I haven't done one of these in a while. I recently had a pretty good bowl of soup, and thought "hmmmm, maybe it's time to give away some coffee".
So here we go, I'll post a few photos. Email me the name of the restaurant, and I'll Email the first 7 correct answers a free cup of Peet's. Now that it's getting a bit cooler, doesn't a cup of Peet's sound good?
Okay.....the name of this Chinese Fast Food Restaurant is:
As much as I hate the name...it's Fortune Cookie Express, hidden behind other businesses on Balboa avenue. And most of the usual Fast-Food suspects are in view from Chop Suey to Beef Broccoli.
It's one of the last places on Earth that I'd be eating....but the Chow Ma Mein was recommended by the Twins at Sandwich Emporium. Turns out that you won't find it on the regular menu....but if you check out the photos on the side wall you'll see the a photos of "Chowmamein".
Looks pretty spicy, huh?
The Chow Ma Mein, seems to use all those Chinese Fast-food components...the thin cut stir fry refugee veggies, fast food chow mein noodles, the sliced beef, etc....
Though I enjoy the fried garlic, and the 5 pieces of shrimp, the Chow Ma Mein is a bit on the oily side, but for $3.99, who's going to really complain. The Chow Ma Mein is nice and spicy, though lacking in much other flavor, and will fill you up.......
BTW, there was one correct guess! Kudos to Kimmie!
