My husband and I came to Wilmington to get away for a few days and to visit family. They are "foodies" and know all there is to know about the restaurants around town. They were going to suggest something a bit more touristy, seeing how we have never been here but that would have taken us to downtown and crowds. They have been here many times and the owner even knew them when they came in. The owner (I believe) also served us and you can tell she really loves what she does. She wanted to help us decide what dish we would like. She described dishes and flavors for almost every dish. (There were 7 of us, so she had her work cut out for her!). The first thing I noticed was the beautiful presentation. My General Tso was colorful (orange slices all around!). We had spent so much time discussing flavors and traditions that by the time we were about done with our dinner, she brought out a shrimp dish as a sample for us to try, just because she wanted everyone to know it's flavor. I didn't have any but that's because I don't eat seafood but everyone said they loved it. Even though we were full, most of us ordered dessert. We had a hard time deciding and she did her best to describe the red bean and the lychee ice cream but I guess none of use were brave enough. So our table ordered coconut cake, chocolate cake and green tea ice cream. Those of us that ordered, LOVED our desserts. But she brought out the samples of red bean and the lychee and they were wonderful! Not only is the food fantastic but the service was even better. I even learned something. In China, it's customary to compliment someone not just on the food but the presentation and the smell also. Which were all wonderful.
