Anna's comment: If you are not a spicy fan, this Sichuan set dinner could be scary. They are all very hot and spicy. Our tongues were paralyzed. Even the vegetable was stir fired with red pepper. The only non spicy dish was my favourite smoked duck. And of course the fruits and dessert at the end was completely admired as they gave us a cool feeling in the mouth.

- Spicy chicken
- Fish in water
- Stir fried Panopea abrupta
- Smoked duck
- Mapo Tofu
- Stir fried vegetable
- Fruit platter
- Almond tea

This is the authentic Mapo Tofu, from Tanyoto's Sichuan chef
We all voted that this was the hottest dish of the night

My Favourite Dim Sum

Today at Banyan Gardin in the Wesley Hotel, I found a new dish which looked very beautiful and delicious - seafood tart. My favourite stuffed eggplant became dual with stuffed chilli, however still very yummy.

I Gained Back My Good Deals

In last Sunday's lunch and dinner, I got some good deals to erase my nightmare memories from the five-star hotel.

The crab's arm at dim sum lunch was very delicious, crispy and I had my thumbs up.

After watching the IMAX Dark Knight, we went on a shark fin set dinner which included chicken, fish plus one additinal dish of our choice and each of us had a bowl of shark fin soup. The set cost only HK$98 (US$12.6) per person + 10% service fee. Quite a good deal !
