We stopped at an old favorite restaurant of mine called "Eat First" (as opposed to last... something I would never consider!) for some authentic chinese food. This place is the best I've found in DC, and the Zagat guide and Yelp reviewers seem to agree.We had a delicious dinner of dumplings, pork with golden mushrooms, and Szechwan beef. Deeelish. No matter how good of a recipe you get for Chinese food, there's no substitute for authentic food cooked in a fire hot wok. So, no recipe from date night, just a snapshot of our partially demolished dinner.
Oh, on a side note - the hubby got a good laugh about probably the most accurate fortune cookie ever, opened by yours truly... he loves it so much that its now taped onto the side of our fridge. For those of you who know how much I hate to be wrong, you'll probably get a kick out of it too. His fortune was some nonsense about being showered with prosperity and success.... of course.
