Thursday night views
Duck with pineapple at venerable Cambridge Chinese restaurant Royal East. If there was a sudden brownout, that sauce could power everything within Rte 128. In the blurry background are the remains of beef in coconut-curry sauce and scallion pancakes (scallyunpancakes!).
This is the restaurant we invaded with our entire familial horde the weekend of our wedding; they seem to have forgiven us, but hey, that was ten years ago.
It's also the place where fortune cookies are a little more honest than is absolutely necessary.
Driving home after dinner, we had the rare experience of stopping for a train at the crossing between Beacon Street and Somerville Ave. Everything was wet an' shiny.
