Chinese: Modern @next

oh wow!!!!

OK it isn't exactly Chinese food but it is what Chinese food could aspire to....



when we entered we were seated at a table with a red top and a green centerpiece that looked like a cucumber in a tall vase with cilantro and some other greens stuffed into it-


our napkins held the paper with the following message on it-



since I caught on too late about the centerpiece being our first course I have to show a blurry photo of one across the room- LOL


closer up so you know what I am talking about- the cylinder in front of the woman drinking - became - with the help of a french press- our first course of soup -




turns out that is Chinese okra- and here is the beginning of the menu-







the above dish with pork floss (whatever that is - it tasted superb!) and the meat and seafood dumplings was fabulous!!!!

on to the second grouping on the menu-








the above in the paper bag (squab) could be the winner of the evening - or so it seemed so far...


but the hits just kept on coming-










you can see the duck was perfectly prepared!


BUT WAIT THERE'S MORE!



below-  dip the sweetbreads into the passion fruit sauce and they harden into candy - amazing!




 the one bad note of the evening - this sickening milky drink made of tofu- YUCK! but back to another fab dessert!



and of course end up with fortune cookies - here - enormous fortune cookies!



and bubble tea...


possibly the best NEXT meal we have had- some real stunners and only the one icky drink- fun servers excellent and professional but friendly and relaxed---


an all around winner!!!!
