Boba in Thousand Oaks (and Szechuan food!?)

cant talk...eating | Aug 31, 201209:39 PM     17

I was amazed to see both at a truly unremarkable steam-tray Chinese place deep in Thousand Oaks:

Han's Chinese Express
1032 E. Avenida De Los Arboles
91360

Avenida DLA is an exit off the 23; head west for a couple blocks to a sad strip mall (for locals - this is next to Manny's).

So as I was reeling from the shock of seeing "Boba Milk Tea" and being temporarily transported if for a sunbaked moment back to SGV, I saw a bunch of Chinese characters on the same sign, next to prices and, yes, the tell-tale red chili peppers of Szechuan menus. Turns out they have about 5 such dishes on offer, the standards like spicy fried chicken, boiled fish, something with picked peppers. I swear the lunch special said "$4.99" but I don't know if any of these were on it.

This was for you, Liu, go forth - go forth and - drink!!
