Weekend Reflections: le canard d'or

Reflections on the floor and in a large mirror at le canard d'or ('the golden duck') Chinese restaurant. As they go, this isn't a bad one. Most Chinese restaurants have morphed into not very good Japanese places nowadays because sushi is in and unfortunately it is becoming increasingly difficult to find a decent Chinese place... The orange peel duck was okay! More Weekend Reflections are this way.

Des reflets sur le sol et dans le long miroir du restaurant chinois le canard d'or situé rue des réservoirs. La plupart des restos chinois sont devenus des "sushidromes" très moyens pour suivre la mode et ça devient difficile de bien manger chinois. Ici, le canard aux écorces d'orange était tout à fait correct ! Les Reflets du Weekend, c'est par ici !

Delicious looking. Of course, I've got a soft spot for rice.

Creative reflections, Ciel!

The place looks inviting.

Sylvia K said...

Ah, very inviting indeed -- food and reflections!! I'll take some of each! Have a great weekend, Ciel!

Lois said...

It does look delicious! The floor is pretty too. I hope it is not too slippery though!

Randy said...

Yummy. Looks like a nice place.

Jack said...

Interesting observation about Chinese restaurants morphing into Japanese. I haven't observed that, though I do see some restaurants offering foods from several different countries.

Bob Crowe said...

Ah, a Chinese place. Now I get it. Most allegedly Chinese food here is fried junk (and so becoming quintessentially American).

Sharon Anck said...

This looks like a classy place. I've noticed that a lot of Asian restaurants these days offer dishes from several Asian countries.

Stuart said...

Looks like a nice, bright place to have a Chinese dinner. And that is some shiny floor !

EG CameraGirl said...

I bet I'd enjoy eating there!

Michelle said...

I would love to eat there!

VP said...

That Chinese into Japanese thing is happening here to, but I have never set foot in any of these places...

Tanya Breese said...

wonderful reflections on the floor. funny about the chinese morphing into japanese because it is the same here...you can get sushi at the chinese restaurant..i thought it was just because they figure people from roanoke don't know any better lol

Very interesting. I like all th chairs in the previous post.
We are at the ranch for a few days. We are actually house sitting but we will be hiking and looking at stuff. We have to feed the dogs and cats but best of all we have a bottle baby (calf) to feed and play with. MB

what a great shiny floor!

Lew said...

The duck may not be the best, but the floor shine is! Restaurants here are also trying to be "trendy" and forget what made them good.

Looove the reflections Ciel, not sure about the 'just ok duck' :) We have a Chinese restaurant at our local shops that people come miles for, its not posh or anything.. just excellent food.

Une enseigne de restauration asiatique, quel endroit parfait pour trouver de magnifique reflets... J'espère que la nourriture est aussi bonne que le decor brille, ma chère...

Bon appétit !

Lovely reflections in both floor and mirror. Really good Chinese restaurants are rare and to be treasured. Not noticed the morphing into Japanese sushi restaurants in the Midwest, but trends are slow to arrive here. We do have a new sushi place in town, but it only serves Japanese food.

Bergson said...

un sol laqué, je suppose ?

RedPat said...

We have a huge population of Chinese immigrants here so it is very easy to find real, excellent, Chinese food.

Karl Demetz said...

Looks like a comfortable place, with also a creative reflection :)

Margaret Adamson said...

Looks like a great place to eat and well spotted that reflection on the floor. Hope you have a great weekend.

Ruth Kelly said...

The shine on that floor is amazing and looks so clean. I would love to eat there.

James said...

I'd love to taste the food but only after taking some reflection photos. Nice one ciel!
