Yesterday the tribe went to Seres in NW Portland for a very nice Chinese dinner, built around Peking duck, as well as to celebrate Mother of the Child's birthday.
The meal was quite good. The duck itself was some of the best Peking duck I've had in a restaurant in the US, though tillyjane (a/k/a my Mom) makes better. We'd originally planned to eat her duck, but switched to Seres because she wasn't feeling well this past week, and didn't want to do food prep for a dozen people and possibly gift us all with her ick. She did make it to dinner, though.
My dinner companions were Lisa Costello, the_child, Mother of the Child, tillyjane, AH, Dad, (step)Mom, lillypond (a/k/a my sister), mlerules and both halves of Team E—. We had appetizers of pot stickers, scallion cakes and barbecued pork (Chinese style, of course), and a dinner of hot and sour soup, steamed rice, vegetable fried noodles, mapu tofu, dry fried string beans, chicken and mushroom fried rice, General Tso's chicken, sesame beef, mooshu pork, and of course, Peking duck. Plus ice cream and fruit for dessert.
Yeah, we ate a lot. And it was good. Highly recommended, and a very nice outing for post-operative me. Mmmm.
