Recent postings about Ba Ren in San Diego have mentioned two menus, one plastic and one paper. I have the impression that the plastic menu is relatively uninteresting, while the paper has the restaurant's specials. I also have the impression that non-Asians are given the plastic menu as a matter of course, while they have to actively request the paper menu.
Two questions: Is this summary correct? Is the paper menu written only in Chinese, or are there English descriptions as well?
