Bob Wells Posted July 13, 2006 Share Posted July 13, 2006 After my lunch plans fell through today I decided to finally try this venerable eatery. I walked in around 1:45, the place was deserted. I told the guy I wanted to order some takeout and started perusing the takeout menu. He came over and tried to direct me to the lunch specials. I said "No, I don't want that." Soon he came back over to me and said, "You want to order something else? She [the cook, i guess] can't make anything else now." That leads me to believe they have eight vats, each containing one of the lunch special entrees. Has anyone else ever heard of an asian, or any other kind of, restaurant that serves ONLY its lunch specials during lunch hours? I took a takeout menu but I won't be using it. Sorry Charlie, it's one and done for you. What a bizarre experience. That allowed me to try Taqueria El Poblano: good, but a little pricy for take-out tacos. I'd go back and eat there. I also tried Mother's Macaroons across the street, next to the Secret Safeway. The mocha macaroon was delicious; the orange macaroon didn't have much orange flavor, but was still a good macaroon.
