So, last nights dinner was sponsored by the local Chinese Chamber of Commerce to commemorate Chinese Moon Festival (September 19th this year), and National Day for the People’s Republic of China (64th year, October 1st).
The second part made me a little nervous (NSA, if your reading this, it was purely innocent, or I take the fifth amendment, whichever is more convenient). My opinion is that Chinese have experienced many leaders (rulers?) throughout their collective history. Celebrating “National Day” is more about celebrating what it means to be “Chinese” more than some kind of political agenda. Just my point of view.
Anyway, we got there a little late, missed the lion dancing.
But we were there for the food.
While I agree the quality (and selection) could have been better (some of the dishes were not as “Chinese” as I would have preferred), for me, the quality offset some of the quality issues. I guess I was in local mouse mode.
So raise a glass to the moon and the “motherland”. “clink”.
Enjoy. Eat well.
