3. You & Me Cuisine

The thing that first struck me about this far east bodega is the unautographed headshot of Stevie Wonder on the wall.

I've been to this place probably about 6 times. Odds are you'll never stumble across it  unless you're drunk or high - in which case you're already off to a good start., and you'll probably also enjoy the picture of Stevie that much more.

The place is in the middle of a plaza, sharing  illustrious real estate with a liquor store, a donut house, and a Vietnamese place, so you already know you're about to get some exquisite freakin' Chinese food the moment you walk into the garbage-riddled parking lot.

The place has decent seating, but a couple of the tables have been utilized as storage and office space for the owners. The first thing I noticed is a lot of Chinese people eating here, which means this place is either really hip or really cheap.

Surprise! It's really cheap. The food is pretty much what you'd expect, poor quality but good portions. It's run by two wacky little asian women who bicker the whole time, which is great if you're into dinner theater.

I'd steer clear of the sweet and sour chicken...too much sauce and the chicken wasn't crispy. Also, they will try and hustle extra money from you if you don't pay attention to the prices on the menu.

If you want a place to sit in private and stuff your face with unhealthy food, odds are you won't run into your boss or anyone of importance here, unless you happen to work for Stevie Wonder.
