somerville kitchen special feature: One week's worth of delicious munchies from The Empress (see October 8 entry - And The Winner Is...). Power Point Slides from the original contest entry.
A gem of a restaurant in the neighbourhood. The place was completely packed on a Wednesday night, a testament of its good food and service. The Marsala dry shrimps were sure my personal favourite - I could have munched on two of those platters.
Given eyes set on beef chow mein, we opted for the "Manchurian" chicken instead of the beef. "Manchurian" refers to the area of Northeast China (and some say it includes part of Russia). This is definitely worth trying - a hot, spicy tangy sauce. In fact, all dishes had very unique and freshly tasting spices.
An excellent choice of a restaurant, thank you Empress.
