Travels with a Gourmet

a food lover's travels, memorable meals, culinary trials and gastronomic experiences

In every country we’ve lived, we always look out for a neighborhood restaurant which becomes our weekly takeaway place.  In Santiago, it was roast chicken; in Montreal, it was bagels: in Marbella, it was Thai and in Bali, it was Japanese.  Well, we just found our new to-go restaurant in Dorado and it’s Chinese from the Chophouse.
We met Sam and his wife Jess several weeks ago when we went to our first Puerto Rican dinner at Scott & Ann’s where we found out that they also owned and ran the Chophouse restaurant in the nearby mall.  We have been to dinner there and had takeaway a few times already and the food has been consistently good and the service, friendly.  We have the crispy orange beef, the vegetable Lo-Mein, grilled five-spice squid, pan-fried dumplings, shredded chicken in lettuce cups, sauteed duck with eggplant and stir-fried tofu with vegetables.  The restaurant also has Teppanyaki and sushi which we haven’t tried yet but will do as we’ve heard that it’s also good.  Slowly but surely, we’ll go through their menu till we’ve tried all their specialties.
