JANUSFILES2 . . . ENTRY #0059 . . . OPEN:
Saturday afternoon, I made it to Lemongrass Cafe in time to order one of the lunch specials -- even though I wouldn't be eating it for a couple of hours. (As they say, it's all a matter of timing.) After Friday night's dinner, I suppose I was wondering how another restaurant's sweet and sour shrimp would be, so that's the lunch special I ordered. I remembered to ask if it had bell peppers in it (it did), and I remembered to ask them to leave them out.
After I left the restaurant, I realized that my stomach was rumbling, and that I really needed to eat something right then and there. so, I decided to go to China 1, and get a small order of pork fried rice.
The fried rice was good. A little more onion than I prefer, but still pretty good. And the fortune from China 1 read as follows:
"Confuscius say: Lovers in triangle not on square."
For some reason, I'm surprised that I haven't seen more fortunes that use that particular format.
A few hours later, when I was ready to eat dinner, I zapped the sweet and sour shrimp in the microwave. It came with plenty of shrimp, but unlike Oriental House, the sauce was in a separate container. I liked that, because I could control the amount of sauce on the shrimp.
I also concluded that it might be Oriental House's sauce that's just a little too sweet for me. Lemongrass Cafe's sauce is still sweet (and not sour enough), but not overwhelmingly sweet.
And here is the fortune I got from Lemongrass Cafe's cookie:
"Arriving at one goal is the starting point to another."
