Chen-Wu family visit
Chen-Wu family visit, they even got Mr. Placer to show up the first day! Take-out from House of Meatballs was more than decent enough, although Zeus did not look impressed.
Dinner the next day was in Culver City. Did not expect a hipster place in downtown Culver City to be any good, but Ms Chi Cafe managed a decent meal. The award-winning cheeseburger potstickers were a little weird, but they were actually tasty-- almost worth the price. Chicken dumplings were small and had way too much soy sauce, but you could tell they were legit underneath. Eggplant was tasty, and the real surprise was the mapo tofu... which had avocado added-- and it actually worked. o_0
Not quite sure it's worth a return visit, but it's certainly innovative enough!
