More on La'zeez (Mason/Turk/Market)

Gary Soup | May 2, 200307:40 PM     1

I spotted this new place a week ago, and today wandered by at lunchtime to see if it was open and picked up a menu for our office stash. It's called "La'zeez Asian Fusion Restaurant and Bar." Someone said "La'zeez" meant "delicious" in Urdu, and I guess that's true because it also had the Chinese characters for "hao chi" on the awning and on the menu.

It's an attractive room, with an open kitchen. The menu identifies various dishes as being Chinese, Indian, Tibetan, Thai, Singaporean, Indonesian, Malaysian, and even Japanese. (Tempura was the only Japanese dish, and Momo the only Tibetan dish). There appear to be no pork or beef dishes on the menu, but plenty of chicken, lamb, veggie and seafood dishes. Prices are moderate, with most of the mains in the mid-teens.

The few tables which were full today appeared to occupied by a large contingent of (Chinese?) businessmen. Judging from the mix of cuisines, I'm guessing it's the kind of place one might find in Singapore.

I'm not very familiar with some of the cuisines represented, but the menu looked intriguing, and hopefully we'll come up with an office function to give us an excuse for going there (it being a little too pricey for a workaday lunch).

La'zeez is on the Waiter-on-Wheels list, but WOW doesn't have the menu posted yet.
