Dinner 2018


Recommended Posts

Somewhat unusually, I cooked dinner tonight for three young guests - sisters.

While the three sisters declared themselves happy with all the dishes, their runaway favourite was the mushrooms which tasted better than my unappealing photograph shows. Four people, five dishes plus rice. The formula for Chinese eating. One more dish than participants.

No photo. Two toasted heels of bread with ketchup and this time I went a bit up market and added some HP sauce.

A local restaurant at a night market. Much respect for their immense patience and kindness for us tourists. Filling out a form to order is the usual procedure but they let me do it another way.
