Dinner at East Pearl Restaurant in Rockville, Maryland

Dinner at East Pearl Restaurant in Rockville, Maryland

 

John Wills and Fred Bayersdorfer arrived from Norfolk, Virginia on Tuesday to spend a few days with us. Fred is Chef Dolores' younger brother who recently retired from his teaching position at Old Dominion University. Our guests wanted Chinese food for dinner so we took them to one of the best Chinese restaurants in our area, East Pearl in Rockville, Maryland. The food, as usual, was outstanding.

Love the picture, Roy. I also love Chinese food... and if I miss anything from my NYC days it's really outstanding Chinese food.

Had many Chinese, Japanese, and Hawaiian dinners when I lived in Hawaii...they were always just steps away in Waikiki.  Miss them.
