Today's lunch was from Lum-Yuen Restaurant. Some people rave about it, but only people that aren't sticklers for authentic Chinese food.
One time I tried to order something even remotely resembling Chinese food and I was told by the chef that they didn't serve Chinese food, but only Americanized Chinese food.
My lunch today was the #6 on their lunch combination menu. There was pork fried rice, a shrimp egg roll, and egg foo young. I was pretty surprised when I got my box of lunch, the egg roll was gigantic! It was the size of chimichanga! There wasn't much shrimp in it, but I can't say that it was bad. The rice was pretty good, but tasted like it was cooked in animal fat. And the egg foo young was about what I expected. It was decent, but it didn't have quite enough gravy.
Lum-Yuen seems like it would be a pretty good place to go for Americanized Chinese food, it's definitely a great value, but not very heart healthy, and definitely not authentic.
