Tonight I'm in Napa and I asked the Hotel Front Desk Clerk to recommend a simple, basic Chinese restaurant. Jackpot! She steered me towards the Asia Cafe on Main Street in downtown Napa. It was exactly what I was looking for.
After she recommended it I asked the clerk if the restaurant was Cantonese or Mandarin? She said, "no, it's Chinese."
Truth is, I don't really know the regional cuisines of China well enough to tell the difference but when I saw the giant, neon Chop Suey sign over the front door I knew I was going to like it.
