I stopped in at Lan Sheng Chinese Restaurant in Midtown for lunch. Ordered the Braised Fish Filets & Napa Cabbage W Roasted Chili ($14.95). Lots of fish there. Pretty good dish.
Service is a little awkward though. The waiters seemed distracted by Who Wants to be a Millionaire on TV. But it’s fine, because I really got into Jeopardy afterwards. But why did Alex Trebek tell the Asian girl she was good at math seemingly out of nowhere? Maybe I missed the part where they said she was a mathematician. Anyway, that’s probably the nicest racist thing you can say about someone –that they are good at math.
It did take a while to get my bill, because the staff was eating lunch. I just went up to them and gave them my credit card, because I had to get back to work.
