Anna and I ate here once last time I was in
Also as an appetiser (though it came after one of the mains) was two steamed Vegetable Dumplings. I’m not quite sure what is inside of these, but whatever it is, it’s good. And the light and fluffy dough made me wish we had ordered more.
Our other main was the interestingly titled Au Lac Eight Special. The menu offered no more information than “Combination Hot Pot” so we didn’t really know what to expect. Lots of different kinds of veggies were simmered in a brown sauce with various mushrooms, tofu, and mock meats. It was hard to tell what was what, but the blend of textures was a nice change and the sauce was really rich and yummy.
Apparently Chinese New Year celebrations started early in Dickson. This dragon and his accompanying drummers visited all the restaurants and put on a show. Two men, one of them bent over at the waist, managed to dance around a semi-cramped restaurant without knocking anything over or tripping over themselves.
Happy year of the Ox everyone!
