Lunch at Mandarin Tea Garden


Hubby and I  both love Chinese food. We used to frequent most of the Chinese Restaurants here in the city when I was still working at the downtown area. But now that I already have Bella,  we can only eat out or even go out on a date "when necessary." It means that being on a date is only a side trip to our intended purpose of going out.

Speaking of  "necessary", hubby took a leave from work last week to finalize some transactions with the bank. Since the occasion calls for it, before heading home hubby and I ate the "necessary" lunch at the nearby branch of Mandarin Tea Garden.

I ordered Pork Asado Rice Toppings while hubby ordered his ever-favorite Beef Brisket Rice Toppings. We also added Pork Siomai to our order.

After..
We were so full and  very delighted with our lunch and of course very happy with the opportunity to go on a "date" even just for a while. We did a little shopping  for Bella  and have his cellular phone repaired before going home.
