Frogs, jelly fish, snails, and more!


Recently, I was invited to a taping of Deco Drive at Hop Won Dinner Club and Skinny Bar in Southwest Ranches.  I figured I’d get to indulge in a lovely, traditional Chinese meal and occasionally smile for the cameras.  So, I donned my glad rags and headed on over.  It proved to be quite an eventful evening and I’m SO glad that I went.

First of all, ANYTIME that I run into local fashion designer, Kesi Case, unexpectedly, I’m happy as a clam.  That’s right–Kesi and her hubby were already seated when I got there.  AND, there just happened to be an empty chair next to Kesi.  If you have not checked out Kesi’s creations–you just might want to.  As I got settled in, I was introduced to the restaurant’s owner, a lovely woman named Gigi Stetler.  What an inspiring story of entrepreneurship she has!  More on that later.

The restaurant has chalk walls, traditional tables, and even some lounge seating.

Shortly after I arrived, Deco Drive got there and the taping began.  Gigi started bringing out menu items.  THIS is where it got interesting.  Here’s a sampling of what I had:

  • Jelly Fish Cold Salad
  • Fried Pork Intestine
  • Scallops with Black Pepper
  • Snails with White Sauce
  • Braised Frog Casserole
  • Steamed Crab with Sticky Rice

Being the foodie that I am, I tried EVERY.SINGLE.THING.  I actually loved the frog casserole and the snail.  The jelly fish wasn’t bad either.  The presentation of everything was EXCELLENT!  The tables are fitted with lazy susans, making it easy to serve yourself.  It was all accompanied by sake and skinny cocktails.  I had a FAB time.  As soon as I get word on when it airs, I’ll let you know!  In the meantime, visit Hop Won!
