Brother Monkey and I met Mama Monkey and her hubby for dinner last night at our usual halfway point of Rowland Heights.
Capital Seafood Restaurant (1015 Nogales Street, Rowland Heights) is one of the better restaurants at the 99 Ranch plaza.
But the Cantonese food is reliable and fast. Everything we had was quite tasty and ranged from $8.00 to $13.00, save the crab, which was market price.
Jie lan with oyster sauce. Fresh and delicious.
Beef and assorted vegetables over fried noodles. Very good. You can't see the noodles here, but they were golden and great -- partially crunchy, partially soft.
Fried fish. Not sure what kind. Does it matter? You know I liked it.
Fried tofu. The outside was lovely, light, and crisp. Always a delight.
Crab! It was in a tank just minutes before we ate it. Yummy for my tummy.
Complimentary hot tapioca dessert. Enjoyable.
After dinner, we went into the 99 Ranch plaza for some boba. Lollicup had run out. What? That's like an ice cream truck running out of ice cream. Bizarre. Our runner-up was Banana Cafe, where one of my old SAT prep students used to work (and would give me free boba).
Gotta love buy one, get one free. The tea could've been sweeter, but the boba were nice and bouncy.
It was fun to see my family. Everyone is doing well!
