Chez Buddha - Father's Day Dinner

The Buddha family celebrates father’s day twice a year.  One in June, just like most place in the world.  The other in August, following the Taiwan tradition.  Oh wait, we also celebrate mother’s day with DadT in May since he was pretty much a single parent.  Don’t you just love the pink picnic tablecloth?  Hehehe!

Chez Buddha - DIY Zongzi 粽子

Every year, MomJ would spend a weekend just before the Duanwu Festival 端午節 to make zongzi.  This year, the senior lady (along with her senior friends) left for river cruise in Europe on the day of the festival.  (Sigh…MomJ, don’t you feel guilty leaving your kids all alone at home during one of the major Chinese celebrations?)

Park Here Seafood Restaurant 百喜海鮮酒家

After chatting with the owner-wife during our first visit to the restaurant (for dinner).  She acknowledged that her husband is the restaurant's dim sum chef and encouraged us to return for a lunch visit.  After a little research (plus there's a small low-key photo near the entrance), the owner-husband was the former award-winning dim sum chef at Empire Chinese Cuisine 金粵軒海鮮酒家.

Chef Tony Seafood Restaurant 頤東大酒樓

MomJ was heading out with other seniors for a river cruise in Europe.  The old lady sure knows how to enjoy.  So, being the wonderful daughter-in-law, I offered to drive her to the airport.  It's our usual norm to go dim sum before departure.  Why?  So she can bring some kind of Chinese food for her long flight.  Yup, so Chinese.

Since Buddha Boy was out golfing with the boys, Jujube and I were on our own food hunting.  Located next to a car wash (in the same building), we've driven by this Japanese noodle shop so many times and, each time, we've told ourselves that we must pay it a visit.  And now, we're finally here.
