    Looks yummy.

    I hope ‘next time’ is very soon. Here’s a prayer that you have a safe, quick, and uneventful return home.

    Thank you Father for coming. It was such great occasion. I wish I could make it for a blognic.
    But I had an opportunity to finally meet you in person and introduce myself during a schola rehearsal at the Shrine.

    Have a safe trip back home!

    My favorite place got bought by another family. The hot and sour soup has no sour. The pot stickers are too doughy and the dipping sauce is too sweet. I now will have to drive into St. Louis to get good Chinese food. :’-(

    This reminds me of some comments made about Chinese food after eating out at a Chinese restaurant with my parents when I was only about 12. After saying how good the food tasted to me, my dad said: “It’s the sauce the makes or breaks the chinese food since the same ingredients are almost always used.” I remembered that as I grew into adulthood and in the course of many years and travels savored the food at many different chinese restaurants. Only a very few could come close to matching the flavor of the Yangtze China Inn which has since been sold and is under new ownership. But you can still google it to find its history. My favorite was MooGooGai Pan over pork fried rice.

  12. Dr. Eric says:

    All of my favorite Chinese food restaurants are now either closed or have changed management. Jade Garden in Olivette, MO; China Royal 2 in Fairview Heights, IL; Oriental Garden in Chester, IL (they taught me to speak Chinese); and now Dynasty in Sparta, IL.

  13. It’s very common now for people to sell their restaurant to newer immigrants; the next owner keeps it as long as the tax breaks last, and then sells it to someone else unless he’s very successful. If I recall correctly, Jennifer Lee’s book The Fortune Cookie Chronicles said that there are columns and columns of advertisements of restaurants for sale in some Chinese publications. People buy restaurants in towns they’ve never even seen, just like they sign up to work at restaurants in towns they’ve never heard of.
