Linguafood and buttertart and a weekend in Philadelphia...

Our husbands were at conferences, so some of this is joint and some not.
The first night we ate at Sang Kee Peking Duck House, on the recommendation of my Singaporean hairdresser, who drives down from NJ to eat there. The duck was very good.
The next day we had lunch at Rangoon, and particularly the tea leaf salad.
That evening we had a tasting menu (together) at Marigold Café. The chestnut raviolo was my favorite. The cooking was inventive and fun, but I'll let Lingua give the whole rundown here. Beaucoup BYO wine was happily put away.
The next day, lunch was Xi'an food at Sizzling Woks -- particularly enjoyed the liang pi, I had a dark chocolate and a pistachio ice cream at Bassett's on my way back to the hotel, and dinner was together at the Brauhaus. Very good German food and what a freaking beer list! (Meine Deutsche Freundin...details are yours...).
Sunday, lunch at the Khmer Kitchen was the highlight for us -- chicken salad, grilled steak, quail, tart shrimp soup...could we have a Cambodian place here, PLEASE? Pics are from that meal. Un régal.

I was just thinking fondly of a Bakewell Tart I had at Hibiscus in London a few years ago. Very nice dessert.
