I’ve been a little obsessed with Peking Garden

I’m embarrassed to say that I’ve had Peking Garden three times in the last four weeks. I’m more embarrassed to say that I’ve had it delivered two weekends in a row. And I’m most embarrassed to be sharing this information on the internet. Consider it an act of love from me to you, dear readers.

The spouse and I have been been thoroughly enamored of the veggie fried rice ($8); I even included it on my list of Five Things in Februrary. It’s so damn good, and full of veggies. Make a point of ordering it in place or, or in addition to, steamed white rice.

We’ve also been on a tofu kick recenty, and have tried three tofu dishes: General Tso’s, Kung Po, and tofu in a hot garlic sauce ($11 each). Our favorite of the group was the General Tso’s. The tofu in all dishes is perfectly fried, but the General Tso’s sauce is sweet and a little spicy and perfect.

If you’re dining in, treat yourself to a Polynesian cocktail. They look like a bunch of fun.
