Grandpa’s Birthday Dinner


For my Grandpa’s birthday, the whole family went to a restaurant to celebrate. We always rotate between the numerous Asian restaurants that are close by. As well, the same dishes are ordered. When you have over 30 people in your family, it gets very boring.

The restaurant we went to is called Congee Dynasty. It may have “congee” in its name but there’s more than just congee. It’s your typical Chinese restaurant but they also have Thai food.

Anyway, for my Grandpa’s birthday, we ordered from a big menu option. This menu has a variety of dishes in each option. Below are the dishes from the option selected. I don’t  know the correct dish name but I’ll describe what is in each to the best of my abilities (Sometimes I just know the Chinese name or I don’t even know what it is but I just eat it).

Birthday cakes for my Grandpa. One I think was coffee flavoured and the other was a chestnut cake.

I don't like olives—leaf me alone! 🥬
⠀
Salads don't really fill up my stomach, so I rarely order them as my main entrée. However, when I am looking for something light, I'll order one.
⠀
When I took @xstephanieeee and @alavia to @3brasseursca before one of the Duke Canada basketball games, I got this pasta salad. I forgot the name of this dish but it's on the lunch menu. I'm not a fan of olives and I knew they'd be in this salad, but I figured it'd be just a few olives. Boy, was I wrong! This was like an olive dump!
⠀
If you don't like olives, I'd highly avoid this particular pasta salad.

Call me irrational for posting a non-pi(e) photo on Pi Day.

Throwback to last July at the Burlington Food Truck festival. Since they were featured on 'You Gotta Eat Here!', I tried the Pulled Pork Beanasaurus from Sul Irmaos Smokehouse.
⠀
As you can tell, it's a sandwich with mess written all over it. It was stacked with pulled pork, chili, coleslaw, and fried mac and cheese bites. Taste-wise, it was okay. The fried mac and cheese bites placed on top didn't elevate the sandwich as I hoped it would. It didn't provide the cheesiness I wanted it to.
