« Birthday Festival Part One | Main | Dressing Up Cucumber »



Happy Birthday, Mark! If you're going to feast on holiday, this is certainly how to do it. You really know how to celebrate.

Whenever I see a whole fish, head still on, its carcass being carved out piece by piece, it reminds me why I respect Asian cuisines as much as I do. They care enough about the people eating their food to assure you that the fish you're eating is as fresh as possible. If the head is gone, I won't touch it. The eyes on that big fish are crystal clear - super fresh.

There's no way I could have kept up with you on this feast, but it certainly would have been fun trying! :-)

Have a great week!

Yeah. I've eaten there -- it was pretty amazing.

It's interesting to me that in Asia, buffets tend to feature the best foods, while in America, they tend to feature the worst, especially "Asian Buffets."

I think lobsters are really nice and scrumptious. Its just very expensive to buy.
