Recap of our DC trip

11 Jan

I know it has been about a month since my last post but what a busy month it’s been!

But the new year brings new beginnings and I hope to bring a lot of exciting stuff to the blog this year.

Healthy Chinese cooking

13 Nov

Despite the fact that I was raised on delicious Thai food growing up, and that my parents owned a fabulous restaurant, I just loved eating bad Chinese food in college.  You know what I’m talking about… the kind of entrees where the “chicken” is triple battered and the greasy noodles saturate the cardboard take-out box.  I’m not sure why I wasted my money on such meals. I guess I could blame it on my youthful ignorance, or maybe it was because my palette had not yet matured.  But, alas, I have grown up and I would like to think that I have a higher standard for food these days.  For example, I only prefer twice fried real chicken (or pork).

This is not to say that I don’t love a good Chinese meal.  One of our favorite restaurants is actually a Chinese place located in Pittsburgh’s Oakland neighborhood called the Orient Express.  You can check out the pictures of the dishes we’ve eaten on my Foodspotting page (this is also our favorite place for salt and pepper pork chops, the glue that holds our marriage together).  We love this place because the food seems pretty authentic and it’s made-to-order.  The service is also excellent. We have never waited longer than 10 minutes for our food, and we order a lot!
