A food friend of ours organized a massive 18-person, multi-course Chinese Thanksgiving meal on the weekend before turkey day as a way to celebrate our love of food.

We started with a house soup that contained dry winter melon and shredded pork.

These clams were served in a bean sauce that really popped. Super flavorful and clams were cooked perfectly.

These fried pork chops were incredibly tender and juicy. Definitely one of my favorite courses.

I’m not usually into full veggie dishes, but this mushroom platter was really incredible and satisfying. Those things at the bottom are little tofu skin crepes that are filled with a variety of mushrooms.

This whole fish (flounder, I believe) was another top dish of the day.

The meat was succulent and tender, and the veggies were a nice vehicle to deliver the sauce that they sponged up.

Fried and chopped lobster with some sort of Cheetos-like cheese coating. Incredibly unique for a Chinese joint. These were gobbled up almost instantly.

Beef! Yes! This was likely either flank or strip, but it came out on a sizzling skillet and was served in a really delicious brown sauce. Very tender.

Also a winning dish, this chicken was basically deconstructed and then re-assembled with the meat having been replaced by mixed-protein sticky rice. That rice was then coated and blanketed with extremely crisp chicken skin. So awesome, and so labor intensive.

Another hit dish was this dungeoness crab on a bef of flat, wide noodles (think chow fun style).

This was a very photogenic dish, and the crab meat was delicious.

The noodles could have used a bit more of a flavorful sauce, but otherwise this was really good.

On the side we enjoyed some stir fried and garlicky pea shoots.

And for dessert was a warm bowl of sweet bean porridge, of which I did not get a good shot.

All in, this meal only cost $45pp with tax and tip included. I definitely recommend giving this place a try. Especially for the chicken/sticky rice, fried pork chops and whole fish.
