I was in Tacoma on business and we ended up at Indochine at 1924 Pacific Avenue. The food was indeed delicious, but the serving sizes were huge! I wish our server had told us how significantly we over ordered. It kind of made me mad since I was in a hotel and didn't really have an option to take any leftovers home.

The crunchy tofu app was great. It must have been a pound of tofu. The spring rolls were fresh and the serving size a bit more reasonable. The potstickers were not my favorite-too porky for me, but I think there were at least 10 of them on the plate. (Ah, you start to see the problem. We were all famished and each ordered our own appetizer only to see they were not designed for single person consumption.)

I got the tuna--very nicely prepared and tasty. I didn't try the salmon, but my co-worker enjoyed it. The walnut shrimp was good, too many lycees for my taste and the sauce reminded me of a good Minnesota fruit salad with kind of sweet dressing. The honey walnuts were the best part by far.

The atmosphere is very pleasant, and if the weather had been better a nice after dinner walk would have been very possible.

To all restaurants: if you have huge portions, great. Just let some innocent out-of-town guest have a clue!
