You may remember last year when I went to Hop Kee with a bunch of friends to celebrate Lunar New Year. Well, this year, we decided to plan a little better, and go to one of my tried-and-true places – High Pearl a few days before Lunar New Year eve (when it would be super busy). (This is why I was happy Snorlax chose a different place for his birthday dinner – otherwise, I would have been here twice in 3 days, which isn’t a bad thing, but I thought I’d be repeating a lot of the same dishes.) As you can see by Hungry’s post on this meal that goes through it dish by dish, there were more mediocre dishes than otherwise. Here I shrug and say – I know what dishes I like and are good here, and I didn’t choose to insist on not ordering the dishes I didn’t think would be good. I’m not upset about what we ate, but I didn’t feel that our meal showcased all that I love about China Pearl (fka High Pearl). No big deal – I still enjoyed the meal with friends!
