    Some starters:

    Behold!  Venison puffs (were 3, one escaped!).  DA BOMB as the kids might say.

    Spring rolls.  Meh.

    Salt n Pepper Squid. Ma ma hou hou (so so).
    The mains:
    Gai lan with sailfish.  YUM. Umami.

    Half a roast duck.  Glistening.  Beautiful anise flavour.

    STAR OF THE SHOW!  Slow cooked beef short rib.
    Now I know what I want  on my last meal list.  Righteously unctuous and damn fine.
    What no Huy Fong? Thai brand Sriraja Panich make an appearance at every table.
    Not Huy Fong but pretty good :)

    Beautiful ceiling tiles
    Me and my best pal.  Very happy.

    Tomoe photos coming soon...
