An Exotic Chinese Dinner Treat By Mama

After 10 days away from Sacramento, we were finally back in the ranch before dusk.  After cleaning up and unpacking, my sister made another "wise suggestion."  She asked us whether we wanted to try the famous Chinatown restaurant or not, to her, it is the Best Chinese Restaurant in Sacramento!  This suggestion put a wide smile on my face... after staying for nearly three weeks, I really miss having a proper Chinese set dinner....
We were early... that was the best part.. the food would come out fast, right?
This is a set dinner offer... 
For $70usd or so, we got to taste 7 + 1 dish...
Add another $2usd, they gave an extra bonus dish.. LOL...
Just look at the American chicken..... super fresh looking, right?
stewed pork ribs with celery...
  fish fillets with greens...
this is special.... it came out in a edible basket!
taste something like our "kacang puteh" 
do we have this "design" here in Malaysia?
then comes the Red Lobster!! 
but not as "giant" as the previous post .. but equally fresh!
this is the Bonus Dish...  $2usd to top up....
For these dishes above with soup, the bill only came to $70plus... 
Isn't that super cheap for those earning and living in US?
Over here, I guess we have to pay around RM250-300 for this set of dinner...
This meal was sponsored by my mom...
I remember her telling us that we should give her a chance to TREAT us!
So sweet of her... LOL...

  19. I like the exterior colour of the chicken, but the inside doesn't look too cooked; it's still red. I need my chicken to be thoroughly cooked. Hahaha!

    I must admit the price is very attractive!
