Wow! I am so full I can hardly breathe — but loving it. It is hard to imagine that the Western Lake can continue to improve its already lofty standards, but it does, every time.
As I lie here, flat on my back and belly straining for the ceiling, my mind reviews the two dozen or so times we’ve been to the Lake this year and I cannot find a fault with their food or service. Yes, you may have to wait a half-hour or more for a table, sometimes in the driving rain; but you know why you are doing it, because the reward is so worthwhile and tangible: the finest tastes, fresh and steaming, served with multiple sauces and a variety of teas; and all at a bewilderingly low price.
One of the joys of the New Year is knowing I can go back another couple of dozen times in 2014 and never be disappointed. Bravo!
