Wallflower Weekly Finds, 78

My friend Emily, from Emily’s Daily, and I wanted to take a little break from the chaos of work and life. So we decided to indulge ourselves with a fancy-ish meal at M.Y. China, a Martin Yan brand restaurant located at the top of the Westfield San Francisco Centre. What we really wanted to come for was to try their Asian inspired dessert.

In the end, we ordered three entrees and one dessert. As usual, we were a little greedy and ordered more than we should have because we always want to try everything. Picture two girls with a ton of dishes on a table that’s too small to fit everything. That’s almost always how Emily and I eat.

We ordered the Cauliflower and Portobello Mushroom with Hoisin Glaze, the Da Dao “Knife Cut” Fish Noodles with Seafood and Vegetables, and Jasmine Tea Smoked Sea Bass with a Honey Glaze.

I actually have no idea why the noodles were called fish noodles. There wasn’t any fish in the dish that I could see. Every dish was delicious.

And of course, dessert! Lychee Panna Cotta with Chrysanthemum Granita and Mint Essence. I was immediately in love with the flavor.

Now, how do I make this at home?

    It’s been a while since I’ve actually “printed” but your recipes are printed and going into a nice old school cue card container for yummy meals to prepare….funny, at first glance, I thought your blog said cooking with cauliflower…I had a conversation today with my Mom about cauliflower….hence, I challenge the: a yummy way to use cauliflower since it’s in season (the only thing I know to do is steam it and cover it with cheese sauce)…are there other options 🙂 Having fun, Harlon
