If you can't pronounce the entrée, order it, you just might enjoy it. My dish consisted of a roasted duck leg, lamb sausage, 3 kinds of pork with a white bean sauce.

Had a scrumptious lo mein with beef, shrimp, scallops and vegetables. Absolutely wonderful! Great service. A perfect Bailey's coffee for dessert made this the perfect Valentine's treat before the next snow storm started.
