Brief trip report: Nan Zhou / Farmer's Cabinet / Koo Zee Doo
Well, the Flyers sucked. Bummer.
Thankfully, we ate well. Nan Zhou for lunch on Friday, where we split 2 orders of the stir-fried noodles with roast pork between the 4 of us, and an order of fried chicken-curry-coconut dumplings (odd mix for Chinese, but whatevs). Lovely. Would go back again.
Farmer's Cabinet for pre-dinner cocktails -- also very nice, and a highly appealing menu. Honestly, if we hadn't had a rez at KZD, I would've been perfectly happy with eating here.
At KZD, we decided to go a la carte: appetizers were octopus gravy (great), seafood salad with spicy dressing (lovely), and a special of grilled quail (2 of them, which was perfect for 4), mains were the monkfish and the duck rice, which were also really delish.
The best part? $50/person including tip -- as opposed to $50 a pop for the tasting menu *plus* tip. Nice.
Stopped in at Chris' Jazz Cafe -- a bit of a tradition for us now -- and dumped some more money on martinis.
Di Bruno's to grab a sammich for the road & sausages, cheese & walnut mustard to take home.
Love me some Philly time...
