Dishes when dining with the family

Eating out can be a rather common activity in most urban households these days, with the increasing trend in work commuting and long working hours. Perhaps some even dine out every day that eating in, on the other hand would become the luxury when the family or mother finds time to spend in the kitchen, whipping out dishes for the entire family.
Not in mine; where both my mother and mother-in-law look forward to making a dish or two for us frequently, but there are days when we would just make it easier for them by taking them out for dinner. After all, they deserved that treat once in a while, don't they? Furthermore, they would love to pick up a recipe or an idea or two sometimes when dining out to try it out in their own kitchen thereafter.
There is this particular Chinese restaurant which has been in operation for quite long and has been one of the old favorites for birthdays, gatherings, reunions, weddings, parties due to the reputation and the quality of the food served here. My in-laws liked it here and thus, usually when it comes to an easy option of dining out, Midlands Court Restaurant would come to mind.

All at a posting this makes me really miss these dishes... Image Hosted by PicturePush - Photo Sharing
