The new group dining credo: Eat well, pay less!

Have a rather large group you need to get together with, but don't want to cook and would rather go out? Oh, and hopefully not spend a lot but still eat well? Not as hard as you would think as the pictures below will attest. May I suggest heading east. Far east. China east. That's what we did in Houston with w's parents, her sis and bro-in-law, uncle, aunt, and cousin at Lucky Dragon 2....or was it 3? Doesn't matter, because the Chinese banquet at this place, and possibly a place near you, was pretty freaking satisfying. At about ten or twelve bucks a head.....for maybe ten courses!! How satisfying? This satisfying......
Pekin Duck. Take one of those steamed bun-ish things, slather a little hoisin sauce and a few pieces of onion inside with some ducky bits. Voila! Duck sando supreme!
Steamed clams in a soy-hoisin sauce. Fabulous!
Stir fried beef with gai lan. I loved this!
Crispy fried pepper shrimp. Eat 'em head and all, no peeling required!
Lobster too!! Did I mention this was about ten bucks a person?!
Steamed bass. The craziness continues.....
"Birds nest" with stir fried scallops, shrimp, veggies. Plus there was noodles, two different soups, rice. It was incredible. Thanks Mr. and Mrs. C!

Ack! This looks too good to be believed...especially for that price! Let us know when you're ready for more and we'll be there.
