It was the end of a busy week. After a rollercoaster of emotions from debating car repairs or buying a new car, we were given a year's reprieve when my boyfriend's car passed inspection. Now we'll have more time to fully research different car options and make a better decision for our lifestyle, which is a huge relief. We were driving home from work when we decided to have dinner at a different place, Full Kee Restaurant in Falls Church.
Even though the temperatures outside were pretty warm, we ordered two soups because they looked delicious. Crab and asparagus soup for two ($14.95)
Congee with preserved egg and roast pork ($6.25)
My boyfriend loves congee, and he's disappointed when the dim sum restaurants in NoVA and MD do not offer any. It had a very nice flavor and was a very comforting food.
Panfried pork dumplings ($3.50)
Good flavor and the dumpling wrappers had a nice chew.
Spicy fried head-on shrimp ($14.95).
I always think that I'll like this dish more than I actually do.
Half Roast Duck ($16.95)
Served very differently than at PGI, this was chunks of duck with bones. Great flavor but a bit fatty.
It was nice to see large Asian families gathered at the restaurant sharing a meal together. We ordered a lot of food, and should have included a vegetable dish instead of the shrimp. Using prudence, we had the leftovers packed up for breakfast where I included a dish of Korean squash. The decor is nice and bright, and the space felt less cramped than Peking Gourmet Inn. Full Kee is a Cantonese place at heart and I would skip the Hunan specials or regular Chinese-American dishes and venture towards the duck or any of the seafood specials.
