Had dinner tonight at a communist-themed Chinese restaurant called "Mao's Chinese" on Pacific Avenue in Venice.
I guess we've reached the point where it's cute to be nostalgic about Red China.
The "peasant-style" food is actually very good. The 1970's non-descript Chinese decor is pretty funny (most of the seating is at long picnic tables) and the peasant uniforms worn by the waitstaff go right along with the theme.
The good news is even under communist domination the pot stickers are excellent!
