Let's learn Mandarin!

We will watch, discuss, and practice CCTV's "Growing Up with Chinese".  These are high-quality 15-minute-long video lessons for teaching basic Mandarin Chinese to young people.  My goal is to watch one lesson each week.

Lesson  8:  Having dinner

This meetup is intended for beginners, but everyone is welcome!

As this week's lesson is related to dinnertime, it seemed appropriate to sample the tasty cuisine of the western province of Sichuan (Szechuan):

    Food was arguably better than our usual location. ;-)

      Ha!
      I won't argue it, but everything we ordered was very tasty!

    Herb, thank you for last night. I enjoyed the food and company.
    For dinner locations, have you thought about T&S on N Lamar? They have a separate section they close off in the evenings, we can use that section for our purpose. They are only about 4 miles from Royal Buffet. Or Rice Bowl, they are even closer and the food there is not bad too.
