Anna's Garden

My family and I were 'hunting' for a good Chinese restaurant along Spring Mountain Rd. and came across Anna's Garden.  We decided to give the place a chance.  What makes this place different from other Chinese restaurants is that it specializes in Hong Kong cuisine.  HK cuisine is obviously influenced from China (mainly Cantonese) and other Asian countries.  This is the second HK style restaurant I've been to and am starting to notice the slight differences between HK and Chinese foods.  I think its the type/amount of spices and salt that are added in their foods?  I should research about it...

When we entered the Anna's Garden, there was only Chinese speaking patrons there.  I thought to myself this place has got to be legit then my dad thought the same thing, but said it aloud!

The dish I ordered was the Tofu Hot Pot.  It had a creamy texture to it and the chunks of tofu were HUGE:


We got Chinese broccoli as our main veggie dish.  I thought it was perfect, just the way I liked it.  The greens were boiled firmly and poured sparingly of sauce:


HK Style Noodle with Satay Shrimp - my mom's favorite:


If you're curious to see what HK style food is about, come visit Anna's Garden!

Fat Boy

On my cheat day I ate at Fat Boy located on 4425 Stewart St Suite 107 (corner of Stewart St & Lamb Blvd).  It's a small fast food joint that serves hamburgers, pizzas, burritos, salads, smoothies (their syrups are homemade), milkshakes, and Mexican food:

Chencho Fries- a Fat Boy favorite!  These fries are topped with salsa verde, grilled onions, chopped chicken, and melted cheese:

Pastrami Boyger- beef patty topped with pastrami, mustard, grilled onions, pickles and mayo.  If you need a serious protein fix, this "boyger" is for you:

Fat Boy makes their meat patties daily and are never frozen.  Toppings and vegetables are prepared as needed, and buns are delivered to the restaurant fresh daily.  If you're feeling gluttonous, check out Fat Boy!

Flock & Fowl

If you're in the mood to eat a chicken dish, I highly recommend checking out Flock & Fowl.  This restaurant specializes in making Hainanese Chicken Rice.  It's a simple dish consisting of poached organic, free range chicken with marinated cucumbers and preserved mustard greens as seen in the photo below.  You may dip the chicken in ginger scallion sauce, house made sambal (chile), and house made soy sauce for more flavor/kick (not pictured).  Also, the sides to choose from are organic egg, Chinese sausage (lap cheung), chicken broth, or more chicken rice:

On the day we dined there, the Chicken & Poached Egg Congee was the special dish of the day.  Congeeis a rice porridge that's common throughout Asian countries.  It can be eaten plain, but usually comes with garnishes and sides:



We couldn't resist trying their steamed buns:

After I ate, I felt like I finished a home cooked meal, which is a rare feeling for me when eating at any restaurant.  Keep in mind this …
