First, if you have never been to Mr. Wok and you are in the Dallas Metroplex, please go!!! You will be amazed. Call the day before to order your peking duck and take some wine!!!!
Our good friend Emiliano called to ask if we were into a little Mr. Wok. Yes we answered " we are always into a little Mr. Wok" particularly when it is Emiliano who is inviting us. Mr Wok ( if you are not familiar) is a sensational BYOB in Plano which serves an exquisite Peking Duck. Emiliano ( Monchiero) is the Italian specialist Somm with the national import portfolio Kobrand. The combination of food and wine at this lunch could only be avoided by the gastronomically impaired. We are many things, but gastronomically impaired is not one. We tasted 9 wines that day, all beautiful. We are featuring two of those today because we believe THIS IS THE MOST BANG FOR THE BUCK!
All of the very best,
