Delightful Lunch In Chinatown: Charles Plaza

Bashful3 | May 19, 2005 01:53 PM

Met a friend for lunch, corner of 10th and Vine, on the edge of Chinatown (parking nearby).

The atmosphere is lovely, with pink tableclothes, flowers, nice china. Not crowded; quiet, attentive service.

Hot and sour soup was unusual--lighter colored, very carrotty, other good things in it--not too sour, not too hot. Just right.

Mixed seafood, tofu and vegetables was a winner. Shrimp, scallops, crisp veggies, brown rice. My friend loved her chicken dish with string beans, cashews and other nice veggies.

Large portions: $5.95 for platter and soup. Even the spring rolls that we shared ($2.50) were way above the usual in quality and crispness.

This would be a good place to arrange a lunch or dinner for a large group.
