While PS was away, we decided we’d revisit the White Cloud Temple to show it to B. While we were in the area, we could see a pagoda we’d spotted in the distance when we visited the White Cloud Temple without B.
First we had to leave church and eat lunch. We chose a place famous for its colorful dumpling restaurant, Bao Yuan Dumpling, near Zaoying subway stop that some friends have talked about. It was yummy, but a bit frustrating. The wait staff ignored us for a long time and the menu was confusing. Once a waitress did check on us, we learned that a pair of dumplings here means 12… very confusing on the menu. They are sold in sets of 6 and you have to buy two sets. But they used the character for a pair which would have been ridiculously overpriced, Y15-Y22 for 2 dumplings. Once we were sure we had enough money to eat (our kids can eat a lot of dumplings!), we ordered. The food was delicious, the overall experience left something to be desired.
Gu Lao Rou
Notice how I can never get a picture of the food before someone has eaten some of it?
