The original plan for tonight was not supposed to be Mr. Wong's. We had been planning on going to NOM (Not Only Meatballs) as there had been a Facebook event advertising all you can eat Italian food (pizza, pasta, meatballs) plus two glasses of wine for less than $9 USD. I had class until 6:20pm, so we all met at the Central MTR station after my class and then walked about fifteen minutes to the restaurant. Unfortunately, by the time we got there NOM was full and not accepting any more people. There was a big group of people that were already waiting outside, and more coming while we were leaving all turned away.
I was sad because I was hoping for some nice Italian food!! However tonight was the first night of the promotion, so I should have known it would've been packed. Anyways, I will try again on another Wednesday after the excitement and newness calms down.
We decided to just go to Mr. Wongs because we were already half way there and just had to jump on another MTR line from Central. Pictured above you can see my dinner, as that was the only dish served without any meat. However I really enjoyed the broccoli, peanuts, sauce and rice mix, so I didn't mind. We were also able to get iced tea with lemons, one of the most popular drinks here (and one of my favorites!).
One more day of classes tomorrow, then the weekend! The countdown to reading week has officially begun - I will be leaving two weeks from tomorrow!
