Wordless Wednesday: A Summer Dinner at Gui Lin in Monterey Park

I took these photographs of our meal at Gui Lin in Monterey Park.  As a vegetarian, I was thrilled that they had not one, but two vegetarian soup options!  I've visited Gui Lin on two occasions and tried a different one each time, they were both excellent.  They also had cold cucumbers which were so amazing we finished them too quickly to get them in the picture!  I'd also highly recommend the cold mushrooms.  As you may see from the first picture, my companions were not vegetarian and there was an abundance of options that they highly enjoyed.  The decor was interesting, I posted a pic a while back of a toy yellow VW bug that they had suspended from the ceiling a while back that was indicative of their design concept, but the prices were good and the food and service outstanding.

One thing that they did that I didn't expect was adding peanuts to the soup.  I also didn't expect to like it, but I really did.  It added something nice.  However, if you should chance to eat there and you have a nut allergy, I would let them know not to add any.  They seem to add them to all of the soups, including the non vegetarian options.

They also had an array of delicious sweet drinks, in case you have a sweet tooth, which I definitely do...

Anyway, if you'd like to take a look, I'm having a print giveaway that ends on July 30th, the information is here.

Although I'm clearly more Wordy than Wordless today, I am participating in Wordless Wednesday.  To see more Wordless Wednesday links, please visit:
