It was my brother’s birthday yesterday … one of the reasons I went to Dallas.
Dude … look at this car Jenny and I passed on the way to Dallas Tuesday night.
Can’t read that? I’ll help you out. It says “I <3 Gym”. Jenny asked if he was in shape … I laughed so loud.
My brother’s birthday celebration started at 2:30pm yesterday.
We started out with food in the tummy!
3530 West Walnut Street
I didn’t get any pictures of my food but I got the Korean BBQ | $7.50. It was delicious. They remodeled and made it bigger so it has to be good!
Then we went shopping for a good three hours or so. I bought nothing. It felt good to not use money.
We then went for my brother’s birthday dinner at:
2600 14th Street
We started off with the Peking Duck. For this dish, you had to preorder it since it’s high demand and it takes a while to make.
The dude is slicing up the duck right at our table!
All excited. Ugh … need to start weight loss NOW.
This it what it looks like when it’s done. YUM!
This goes with the duck. It’s Hoisin Sauce and shredded green onions with a type of bread. Mmmm.
Mmmm … and you make a sandwich out of it!! Delicious! This dish is very popular for big dinners … or at least to me and my family so it was much needed and much deliciousness … Hmm … weird word choices.
They then take the leftovers of the duck back and fry it and mix in some kind of vegetables. Yum. It’s very fattening but so good.
There was also fried rice, asparagus with beef and onions,
curry onions and chicken, and pad thai.
It was a lot of food …
and we ate it all!
We had apple pie with ice cream as a birthday cake. Mmm … yums!
Then we played a board game my brother got as a gift from a friend. It’s called Quelf. (Qu –elf). Let’s just say, I kept calling it something else the whole night. Whoops!
P.S. I won!
It was a fun day and night but we had to cut it short for our roadtrip back home.
