A Night on the Town

16 Better a little with the fear of the LORD
than great wealth with turmoil.

17 Better a small serving of vegetables with love than a fattened calf with hatred.

--Proverbs 15:16-17

Here we are with our friend at a favorite little "jaulauh" (restaurant) in Tai Wai. Yes, we are sitting outdoors, it's right by the road, the plastic chairs a challenge for the more mature bottoms of the family...but the food is exquisite. We eschewed some of the more outrageous items on the menu:

--crisp deep fried pig intestines

-- minced mud carp

--deboned ducks web with xo sauce

--spiced chicken ginger feet

--pepper salt frogs

--fried cuttlefish balls

--fishes brain congee

We opted, instead, for some of the relatively safe options such as sweet & sour chicken, fresh squid, and vegetables. If our friend looks slightly disgruntled in the picture, it's because she tried in vain to order a couple of vegetarian dishes, only to find rich layers of pork fat between the eggplant and tofu dishes she had ordered.

Do note our increasingly improving use of chopsticks!!!!
