Um. So, does this mean Szechuan food served on a bed of coals?

Because if there's one thing Seattle needs, it's another Asian restaurant.

@1: No, I think it means all the servants will be coolies.

There is one of these in Atlanta. I don't know if they're connected, but ours is delightful.

Just in time for my parents' next visit! I am soooo taking them there!

Orient Express? Will it take one to Constantinople?

Somehow, I just KNEW that's what the place was going to be called.

Now, they just need to start doing gawd-awful murder mystery dinner theatre there every week (I can already see the title: "MURDER! At The 'Orient Express'"), and the humiliation will be complete!

#6 - I hear it's Istanbul, not Constantinople.

So...If you've got a date in Constantinople, she'll be waiting in Instanbul.

Why did Constantinople get the works?

@9: that's nobody's business but the Turks'.

God I love teh Slog sometimes.

I think the name will be misleading. I've been burned before.

Either it tastes just like chicken, or Panda Express doesn't serve real panda, either.

Once upon a time, Andy's Diner was a magical place. It's great that the site will be revived, but sad that someone didn't stick closer to the original theme (and name).

If you put a gyoza on the tracks, will you get an onion pancake when the train goes by?

Panda has to be grass-fed.

Well, that plus bamboo shoots.

They stick the bamboo under your fingernails when you apply for an Olympics protest permit, to "reeducate" you.

15 - Shhhhh.

Hercule Poirot is rolling in his grave.

or Shanghai Lily.

One of the two.

It took more than one man to change her name to Shanghai Lily...
