Koko's is gone, so is that horrible Chinese buffet

Das Ubergeek | Aug 19, 200504:00 PM

So this afternoon I thought, "I haven't been to Koko's Middle Eastern Cuisine in a month of Sundays." I walked down to Woodman and Vanowen, and... OH NO! IT'S GONE!

The sign's gone, the tables are gone, everything's just gone.

So I walked back home, and went to go get in the car to go to BBQ Unlimited for some terrific Cantonese food and maybe a jin dui.

When I parked on Sherman Way, I noticed that the "New China Buffet" is gone and it's going to become "Cha Chaa", a new Thai/Chinese place. Given the calibre of the Thai restaurants on Sherman Way, they have their work cut out for them -- they can all do Thai Small Plates Deathmatch. I'll have to try it, of course -- but anything at all would be better than that buffet. It was so bad that even the friends from North Dakota who asked to go there [not that there's anything wrong with North Dakota, but it's not exactly a hotbed of authentic Chinese cuisine] couldn't deal with it.
