Yesterday we were invited to celebrate my Aunt Sylvia's 91st birthday at Mandarin Ogilvie in Ottawa. There were twelve of us for Dim Sum and the lazy susan was doing a lot of spinning with all sorts of things coming off rolling wagons that were whizzing by.
I loved the variety of garlic-infused, steamed fungi.
And I was challenged to eat a squishy, shrimp-stuffed noodle with chopsticks.
I wasn't mad for the order of duck feet that arrived.
Richard liked the flavour and as he said, once you got over the texture, it was pretty good.
There's Aunt Syl almost putting a foot in her mouth!
Duck foot remains on Richard's plate. Yum-o?
Dessert was yummy. I had the mango pudding.
Others had the coconut jello.
And how do you like this for a 182 year combo? Aunt Syl and her sister-in-law Bert, both of whom are 91 and sharp as tacks. After the meal we all took turns telling jokes. Aunt Syl told a few zingers as did Aunt Bert!
