Exceptionally kid-friendly service at Mary Chung's

I have become a fan of this place since reading reviews here and wanted to add another accolade of a different type. We were there with my chow-toddler last weekend and had Alice as a waitress. Now, you don't usually think "service" with this type of place. Not that it's been bad, just that they bring you your food and that's it. Well, Alice provided service of the "I know what you and your family need to eat and I'll make sure you get it whether you want it or not"-variety. We tried to order a few things medium-spicy. "No," said Alice. "No spicy- the baby should try too." Dun dun noodles- never considered getting them with sauce on the side. Alice insisted, so that the baby could eat the noodles. Baby loved them. Eggplant dish- asked for a recommendation, told her medium-spicy, was told, "no, she should try that too." Surprisingly, Alice knew best and the baby had her first eggplant. We were permitted to order the suan la chow appetizer, but a non-spiced dumpling in a separate dish also showed up and was promptly consumed by the baby. So, thanks Alice. I would have fed the kid brown rice and the sweet potato chunks we brought. You knew best.
