i finally made it to China Islamic (corner of garvey & del mar?) for lunch today. it was awesome! my wife and i just stopped in for a quick bite - we tried the lamb sa-cha and fish in spicy sauce. outstanding!
and i didn't forget to order the sesame bread with green onions - another hit. we got the medium, and had enough to take home with the leftovers.
i still have not had the chance to try Tung Lai Shun, although i have walked by the place. the interior of China Islamic leaves a bit to be desired, but it's all about the food, right?
