The Boiling Crab

FOR TONIGHT'S DINNER WE WENT TO THE BOILING CRAB... A restaurant we have been talking about for more than a month now and finally got to go this evening...
Just fifteen minutes away from our house...
We thought we were the early birds... It was only around 5pm...


But the crowd was already there ... Waiting to be seated...
Getting prepared for the food...the table is laid with a white non greasy paper.. and I was told that we were to put the food on top of the table itself ...
Steamed rice...
Fresh fried calamari
Sweet Potatoes is our favourite..
Our food arrived within minutes..
Crayfish...
Fresh prawns ....
There are no plates served.. Everything is eaten and laid just like that on the table.. I don't fancy seeing the dishes served in plastic bags... Don't really understand why they are served like this, I guess it is kind of special to them.. No complaints about the food though, the seafood are very fresh and the total cost came to $41... Well, I guess once is good enough for me :)

  1. I like the sweet potato fries.. Been seeing a lot of it in Food Network.. Many cooks bake sweet potato fries instead of potato fries already..

  3. Good for seafood lovers this place. For me, I always avoid crab because so troublesome to peel. And if prawns come with shell, I also refuse to eat hah...hah...So if I come here, I only eat the Fried Calamari and Sweet Potatoes! So rugi one.

  6. hmmm.....something like the Banana leaf rice kot...only minus the banana leaf

    I wonder why they used plastic to serve the food. I thought over there they are very environmentally friendly.

  8. Crayfish? I thought you're in Sacramento? Have you moved to Louisiana??

    I thought they served in plastic bags like that in those southern states after they got hit by the hurricanes. Wonder why it becomes standard serving method now >.<

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Cookies For Chinese New Year 2022 In San Jose

MISSING IN BLOGGING AGAIN.... this has become a norm now ever since I arrived to this continental... LOL... Now I understand the word of Full Commitment when it comes to taking care of baby... seriously, I have to be fully commited and occupied by this little cheeky fella who is now going to be his 10th month soon.  Wow... time flies, when I first came, he was just slightly over four months... that being said, it is soon time fo rme to pack my bags and leave.  LOL... My 6 months being a babysitter is soon over... and did I say I can hardly wait?  NO, NO... I love my job here and I am going to miss my baby tremendously!  I only don't miss his cries!  LOL...  OK, by the time I write this post, Chinese New Year is over, it is now the 4th day of CNY.  Two days before the Lunar New Year, my daughter-in-law and I cooperated fully and baked a few types of cookies.  Looking back at these pictures, I dare say that we did a good job... not on the cookies but at least we had a great time bond

Buffet Lunch At Baccanal Caesar Palace Hotel, Las Vegas

BUFFET LUNCH... We made reservation for a nice buffet a week before we came to Las Vegas, the buffet is one of its kind in Caesar Palace, Baccanal is the name of the restaurant.  My kids were saying that we must have at least one good and memorable meal while here in Las Vegas and they chose the seafood buffet.  It cost around $90 per pax and being Asians, sure we would be attracted to just seafood!  Alaska Crabs... hairy crabs....lobster claws..  clams etc etc...  Oh, I did not take much photos on what we ate, just too busy stuffing in and to take out the camera with dirty hands and all.  LOL.... Just the initial stage and after that, it was all about eating and eating... oh, by the way, they only allowed 90 minutes in the restaurant, but I don't think they timed anyone... LOL.. Anyway, we took that amount of time to finish our food, sipping free champayne and mocktail too.  What a scrumptious meal... from mains to desserts, I think we only had one meal done for that day itself...
