    I enjoyed everything that was offered to us last night - kudos to Jeff for his wonderful choices, and kudos to the restaurant for vegan-izing their menu for our group. I don't believe anyone left hungry!

    Excellent gourmet food and terrific service! Great company and interesting conversations.

    The food was varied, fresh and delicious. They gave us plenty, more than I expected. I also liked the decor, and the parking was great.

    Just a couple of things that might keep me from going back to Lao Sze Chuan: the cooked dishes were swimming in oil - too much according to several of my dining partners. I also try to stay away from white rice, which other diners mentioned as well. It would be nice if they used brown rice or other unprocessed, whole grain rice. If I went again I would ask for mild-level spicy, it took a while for my tongue to stop burning last night.

    It was good to meet some new people. Once again Jeff and Pam have done a great job arranging this - and for a terrific price!

    I don't know of any places in particular, but in the future I would like to try vegetarian Cuban, Peruvian, Persian, Filipino, Moroccan, Spanish, Portuguese and Vietnamese food.

    With one dish of each selection and presumably hefty appetites, will there be enough for everyone?

    July 8, 2013

    • Denice S.

      Vy If you or anybody else wants my "share" of the eggplant you can have it. I don't touch the stuff!

      July 8, 2013

    • Viet V.

      Hi Denice, unfortunely I'm not too fond of eggplant either, I'm more of a tofu-fiend!

    Sorry Jeff, I might have to commit to something else. Since there is some1 on the waiting list, I trust that my RSVP change won't be an issue...lmk if otherwise.

    July 8, 2013

  • Jeff Olichwier (Realtor for y.

    I think there will be but that is why I am letting everyone know they will need to SHARE... Usually we get buffet and it is not an issue, but for price they would not do it.

  • Marcy H.

    Sounds delicious!

    Looks like we already have plans for that night. Sorry that we'll miss out but we'll see everyone at the next event!
