Happy Lunch At Manchurian Restaurant, Aberdeen

DURING THE DAY... I normally meet up with Mary... by this time, she will be free from her chores in the guest house.  This is the time we have our ladies' tete-a-tete, sometimes at cafe for coffee and cakes. 

On this particular day, we did something different.  I managed to coax her to have a Chinese lunch with me!  Yes, I need lots of persuading and coaxing to invite her for she always tell me that she can cook whatever I want to eat!  See... she is so-so... what's the word for it??  LOL... Always so sweet and obliging!  She definitely can cook better, no doubt about that... but on this day, I wanted her to sit back and relax... and I am so glad that she finally did that! 

We went to the one and only Chinese restaurant nearby our place called Manchurian Restaurant, though the food is mainly Chinese dishes.  Since both of us are "small eaters", we ordered just a plate of seafood flat noodles that is similar to "wantan hor" in my hometown, Ipoh. 
This plate of flat noodles... oh my, it was a giant portion... 
Very generous with the big prawns and calamari too... 
Only the greens seems to be left out in the dish... 
I am very greedy... I could not resist this glutinous sticky rice... 
We managed to finish the whole bowl of this..
As for the noodles, the remaining portion went to Aaron's tummy!
The total cost came to around 18 pounds... 
Happy Smiles from us when the food arrived!  :)

  1. From the looks of the food, I must say Mary definitely cooks better dishes but it is very nice of you asking her to just relax and enjoy this treat.
