Ladies who lunch is a phrase to describe slim, well-off, old-money, well-dressed women who meet for lunch socially, normally during the working week. Typically, the women involved are married and non-working. Normally the lunch is in a restaurant, perhaps in a department store during shopping. Sometimes there is the pretext of raising money for charity. -wiki
SLIM? well off? really? oh, all mommies would love that eh? but since most of us are not on the slim side, let’s just focus on social lunch. How nice can it be? imagine meeting your mom friend for a lunch every week or even every other Friday. Now that’s what a breather means. LOL
But really guys, I think all moms should this. Meeting other moms for a Friday lunch. And I am sure moms would enjoy this ‘time out’ just like what we did last Friday!
Our usual meal will include yang chow, siomai, hakaw, sweet and sour fillet and broccoli. That is how I am used to eating at Chinese (or Chinese sounding or looking) restaurant. I can’t let go of hakaw. I have seen how it is made and whenever I went to a resto, I just have to try it.
So last Friday, when I heard we will be eating in a Chinese Restaurant, I was excite. WoW! Hakaw overload! Yes, I am expecting siomai and Hakaw.. LOL
The appetizer were served. A plate of cold cuts, soy bean, Soy Chicken, pork bbq (sweet asado, super yum!yum!), century egg and jelly fish and pork knuckles cut:
The soup was hot and sour.. something that my taste bud does not like.. you know I am all for sweet and salty..
The rice.. yang chow? nah! it’s RICH MAN’S RICE… fried rice with dried scallop and egg white. How’s that for a yang chow patron? The taste.. heavenly.. I mean tasteful. Since I am used to yang chow, I was expecting this fried rice to be bland in taste, surprisingly, it is waaay better than Yang Chow. Now I don’t know why it is called as such but our theory is, because you need viands with this kind of rice unlike yang chow where it seems to be a complete rice. In rich man’s rice, you need to spend more for the viands. Sounds logical eh?
Other food includes: crab, squid in broccoli and shrimp in salted egg. Now that is something worth raving for. Shrimp in salted egg? I thought it was cheese! If not for my girdle.. opps! did I just say I wore a girdle? of course, how do you think I am to wear this dress without my bulgesss showing?
but come to think of, there is still some bulge showing..hahays..
so back to the food, yeah if not for those lacey girdles, I would have finished all the shrimp and the peking duck in lettuce.. yum yum yum
The Peking Duck served in two. The skin is carved and was wrapped. Not my type as the skins taste is overpowering. Second serving is with veggies, wrapped in lettuce and added with sauce. Now, this part, I regret so much that I did not took 3 servings. It was good and something I can eat over and over. As for the dessert, we were served with Almond Jelly:
And you think we went straight home? nah.. you know how it is with Fedhz and me. We stayed a bit to check out Payless.. it’s like Pay less.. a shoe store from US. Had fun at Toy Kingdom, then bought two Beyblade for the boys. She let me tried Milk Tea Bubble or so..
