Mr Lau's - change of identity

Mr Lau's, the best Chinese restaurant in Playa, has been defeated and changed into an open fronted homage to the way of the Tiger and Hong Kong movie posters!

'Kung Food'

Did the victor win from punishing tasty treats, or a sneaky low shot?

Who'll be first to enter the dining arena?

BTW, is this the place around the corner from La Rana on 10th Avenue?

Well if you're still in the air, you're going the wrong way!

How's your Urdu?

Kung Food? The name is ridiculous. Maybe it's really going to be a martial arts studio and not a restaurant

Possibly it's both.

Then you can have food fights.

I don't think I could bring myself to go into a Chinese food establishment while in Mexico. It's not that I worry about the food (although cats are in good supply), but it is just not the cuisine I come to PDC to sample.

Now talk to me about Dr. Taco or the steak place across from Mega .....

Anyone tried it? I've got a sick husband at home who would love some comfort food like soup.
