China Palace quick-lunch

It was close to two o’clock on a holiday. Downtown was full of tourists. We were in time for the buffet at China Palace, so, though we read the “Chinese menu” and the “regular menu,” the fact that we were all famished sent us through the line. Some diners were obviously working, in business dress even on Labor Day. There was a steady takeout business. Here’s what gave the most buffet enjoyment: the pot-stickers; something called black pepper chicken, which was indeed laden with black pepper; a dish that contained whole long green beans; and in particular the cold noodle salad mentioned by the Chron, which is strangely addictive and very refreshing. Musical accompaniment was courtesy of KNCT, the least offensive easy-listening station in the entire universe. The lazy Susan is still there in the corner with the large table. We do plan to return during non-buffet hours.
