The Surrogate Valentine/Daylight Savings Double Feature is tonight so I gathered together with my cast/crew for a day-before dinner.
“I thought you were a vegan,” Mike said.
Uh….nope! I’ve been wanting to try Feng Mao Mutton Kebab 2 for a while now, just never had a group big enough to go in on a meat fest with me. We took up half the place!
It’s in Koreatown, so we started off with complimentary banchan…
…and egg custard…
…I devoured 2 plates that looked like this while going over the menu.
As you can see, this place is also Chinese; I spoke in broken Mandarin with the waitress, then gave up. Deciding on food for a huge group frightens me!
Gary took over the ordering, and also the BBQ duties…
…though we got a lot of help from the servers.
So. Much. Meat!
I lost count of how many I had. At least a dozen. Maybe 15?
Mostly mutton, dipped in cumin seasoning. But plenty of pork + beef soaked in sauce…
…and chicken, straight up!
In addition to all of those skewers, I ate 3 pieces of fried prawns in mayo with walnuts…
…and probably 4 pieces of this fried salted…cod? Pork? I can’t remember anymore!
More double fried something was also consumed…
…in addition to Ma Po Tofu. Which also had meat.
There were vegetarian skewer options too, I just didn’t have any…
…though I did try some of Abe’s bok choy with shrooms.
God, the food was really good. I don’t know how, but we conquered all of it!
Probably best not to wear cashmere, like I did. Julius is gonna be obsessed with this sweater!
…written/directed by and starring one of our very talented dinner dates, Mye.
An intense, important, incredibly powerful and personal movie.
A lot to digest last night.
