Phoenix Food Boutique

My cousin Ricky is visiting me in LA! He said, wow – you are such a pig, you get sooo excited talking about food. And… He is right 🙂 I am so passionate about food, nevermind the calories – what about how it makes you feel! Actually, I am like that about a lot of the things in my life now that I think about it.

When I first came to LA in June, my cousin Nancy who went to USC took me and my mom to this delicious restaurant called Phoenix in San Gabriel Valley – about 20 mins east of downtown LA. Oooo we had the full dinner for 4 and loved every bit of it. It was so nice to be in the familiar environment of a Chinese restaurant so many miles away from home – with waiters to spoke to us in Cantonese and a menu full of food I ate all my life, as a child and have so many memories attached to them. And… then there was new things I never tried but now I love!

Last night, I actually found the restaurant again by chance! It’s so yummy. We had duck egg congee, soy sauce chow mein and fried shrimp with candied walnuts. OMG can I please tell you about the shrimp! Delish… Chinese ppl love to eat late, like 10, 11pm it’s called 宵夜 (xiao ye) which means ‘Late Night Snack’. And we strolled in about quarter past ten ^_^

I don’t usually photograph my food but…

I BBMed these to my sweetie and he was up late in Toronto fiending for Chinese food and me 🙂

and then for dessert! I got these to take home. What are they called… ummm Bouut Tsai Go in Chinese.. what in English i don’t know, sugar pudding? Dunno.. it’s divine.

PS there mochi selection is unreal! There desserts are heavenly!
