Join fellow alumni for the Restaurant Club's special weekend gathering for June, a dim-sum brunch at A&J Restaurant in Rockville, MD, on Sunday, June 23 at 10:45 a.m.
A&J began serving traditional Taiwanese fare in Taiwan more than 40 years ago and has since expanded to the U.S., now serving Taiwanese along with mainland Chinese dishes, always family operated. Try the spicy beef noodle soup or green scallion pancakes, among the most popular of their menu items. More adventurous eaters can dig in to such dishes as beef tendon noodle soup or sliced pork ears. The rest of us can enjoy the highly recommended smoked chicken, pan-fried pork dumplings, as well as a noodle soup featuring shredded pork and mustard greens. Vegetarians will delight at their options, including highly recommended pickled cabbage, as well as dry bean curd, peanut & cilantro salad, pan-fried vegetarian buns, or daikon pastry.
Please note that the restaurant is cash-only, no credit cards. Also, the restaurant opens at 10 a.m. and lines form quickly; be forewarned of a loud and frenetic atmosphere.
Sunday, June 23, 10:45 a.m.
