Chinese Food

SP and I spent yesterday down the shore visiting two of my aunts and my grandmother who are staying there for the week. We had a very filling breakfast with my mom and stepdad, so we weren't ready for food again until we got home around 4:30. We were both exhausted so we decided to keep things simple and get takeout Chinese.

SP loves fried wontons:

... which seem to be filled with a small amount of ground meat. I've never been a huge fan of their chewy texture but he loves dipping them into the fluorescent pink sauce.

We were happy to see that this place has the kind of crunchy noodles that we like:

SP also got some shrimp fried rice:

I stuck with a safe bet and got the roast pork egg foo yung:

I love the rich, brown gravy, especially with the rice:

I also ordered an egg roll. Their egg rolls are some of the best I've ever had.

We really like this place and are anxious to try some other dishes, but SP was a little put off when we went to pick up the food and discovered they'd raised their prices. What was once on the moderate-expensive side of greasy Chinese food crossed the line over to downright expensive. I'm still willing to experiment with other items on the menu, especially after seeing The Food Pornographer's recent post about Chinese takeout.
