|Welcome to our FOOD HALL!|
|He has no idea why he is smiling.|
|We were mall entertainment for a while that day.|
|This kid laughs all day long- but riding a big blue dog is pretty funny!|
YES! Your eyes do not decieve you! In the middle of Michiana on a snow day in a deserted mall you can have it all! East meets West, meets South in the Midwest! - Chao Cajun! It is the Cajun Asian experience that I never knew I was missing!
|Loved the little signs. Kind of wanted to snag the crab rangoon one, but those days are behind me.|
|The old standby - Chic-fil-A|
Overall it was not a dissapointment. It tasted like is should have. The chicken was fried in TONS of batter and the sause was more sweet than sour, which I expect. The beef and broclli was good, but not the best I have ever had. But, the best part were the bouron glazed noodles. They had awesome flavor and mixed well with the sweet and sour chicken. It was a lot of food for the money. I paid $7.99 for all of this. I will also admit here that I barely was able to finish it. It was all so heavy and filling that about 10 bites in and I was calling it quits. The owner noticed I had not finished and came out with a to-go box for me. He reminded me that "Mom's need to eat too!" - and sometimes honestly I do forget.
So the food was good. It was filling. It tasted as advertised, and I am forever grateful that I can now say I had Cajun Asian food!

Side note - THIS place has amazing Chinese food in South Bend - Ho Ping House!
|Any friends in town - THIS is where we are going!|
I mean look at the badass terracotta warriors defending it. No, seriously its good. It also is even cooler because it used to be a Denny's not so long ago. I think Ho Ping House may translate roughly to "This used to be Denny's". This will be my next project...I think....you will have to stay tuned.
Until next time!
