We ventured up to PGI on a whim without a reservation. Arriving around 7:20, the expected wait was 30 minutes, so we put our name on the list and went to wander around the Asian-Hispanic market next door. The entrance to PGI is very narrow with clusters of families and groups were stuffed into the front desk area like a Tokyo subway train. Tons of birthdays were being celebrated throughout the night, and the waiters were in a constant state of motion.
Cup of hot and sour soup.
Cup of egg drop soup.
Leek and pork dumpling.
"Chinese taco" aka Peking duck with scallions, cucumber and sauce on pancake.
Special seafood pan-fried noodles.
Jumbo shrimp, scallops, snow crab, gailan, snow peas and shiitake mushrooms with long noodles the waiter cuts with spoons. This was a massive amount of food, so we brought home a large bag of leftovers.
