It was a cool, mid-December evening under a full moon when we pulled into the parking spot. The exterior of the building made us leery as we looked for the door. A friend had suggest this place, but we were now not so sure. But when we came through the door we were sure we heard the Hallelujah chorus as we glanced around at the bright clean interior, the colorful silk plants and Chinese decor. A football game was playing on the TV as smells of spicy goodness wafted to our nostrils. We weren't greeted at the door, and there was no sign indicating whether we should wait or seat ourselves, so we chose the latter. The furnishing were clean and colorful. Some of the vinyl on the booths was worn, but not in an overly damaged kind of way. A vinyl repair kit would have them looking like new in no time. There was not a speck of dust anywhere, not even on the ceiling fans - dormant on this cool evening. There were a couple of customers waiting for carry out, but it was barely 5 o'clock. We had chosen to dine early so we could talk without disturbing others. The host asked us less than 2 seconds after we chose our seats for our drink order, which he delivered just as promptly with our menus. The selection was huge, not something you would expect for a little place. It took us some to read all the options. Our server was patient and very kind. We both chose the sesame chicken, fried rice, she the egg drop soup, I the hot and sour. The soup came very promptly. It only glitch in the evening was we both got the egg drop soup. But, being adventurous, I didn't complain and tried it anyway. As I took my first sip it was as if magical fairies from a mystical kingdom far away came and danced on my tongue. The world seemed warmer and brighter as I continued to consume this magical concoction. Before I was even half way through the soup, our entrees arrives, screaming hot and GIANT and I mean HUMONGOUS portions. One would have been enough to split and still had leftovers. The rice, likewise was served family-style in it's own container. We were assured we could have more if we wanted, but given the large portion before us, we knew we wouldn't need it. As the magic soup fairies danced away, I dug into my sesame chicken. It was at that moment that I began to understand what the gods of olympus must have felt like eating their ambrosia. It was heavenly. I venture to say even orgasmic. (Can I say that on google? too bad I did.) It was spicy, but flavorful, very fresh and not overdone. The fairies had been replaced by tiny dragons that gently heated my tastebuds, but held back from burning them, allowing the sesame flavor to roll gently across my palate. Soon I had consumed most of my giant portion without regard for my bulging stomach. I could hear my tastebuds screaming "more more!" while my stomach groaned in protest. But I had to stop. Our server delivered a to-go box with our check, as if she had read our minds. There was no way we were leaving any behind. Then we looked at the check. As if our evening hadn't been magical enough we realized that not only had we spent less than we would have at any other Chinese place in town, but we spent less than just about any place that doesn't have a dollar menu. The prices were obviously set by leprechauns that already have all the gold they could ever want. We left happy, full, and with money still in our pockets. Don't let the exterior of this place turn you off. The inside is quaint, very clean, and bright. The bathroom is small and not wheelchair friendly, though. The only glitches of the night were the soup, which I did not mention to the server, but enjoyed the substitute very much anyway, and the fried rice was just a *tiny* bit on the dry side. If you want the only GOOD chinese food in the 4 corners, then this is your new favorite place. Trust me. The fairies, dragons, and leprechauns are waiting for you.
