This duck salad is beyond amazing. WOW.

Little Tokyo & Saigon
2800 Lafayette Road, Portsmouth
This was serendipity to the power of 2.
I knew that the ‘Downton Abbey’ movie we were going to see last night, at ‘Cinemagic‘, Portsmouth, was not going to finish till after 9pm. That meant that “Warren’s Lobster House“, our favored place for dining in Portsmouth for the last couple of years, was going to be closed. And not just them. Most of the restaurants in Portsmouth would also be closed. We know this. We have been in this boat before.
So, I did some Google researching before we left. This place was close, open till 10:30 and had an interesting menu. I definitely wanted to try the ‘Duck Salad’ if nothing else.
We got to the ‘Cinemagic’ 10-minutes ahead of schedule. So, I went and checked this place out before the movie. It is in a small mall, tucked in. You need to be looking for it. Now that I knew where it was, we got there, without issue, straight after the movie.
It is different inside. Green, bright, interesting lighting and just cozy and welcoming. Smelt divine.
What a place. Mainly ‘rich’ Asians. Great atmosphere. I loved it. My kind of place.
The Food. The Food.
What can I say other than it was way, way, way beyond expectations. Huge portions too. Given that it was late and there were two of us on strict diets I didn’t order much. even so we had three large containers of takeaway though we ate like there was no tomorrow.
The ‘Duck Salad’ was something else. It was so, so, so good. Teischan, no doubt the pickiest, fussiest and most critical eater in the whole world, tasted it — because I was raving about it — and liked it. Enough said. You can’t get higher praise than that.
Lovely service. Very friendly.
There was nothing one could find fault with. Good prices too.
Oh, they have fried ice cream.
We are going back. I will go back, though it is 1-hour away, just to eat there.
Highly, highly recommended.
Smile. I blew my diet. I think I gained 6 pounds!
