Sunday Feast

It’s hard not to notice the brisk business that Choi Garden has been doing since it replaced Country Waffles on Annapolis St. in Greenhills (Country Waffles was briefly replaced by another same-concept restaurant but it was forgettable). Its parking lot and the nearby street parking areas are often packed, which always prompts me to drive past it. I was about to do the same last Sunday when I noticed one vacant slot just in time. Fate.

And as Fate would have it, I sated myself Sunday night with crisp Peking duck skin mellowed out by slivers of leeks and cucumber and a dab of hoisin sauce, and wrapped for the perfect bite in a thin floury pancake. Heaven. After five rolls of duck skin, another word came to mind. Coma. The duck skin would have been enough but we also had the meat served minced (lettuce-wrap-style) and ordered yang chow fried rice and sweet and sour pork. It was a meal for four enjoyed by two. But such is a meal you never regret.
