deja vu

I went to dinner last night with coworkers from the San Mateo office of my company, to some unnamed restaurant in San Mateo, and amusingly I found myself walking in the door of Joy Luck Place, the exact same restaurant I ate in the night before only in a different town. On my recommendation we ordered the shrimps in mayo, which were devoured before I got any, which was fine since I was macking down the very excellent sauteed pea pod stems, which were the tenderest I've ever had, and some nice tofu/seafood/roasted garlic clay pot, and a smoked glazed sea bass (also with mayo), and some tasty scallops in hot bean sauce with broccoli, among other things. The seafood and vegetable dishes are better than the meat dishes (which are respectable enough), so I would recommend you focus your order toward the fruits of the sea. Again I forgot my camera; I suck.
