We started with pot stickers and they were very good. Nice and spicy pork filling and enough of a pan frying so the dough was cooked without becoming tough.
With the aforementioned delicious Sesame Chicken, we also had Garlic Prawns. Very good flavor, although far too many vegetables for my taste.
On Saturday, we took a bigger group to a more upscale Chinese restaurant in Castro Valley. Silver Spoon Gourmet has a very friendly owner, Simon, who sings on Thursdays. It not being Thursday, we just had a nice conversation with him.
We again started with pot stickers, although these were a shade more gelatinous than I prefer. The filling and accompany sauce were both delicious.
I ordered the General Tsou's chicken. I know that it is not particularly authentic Chinese dish but I just love the slightly sweet, spicy flavor of the sauce over the deep fried chicken pieces.
Stu stuck with his favorite of chicken with vegetables that had a nice garlic sauce but far too many healthy things on the plate.
