Hunan Pearl

Every once in awhile the dudes surprise us.  We went here for lunch and mom and dad were less than impressed, but the dudes loved it!  Lolo loved the egg flower soup and his sweet and sour shrimp.  Aidan loved everything except the egg flower soup, and they both loved the deep fried appetizers.   The staff was wonderful and the service was great, but until Aidan and Lowell are old enough to drive, they won’t be going back. 

   

Oak & Olive

Well, we finally have a new restaurant in Hillsdale.  We got there at 5:00 and by the time we got our first dish it was packed.  VERY kid friendly, wide open layout, and they really love olive oil (the shirts the dudes wore are ruined). It’s busy, full of kids – definitely not the place to go for your romantic dinner, but the dudes loved it and the food was pretty good.  Lolo got the green olive pizza, which was a hit, and Aidan got the smoked salmon ravioli, also a hit.  The Muffaletta was “too spicy” for them, but we picked up the slack.  You order at the counter and then sit, but everything went smoothly.  Overall quite pleased.  The dudes will be back!
