Pre-Adventure in Fresno

If you ever have a few hours to kill in Fresno, CA, and you're hungry, look no further than the Hunan Restaurant. If it's possible, this is the most nondescript place from the outside - think alcove in a half-abandoned strip mall with only a rug on the ground with the name of the restaurant. (Thanks Yelp-ers!) When I walked in and looked confused, the host/waiter assured me that they were indeed open (I was the only one there, but it was a little after 5pm and my stomach was still on Central Time).

First up were freshly made wontons. While a little greasy, they were delicious.
Then came the peach prawns (sorry, they are slightly out of focus). Oh man, were these good! Crunchy and creamy with the slightest hint of peach. Worth going back for.
If you come at the right time of year, on the right day of the week, you can also check out this really cool sounding place, Forestiere Underground Gardens. Apparently some guy, who had mad skills as a subway digger, carved out acres and acres of earth from the 1920's-1940's to create a dream world of underground Mediterranean gardens. The website looked awesome and it was ranked as one of the top 5 things to do in Fresno, but alas it's not open on Tuesdays in September. If you are ever nearby, you should check it out and let me know what you thought of it.

Hope to see you back on the blog sometime this week - if the camp store really has the wi-fi it's rumored to have. Thanks for checking in and now I'm off to San Jose to collect my dad and we'll be off!
