lam's garden

Met up with Nate again at his favorite Chinese place, Lam's Garden in Kahala.

We ordered Crispy Gau Gee, Minute Chicken with Cake Noodle (Nate's grand-daughter's favorite), Fried Rice and Clams with Black Bean Sauce.

The food was delicious and came out really fast! Their portions are very generous too.

I even got to catch them making their dumplings.

Nate gave me some cilantro seed to plant, I hope it will grow! And after he lunch showed me where he lives (nearby Lam's).

He said that his daughter would be mad if he posted a photo of his house on his blog, so he asked me to post it for him on mine. (shh! don't tell her!)

He also said he built the top addition to his house himself 20 years ago. I also got to see his dog, Nezumi, so cute!

Thanks for lunch and the seeds Nate!

So nice to see you, too bad Satoshi had already left. He would have finished all the food!

Hope you have a good trip back to Japan, and that it cools off.

K and S said...

Thanks Dennis, food was really good.

I know, Satoshi was bummed Nate, if you come to Osaka, let us know. Heard Kyoto got to 104F!

Take care you two.

How cool! Didn't know you're in Hawaii recently. My family place for minute chicken & cake noodle is this place called Wong Kwok Home Town Noodle House in Chinatown. I will have to give Lam's Garden a try. Looks delicious!
