First, a large group met at a Chinese restaurant near GNU called Shanghai. I had never been before, but the food was really good. There were about 30ish people there and we ordered family style by small table. Our table ordered sweet and sour pork, dim sum, and some chicken dish with mushrooms. The waiters were a bit overwhelmed by all of us and ended bringing random dishes to random tables. Considering the occasionally had to step over people to serve stuff, I think the did a remarkable job.

It also led to us getting to try about 3 or 4 dishes that weren't ours. Our food was really good. I also tried a chicken dish that was mega spicy and another chicken dish that had an uncanny similarity to apple pie - dessert chicken! I also ate 2 kumquats, which I had never tried before. You eat the skin too (which is sweet) and the inside (which is a bit sour). Now I will buy them.
