Last night was my fourth GrubWithUs dinner and my first where I got to dine with the lovely Jana! These dinners are a great way to meet cool new people and also, equally cool, to get to try a wide variety of dishes from a cool new restaurant all at once. Previous GWU meals have included:
And last night I got a chance to go to Yum Yum Hunan, a Chinese restaurant in lower pacific heights on Divisadero. And we had a vegetarian menu! Double score.
Shockingly enough, TWO (!!) of the eight diners did not show up so for the six of us that were there—more for us!
We started with either hot and sour or eggflower soup, veggie spring rolls, and potstickers. The potstickers were awesome! I tend to think egg rolls don’t taste like much besides the awesome neon sauce, but these were good too!
they brought food out so quick it was super overwhelming! all of a sudden our table was just absolutely overflowing with plates and I didn’t really know what to do with it. Anyways.
We had four different entrees:
Salt and Pepper Tofu (all right)
Bok Choy and Mushrooms (good!)
Kung Pao Tofu (really good!)
Eggplant (photo fail)—was really delicious though, highly recommend
Orange Meatless Chicken (!!!) this was what I was by far the most excited for. I love orange chicken. This was absolutely my favorite dish.
Everything was served with either white or brown rice. Dessert was fried bananas and green tea ice cream.
There was great conversation, there were fortune cookies, and there was checking in on Yelp. (One of our diners is a Yelp staffer, another an aspiring Elite!)
I really hope my fortune is accurate.
I would definitely come back to Yum Yum Hunan for some more potstickers and meatless chicken.
new September goals post coming soon. have a great Thursday everyone!
Do fake meats creep you out? Maybe it’s only because I’ve been a vegetarian for less than a year, but I love them
