Golden Palace Farewell Luncheon

Farewell luncheon at Golden Palace Restaurant in Stockton, CA March 23, 2014.
The restaurant owner's are retiring on March 31, 2014 and the restaurant will be closed forever.

Kenny and Patti getting ready to enter the restaurant

Here is the owner.
It is a small place with a maximum occupancy of 70.

Kenny, Patti, Elsa, Joe and Grandma discussing world events.

Actually Patti is asking Elsa about shopping tips.

More discussion

We over ordered to have leftovers to take home.
Mustard greens with tofu and mushrooms
Bitter melon with spareribs in black bean sauce
Steamed sole over tofu
Claypot oxtails
Kung pao chicken
Gai lan and lop chong with oyster sauce
Braised eggplant with shrimp
Steamed chicken with ginger and green onions
Mustard greens with tofu and mushrooms and bittermelon with spareribs

That was the steamed sole

This is the steamed chicken and the owner threw in a couple of pieces of roast duck

It is a lot quieter when the food is on the table

Too bad that another nice little family run restaurant is closing its doors for good.
It was within walking distance from where I worked.  So in those years between 1974 and 1999 I used to eat here at least once a week.  First when it was owned and operated by Jack Lee then since 1989 by the present owner.  In the past 15 years however I would eat here barely once a month.
