The night after he arrived from the Philippines three weeks ago, he took me out to dinner. We couldn't stop talking and there was so much to say! We went to Dave Wong's Restaurant, a lovely Chinese place in Stockton. It is a gorgeous restaurant, oozing comfy yet upscale ambiance. The lighting is dim and golden, which makes for a romantic setting. They also have curtained booths for privacy; Andrew had put our names down for us to get one. After a while, one of the nice men working there put us into a private room! :) We were very lucky!
It was a cold night and I was feeling like soup, so we ordered their Wah Won Ton Soup. Many goodies were in it, such as chikcen, bok choy, won tons, and shrimp. The won tons were pretty tasty as was the bok choy. It wasn't anything special, but it was a nice start to our meal.

Now this dish, my friends, is AMAZING. This is Egg Foo Yung with pork and I loooooove it! It's like a big fried omelette with bean sprouts, pork, and other things swimming in a tasty gravy. We always order it and it's very tasty. The texture is crispy and crunchy, and very satisfying. One might be put off by the bean sprouts, but they soak up the flavors of the pork, gravy, and egg. I am still dreaming of it!
This was the steak and mushroom fried rice, which was delicious, especially when mixed with the egg foo yung! The steak was tender and rich, and the mushrooms complemented everything so well. It was an interesting idea for fried rice, and since we love steak and mushrooms, it worked for us! :)
It was an inexpensive meal for two, considering all that we ate! We finished everything; it was all so good! However, the servings might be small for larger parties, so be prepared to order more dishes. Having the private room felt so cozy and nice~ It was a very special evening for us and I won't ever forget it! I can't wait to go back to Stockton and have those kinds of adventures with him again!
