Everything here seems to be covered in orange gravy.
On both visits to Lun Ting Cafe, my slow-cooked roast pork and ox tail were swimming in this warm, savory rice enhancer. Located on the 600 block of Jackson, the American-Chinese diner is complete with counter seating, greasy clock, man behind the stove and wife behind the dish pit. This comfort food makes the perfect companion to the cool fall nights ahead. And hangovers. And break-ups. I mean, um, the. perfect. meal. after. a. hard. day’s. work.
A popular lunch hang out for nearby workers, bicycle police and the stragglers that sloth across the alley after cocktails at Red’s Place. Nothing here will cost you more than $10. Every rice plate is served with soup and dessert. Had to turn down the JELL-O though.
That was orange too.
