Sunday night Phaedra and I went out with Eva and Anthony to celebrate Anthony & my birthday. We went to a restaurant in Englishtown NJ that has risen from the ashes, Peking Pavilion.
It is an awesome “Chinese Fusion” restaurant that burned down just before New Year 2007, and has returned with a vengeance. I can truthfully say it is some of the best Chinese food I’ve ever had. We started off with Steak Egg rolls, Creamy Spicy Shrimp on Scallion Pancakes, Chicken Corn Soup, & Asparagus & Crab soup. The main meal was Lobster Fried Rice, Basil Beef, Grand Marnier Shrimp, and a Salmon dish I didn’t try. Desert was Apple-Pie for Anthony and Flaming Bananas for the rest of us. Peking Pavilion also has some interesting drinks; we all liked he Lychee Martinis, the Pair-tinie and the Coconut Mojito. A bit expensive, but overall an excellent restaurant.
