Lunch specials hit on the usual selection of beef, pork, chicken and shrimp dishes offered with an egg roll, choice between 2 soups and fried or steamed rice. Nothing out of the ordinary there. The regular menu looked extensive though, with some interesting and unusual selections.
The prices are certainly reasonable and the portions maybe just a bit less than comparable Asian restaurant lunch specials. I will start out by saying that I liked the Mongolian beef that I had, but you had better like onions as the dish was served with an overwhelming amount of them in proportion to the meat. Rather the way I like to eat liver though (which rarely happens, pate notwithstanding); 2 lbs of onions to 2 ozs liver! I also liked the egg roll . . . what there was of it. It would take at least three of them to make up one typically served. The shrimp and veggie dish suffered from the same treatment as the Mongolian Beef with a higher than normal ratio of carrots, snow peas and mushrooms to the amount of shrimp. I know that the veggie to meat proportion is high in the country of this food's origin, it's just that it did not quite measure up again to comparable Chinese food restaurants in San Antonio. And finally the fried rice was edible but a little gummy and lackluster. Pass the soy sauce please . . .
Absolutely nothing inedible about the food here overall. In fact, I cleaned my plate; given, I was hungry as I had had no breakfast. I just could not find anything special or worth a repeat visit for the items we had. The difference must be outside the lunch menu for those that deliver high accolades for this place. I wouldn't mind trying the place again, but not for the lunch specials. Much better renditions to be had for the same price elsewhere. It would also definitely be a hard sell to get my wife to return as her assessment of lunch was much less glowing than mine. And as the aphorism in my fortune cookie today stated, "Happy Wife, Happy Life!"
