Green Village

Lots of Chinese meals in a row. Here is dinner at Green Village (English names are always funny).


shrimp with wine sauce shrimp with wine sauce


sesame bun sesame bun


duck stuffed with sticky rice duck stuffed with sticky rice Pretty good stuff. The shrimp were too small, and not worth the effort... Lots of flavor though, and the sauce was awesome for dipping the breadlike sesame bun things. The duck was nice but we were pretty full by then.

Szechuan Shanghai

Had Chinese style breakfast yesterday. I forgot to check out the English name of this place... It was something simple like Szechuan Shanghai Restaurant, in Richmond. There used to be a place nearby my cousin's house that was REALLY good, but in the past year or so the head chef retired and it went downhill. It's since closed. This place was decent.

pork shank braised in soy sauce pork shank braised in soy sauce Sorry bout the crappy descriptions... The stuff is kinda weird to translate into English. The chinese donut was alright, but not great. The potstickers were actually really good... soupy inside like a siu long bao. They also had a good scallion pancake which I failed to photograph before it was all eaten.

Sichuan Garden

Didn't eat much interesting stuff this weekend. Lauren came to visit; she wants to go to BU. Halloween was alright. Also saw Sean's play over the weekend, and he was hilarious again. The other day for lunch I went to Sichuan Garden in Brookline with Becky, Lauren, Mike, Snezhana, Dave, and Ahrie. One of Mike or Snezhana's friends said they had pretty spicy stuff. It was funny fitting all of us in Dave's car...

spicy fried chicken spicy fried chicken The food was spicy I guess, but not that spicy. Still tasted pretty good though. A beef dish not pictured was well done, and I also liked the beans. They were nice and crisp. Other than that I ate pretty boring stuff this weekend... Subs, macaroni and cheese, sandwiches, and so on. Promise to bring more this week!

Maluken, Super 88 Sugar Bowl, Beijing Cafe, and Uno

Finally got my computer back up and running... I guess I'll put up a few pictures of the past few days. I'll keep the comments brief since this is gonna be pretty long.

spicy beef noodle soup spicy beef noodle soup This is from Sugar Bowl in 88 the other night. Mike says the spicy beef noodle soup was good, and is the best deal in Super 88. It was the first time I tried the bun there, which was pretty good too at $6.25. I liked the pork a lot. Always goes back to the Vietnamese place being inexplicably cheaper than the Japanese place (Ajisen Ramen) by a few dollars, even though the food is better and the portions are larger.


cashew chicken from Beijing Cafe cashew chicken from Beijing Cafe Takeout style Chinese from a couple days ago... at least it fills you up.


fish sandwich from Uno fish sandwich from Uno Went to Uno twice within what, one or two weeks? Someone felt like going and there weren't any other options. As you can see, the piece of fish on this sandwich is pretty damn big. I had to kinda fold it over to fit it. Fish wasn't bad, but coulda been better... A little dry, and not enough meat. The fries were seasoned like curly fries, but not curly. I approve! That's about it for now. I'll be updating regularly again now. :D
