New Year’s Eve rolled around and my sis called to let us know she was in town and wanted to know if we would like to meet up for dinner.  So after getting ready last minute, we jumped at the offer and headed out the door.   We went a bit early as well fearing crowds of people and our choice of restaurant being booked solid.

Starter:  broth type soup


Soy sauce chicken with a few slices of spicy jelly fish salad on top.


Baby bok choy, simmered with ground pork & garlic cloves.


Chinese style lobster!
(the only way lobster should be prepared – ever IMO)


Abalone w/Chinese mushrooms over baby bok choy.

All in all, it was a mighty tasty meal with great company and no family drama. Going in early for dinner helped a lot as the restaurant did fill up and was very loud by the time we were leaving.  What more could a girl ask for on New Year’s Eve?
