The Culinary World Tour is Still in China
I really do have plans to move on in
my World Culinary Tour
(all while remaining in Bloomington, IN),
but it has been temporarily derailed.
the problem is this:
I have a friend who works full time
and it is rather difficult to schedule time for lunch with her.
And since we want to visit a local Afghan restaurant,
I want to wait until I can go with her.
Another consideration is that my friend is a vegetarian,
so any restaurant we choose must have vegetarian options.
I either have to wait until she is able to go with me
or I have to pick another port of cuisine.
In the meantime,
I have really been Jonesing for some
General Tso's Chicken.
there's just one little problem with that dish.
What to do?
General Tso's Shrimp instead.
And what do you know?
I even managed to go to
the Sunny Palace Restaurant
without ordering the Boneless Spare Ribs.
this dish is only available on the dinner menu,
meaning I had to pay more for this dish.
The breading was just right:
not too skimpy and not too much.
The sauce was nicely seasoned,
though a bit tame.
the shrimp were just slightly overcooked.
And by slightly,
I mean by 30 seconds or so.
It really doesn't take much to take shrimp from great to eh.
The bottom line?
This was a nice departure from my usual,
but I think I will be sticking to my regular dish from now on.
