today vinita (new coworker) and i decided to go get lunch. orginally we were going to go get sandwiches somewhere, but it was raining and we decided to go somewhere with an indoors.
somehow we ended up at the hunan restaurant on sansome.
from what i understand this place used to be great, but now it is just blech & mediocre. our waitress was this cute older asian lady, with a fro-perm thing going on, but all her cuteness couldn't make up for the yucky food. Diana's meat pie (which came with the special) has to be made with spam or some sort of canned meat (not that i have anything against canned meat i just wasn't expecting it to taste so blech). and the spicy beef dish i got was just blech and the beef was overcooked. it tasted like home cooked chinese, only by homecooked i mean something my morm would make had she forgotten that we like to eat things that are tasty and also she hates us for being ungrateful and so is pissed off and isn't trying very hard, and in fact is sort of punishing with something that is only edible & filling & nothing more because we don't deserve it.
i might go back, but i can't see myself ever suggesting we go there again. which is too bad, because i hear it used to be (in the 80s) a great place to eat.
sidenote: if you watch south park, you know what i mean by city chinese.
