We went there for lunch on the recommendation of a co-worker. Hunan Home's restaurant is located on El Camino near San Antonio road, on the hill side, close to the famous Chef Chu's restaurant. Unlike Chef Chu's, Hunan Home's restaurant has plenty of available parking and no waiting.
The interior is rather plain looking, and not at all elegant. However the food is very good for Chinese food. In fact many of my Chinese American co-workers prefer it to Chef Chu's.
We ordered from the lunch specials, which come with salad and soup on the side.
The hot and sour soup was full of vegetables and bamboo, thick, and hearty, with enough
vinegar. I actually prefer the soup with bits of pork, but it was fine as is.
The Chinese chicken salad was very unusual in that it did not have much lettuce, but rather more green vegetables, with bits of chicken. Not in the same ball park as Chef Chu's here.
The beef chow fun was a huge dish with thick noodles and good size slabs of tender beef. The high quality of beef is a good indication of a good restaurant
The beef broccoli also had lots of tender beef, with well cooked yet not mushy with a very
green color. They did not overcook the broccoli, as it was still firm and crunchy.
The spicy chicken came with orange peeled: fried, breaded chicken morsels, with orange
flavor. It was a little too spicy and greasy for me. One of my co workers gets this dish to go about twice a week.
We will be back for another lunch here, as it has good value.
I would not go out of my way to eat at Hunan Home's restaurant, as there are plenty of just as good Chinese restaurants in my home town of Sunnyvale, including Tao Tao and Ginger Cafe. And in Palo Alto I prefer Mings's, and in Menlo Park Su Hong's.
