The terrible Chinese restaurant at Laguna Mall is gone. In its place is a new Chinese restaurant that someone was raving about last night. She said that while she was there a Chinese woman who was eating there spoke to the owner in Chinese before she left.
Has anyone tried it? I am going Tuesday and will report in afterwards.
Ir is easier to love Mexico than to understand it.

Let's hope that the woman who was speaking Chinese with the owner wasn't saying something like, "These ignorant old foreigners will eat anything, just give them whatever is left over in the refrigerator and call it by a Chinese name."

I will be eager to read your report, Shira.

I've always worried it was whatever they found in the ally behind the restaurant!

Decent Chinese food LOOKS colorful and therefore, appetizing. Those trays of gunk at the old place didn't. Here's hoping for an uptick in the offerings. I'd welcome a Chinese lunch option.

If they find really good stuff in the alley, there are seldom any leftovers! Sorry. Enough.

Anyone know of any Vietnamese ? Even in Guad.

Today I decided to do a public service for y'all and try the new Chinese place in the Laguna Mall.
For 55 pesos, you get two dishes and a large pile of semi-fried rice. I had some kind of mushroom chicken and a veggie chicken.
Spouse had the veggie chicken and noodles.
Very salty, greasy, and VERY funky chicken parts, including gristle and even a little bone.
We arrived just after noon, just after opening, so it was as fresh as it was going to be. The veggies were plentiful and crispy. The portions were large.
We won't be back.

It sounds like it was better before. Any time I got take away there it was good.

Yikes, when parts are really parts. Yuck. I'll go try veggie or shrimp dishes. Thanks for letting us know, Gringal.

You know, long, squiggly pieces with bits of gristle......those parts. lol.
The veggies were plentiful and not over-oniony. Snow peas, cauliflower, carrots, and so on. It had the chicken in it, also.
My objection was the overly salty and greasiness of the food. And personally, I'd be a bit wary of shrimp dishes in a place that's not busy, but it may be okay.

Nobody flies under the radar on this board...everybody means business... :rolleyes: (but we're pretty nice when you meet us in person)
Some of the most acerbic comments are made by some of the nicest people. A thin skin doesn't wear well in these parts.

Pollyana would probably get a rough ride on this board :unsure:

We are trying to give others on the board the truth so they don't waste their money. Nothing harsh about it.
This Chinese restaurant just doesn't make the cut, but I would have been delighted to have had a good experience to report instead.
