Birthday Lunch at Choi Garden

There’s a tradition in our small office that the birthday celebrant brings food to the office on their birthday. This year everyone requested that I treat them at Choi Garden restaurant since they keep seeing the food on my blog. So their wish is my command.

I ordered all my favorites since I knew they would like it. I forgot to take pictures of the fried rice and hot and sour soup. As if rice and noodles weren’t enough carbs they also wanted to try the fried man tao.

I wanted to try the fried golden mushrooms because I remember eating them at Annapolis Seafood restaurant and they were delicious. Too bad at Choi’s they were horrible. All you taste is the flour batter coating the mushrooms. In the other restaurant they fried the mushrooms straight without the batter so you can taste the flavor of the crisp mushrooms.

The spareribs was everyone’s hands down favorite. It went so fast this is the only picture I was able to take.

I also ordered the hot prawn and chicken salad. It was amazingly crisp but a tad too sweet for my taste. It could have been super yummy if not for it being too sweet. No one else complained so I guess they liked it too. I’ll definitely order this again but I’ll be sure to tell them lessen the condensed milk.

My candle blowing skills were pathetic! I couldn’t even blow out a single candle. It took me 4 tries.

They got me an almond sans rival from Sugarhouse. It was one of my favorite cakes in Sugarhouse. The meringue layers were very crisp and the sliced almonds were abundant.
