I recently made a trip back to South Tahoe and was excited to eat at my favorite Chinese restaurant but I was very disappointed to find out that the restaurant (restaurant name included) was sold in March of 2006 to another Chinese couple.
I used to be a South Tahoe local and often frequented Sesame when it was owned by a gracious Chinese couple (the husband was the cook and the wife took care of the front). The food was incredible and the service was quite pleasant! For a small restaurant that catered to people on the go, I was very surprised by the freshness and taste of their dishes. While I had many favorites, I was in love with their sesame chicken. Just perfectly sweet, golden and crispy! This place was very popular with the locals and got quite busy during the holiday tourist season.
The food now is pretty average. Even though the restaurant interior hasn't changed much, it lacks the charm that it once used to have. I wonder where the original owners decided to open up their new business.
