Friday night had dinner in Chinatown with friends who chose Charles Plaza as our Asian culinary destination. Not much in terms of decor, but the servers and owner - very attentive. The restaurant specializes in vegetarian Chinese cuisine and the dishes are prepared without MSG or heavy sauces.
For instance the sesame noodles have just a light coating. Of course, personally, I like a heavy, sticky, fattening peanut butter Thai sauce, but it's nice to now and again enjoy something without the guilt.
Steamed Chicken Dumplings: Good density and flavor - 3 Tines.
Fish of the day: Never has Tilapia been so satisfying! Crunchy, meaty and smothered in garlic sauce - 4 Tines!
Chicken in a Basket: So Unique! Love the asparagus inside and the brown gravy good for dipping the pieces of fried noodle basket - 3 Tines
