Tai-Chi, SF

Hmm, how long has it been since my last meal at Tai-Chi on Polk? Known for its dirt-cheap lunches, the $4 specials make this the lunchroom for the local postal carriers. I gave it a whirl starting off with a bowl of watery hot and sour soup. For the Hunan tung-an chicken rice plate I make a point to request dark meat and am served a heap of sautéed chicken filets swirled with a dark dusky sauce with spicy vinegar and counterpoint of sweetness over a mound of steamed white rice. It’s a little too gluey, but the ovals of zucchini are cooked just right with crisp and softness. Some orange slices and hot tea wrap up lunch. This hits the spot and price is right. Being able to walk there is a plus too.
