Lunch at Tu Lan
Tu Lan is beautifully lively and yet no one is in your face the way they are in some too-crowded restaurants. Service is fast and never intrusive. I noticed the staff knew many people in the lunch crowd by name and could just hand their take-out orders over automatically. It’s important to me, too, that a restaurant not be an echo chamber and in Tu Lan despite the crowds, I could hear my own conversation.
Hot chicken soup and vietnamese ice coffee drip for me; coffee and spring rolls and bbq pork for Debbie; with tip we paid 20 bucks.
What a great place!
But more than restaurants, 6th and Market is about the people and I’ll post about them in a few minutes, separately.
