Another old movie reference (my brain is stuck). No, not really (we don’t play mah jongg). Just some old, and new friends getting together. Two journalists and two accountants, all food people. One of the journalists, “A” was one of the first (actually the second) journalists allowed to enter PRC China even before President Nixon. Talk about having cred.

Last week, we met at one of her favorite haunts, Kirin Restaurant. Weird website, good food. The other journalist “M” did the ordering (and the paying).

BBQ Ribs (Chinese Style)

BBQ Ribs (Chinese Style)

A little on  the sweet side, some smokiness, not falling off the bone, but tender enough to be deemed very satisfactory.

Steamed Fish Fillets

An abundance of ginger and green onions (a good thing).

Stir-Fried Noodles

I guess we needed some kind of starch. Good taste. A little too much gravy (just a smidgen) for my liking. Not complaining, just sayin’.

Lastly, the pièce de résistance.

Roast Duck Bao Buns

Roast Duck Bao Buns

With duck meat. Not Beijing Duck, roast duck. Skin slightly crispy. Nice smoky aroma and flavor. Plum sauce on the side (didn’t need it). I could have eaten a whole order by myself. Just a plate of roast duck bao buns (and a pot of tea). Done 🙂

Much thanks to M for hosting.

Enjoy. Eat well.
