Chinese New Year Dinner - Part Deux?

After a real fun Chinese New Year dinner with the wife, my homeboy Sekino rang me up for an impromptu Chinese New Year extravaganza.

Here's a list of what we ate from one of my fave Chinatown restaurants - Oriental Garden. Way too much food, but pretty damn delicious. Thanks again Sekino!

Standouts included the huge juicy oyster that kicked ars with the black bean sauce. And, the surprisingly delicious duck lettuce wraps - loved the bits of skin, fat, and meat combined together. And no, this is nothing like the crap they serve at PF Chang's.
