Chung King - SGV

Went to Chung King yesterday for lunch. As I was alone, and far from home, I could only order what I could eat myself and not take leftovers.

I ordered the #50 from the menu: minced pork with red and green peppers. It was terrific. Very hot in a way that I though might hurt me about ten or so hours later (but it didn't).

This is a very small place, and there were two tables of eight that had pre-ordered a wonderfully lavish retirement luncheon for some governmental employees. OMG, did that stuff look good! I wish I could have been a part of that.

What I did notice, however, is that there is a sort of cold or steam table (not sure which) at the back of the restaurnt where a Chinese fellow came in and ordered a plate from. He had a relatively small serving and I did not see whether he went back for more before I left.

Bottom line,it's tough to eat well at a place like this when you're alone and can't take home left overs. Does anyone have info about that serving area in the back of the restaurant and how it works? And, btw, anything else that should be ordered, whether alone or not?
