General Tso's Pork?
While out shopping for groceries and other assorted goods
before our latest snowstorm hit the other day,
I stopped in at my favorite Chinese restaurant,
I know from experience that the $7.50* or so that I spend
here be will vastly outweighed on what I will save at the grocery store.
*They got a larger tip this time because they deserved it!
Here is a real money saving tip for you:
Never go to the grocery store hungry.
You will easily spend $20 to $40 or more on food
than you need or want.
And that's a fact.
Now on this fine day I finally got up the nerve to ask
a special request.
One of my all time favorite American-Chinese dishes
is General Tso's Chicken.
However, you will remember that I am allergic to chicken.
I asked if there was any way that they could prepare
this fine dish with pork instead of chicken.
The kind gentleman replied that he would have to ask,
but he thought that they might be able to use
the pork from the sweet and sour pork and combine it
with the sauce for the General Tso's Chicken for me.
After consulting with the kitchen,
he informed me that it was indeed possible.
I thanked him and looked forward to this dish.
Delicious as always.
Finally, the hybrid General Tso's/pork dish arrived with
It was good.
It was nice.
It also reminded me just why I so loved
General Tso's Chicken
- for the chicken.
Still, I very much appreciate the effort
and thoughtfulness that the staff of
Sunny Palace went through for me.
And that is just part of why this is my
favorite Chinese restaurant in B-town.
Remember - when you find a favorite
restaurant; frequent it, promote it, help it
- especially in this economy.
