Forgetting that it was Thursday, and the San Rafael Downtown Farmer's Market was open again, a friend and I met at the House of Lee to enjoy dinner. A vendor of Nepalese things was situated in front of the restaurant. It made for a colorful scene.
Catrina loves Hot and Sour Soup so that was the first thing we had. The portions at House of Lee are large. This was good, but does have pork bits if you are watching out for that kind of ingredient. It was good though.
Catrina said the Chicken Chow Mein was so good, she'd be bringing her husband back for a visit here. She said it was sauced just right.
I ordered Crystal Prawns which were in a light garlic and ginger sauce. The prawns were plump and moist and obviously fresh. I was quite happy with it over some white rice (not pictured). It was the closest I've had in Marin to the experience of Chinese restaurants in San Francisco's Chinatown. It's also well known for serving Dim Sum all day (by order, no carts). I was quite satisfied with my experience, as was my companion and we'll be back another time.
