Service is excellent!

We ordered the mixed vegetables, a constellation of crisp
seasonal vegetables glistenng in presentation. It tasted pretty
much the way it would at other locations but with a Guatemalan flare.
Fried rice was beautifully prepared with four ingredients -- pork, beef,
shrimp and egg -- a real protein plate.

Other plates were equally satisfying!!!

Prices are very good too!

North Americans like variety in their food. So if you are one of those and have a hankering for Chinese cuisine, this is a good place to drop into. The only indication that this is a Chinese food restaurant is the lovely black and gold Mandarin screen that sits in the front entrance way and which can be seen clearly from the street. If you look up, immediately from the screen, you'll see a Guatemalan flag depicted under the restaurant sign. All of this makes for a real multicultural start.

Once in the eatery, there's not a hint of anything from the orient. It could be any Guatemalan eatery in a converted colonial house, but for the presence of Estrella herself. There's something supremely graceful about this woman as she moves from table to table. Her small daughters caper about her as she manages tables and the kitchen and she doesn't lose a beat with them or her customers. When she comes to your table you feel you are in the presence of a kind and clear soul.

The food is really good too.

We ordered the mixed vegetables, a constellation of crisp seasonal vegetables done with the time-honored Chinese preference for plenty of corn starch to make the food glisten. It tasted pretty much the way it would at your hometown Chinese place, but with a Guatemalan flavor. Fried rice was competently prepared with four ingredients -- pork, beef, shrimp and egg -- a real protein plate.

This was also very good and the soy sauce provided was easy on the sodium so that it mixed in to enliven but not overshadow the rice dish. Price for two, including a beer for Mr. Y and soft drink for me, rang in at what you might pay for a two small lattes and a pastry at your local hometown over-priced coffee chain outlet.

Hint, hint: Seattle-based corporation.
