Dinner At Din Tai Fung Restaurant, Westfield, San Jose

THE WAITING GAME.... Dining out especially during Fridays and weekends is no joke.  Even after making reservations, we need to wait for two and a half hours to get a table.  We reached the Westfield mall around 4pm and the estimated time for our dinner is around 6pm... after walking two hours in the mall, finishing two cups of Cold Stone, we still have to wait for 10 more people in front of us. 

Oh, we did not have to queue up of course, they will send a text to my son's handphone.  After being said and done, how come I did not mention the name of the restaurant???  LOL... The long wait was from Din Tai Fung, a Taiwanese restaurant which has made its way to this part of the world as well.  I know there have branches in certain states in Malaysia but not Ipoh.... I have tried a few times but nothing like this long wait ever before.... 

Outside Din Tai Fung...
Going to our turn anytime soon....
Mostly Asians... many come to pick up as well....
And we joined in the crowd.... 
keeping certain distance away....
Famous for their Siew Loong Pau... 
Beef noodles was tasty too!
Fried rice with chicken chop....
And Spicy Wanton.... 
Nope, we did not manage to finish them all....
Doggie bag fried rice and two of these for the next day.... 
How much?
I think it came to around $60...
Don't convert and it is definitely cheaper!

  2. Oh? They have Din Tai Fung there too? Bet the prices would be similar to outlets in KL before conversion. RM60 is cheap! LOL!!!

    Wowwwww!!!! Standing in a long queue with a baby is no joke! I would have gone some place else. Your grandson must be a very good boy, did not make noise.

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...
