February 4, 2016 Lunch – East Ocean, Dinner – PPI Posole and Enchiladas with Shed Red Sauce
Suzette had a business guest who was of Chinese heritage who offered to take us to lunch. I suggested that we go to East Ocean.
We decided to get one dish each. I recommended a roasted ½ duck, stir fried baby Bok Choy with fried tofu, and a large pile of Manila clams in spicy sauce. This my favorite dinner at any Chinese restaurant in Albuquerque. Our host Luan’s family owned a Chinese restaurant and he has worked in Chinese restaurants for years. He liked the food, especially the roast duck, which seems to be the standard by which he judges the quality and capabilities of a Chinese restaurant.
I loved every dish. We finished only one dish, the clams, which makes it the favorite. Clams were $9.95, roast duck was $10.95, and vegetables with fried tofu was about $13.00. All the dishes were delicious. I recommend this meal at this restaurant for a great Chinese meal. East Ocean also serves all the usual Chinese American favorites, like sweet and sour anything and Kung Pao anything.
We now have accumulated a refrigerator full of PPIs. We decided to eat the week old Posole and Blue Corn Enchladas.
I heated up the Posole and we split the PPI plate of enchiladas and spinach I made the other evening while we watched the Democratic debate and spoke to Willy, who is vacationing in Chen Mai, Thailand, be Skype.
I ate a few bites of chocolate mousse cake with a cup of tea.
Suzette’s diet is beginning to work. She has lost three pounds by giving up alcohol justly.
