooked brisket, but it was more like flank steak slices you’d get in your Beef & Broccoli. Also Rob’s Fried Rice with Sausage was actually hot dog. I was hoping it was Chinese Sausage.
Well at least everyone thought the waitresses were cute.
