Chinese restaurant 7/30/99
ABC Express (fast, steam-table food and order-from-the-menu food)

I got a coupon to get their four-item combo, usually $3.45, for $1.99. I got there before noon on 7/30/99. You get rice, chow mein, and two other items. I was asking for something with sliced chicken, the girl said no, and just then it come out. I got the sliced chicken with green beans and other vegetables and also sliced beef with vegetables. This was good stir-fry fast food, and they didn't overcook the vegetables. Nice vegetables. But not much food and very little meat, by American standards. I'd be upset to pay $3.45 for this little food, but for $1.99 it was ok.
Their menu says they are open from 10:30 a.m. to 9 p.m., seven day. This is on the northeast corner of Avalon Blvd. and Del Amo Blvd., the same corner as a 32nd. Street Market. It's north of the 405 San Diego Freeway and south of the 91 Artesia Freeway. They have fast food items at $1 and $1.25. Combo plates with rice and chow mein are: 1 item for $2.49, 2 items at $3.45, and 3 items at $4.45. There are also 80 menu items priced from $1 to $7.75. Most menu items are available in regular or large sizes. The menu lists side orders, soup, fried rice, chow mein, egg foo young, chop suey, pork, shrimp, chicken, beef, vegetable, and soft drinks. The seven vegetable/bean curd dishes at $3.25 (regular) or $4.25 (large) sound good. Ten almond cookies for $1. When's the last time you saw moo goo gai pan on a menu? It's mostly Chinese, but they do list teriyaki and a Thai dish. "We do modified and special diet. No salt, No sugar, or Low sodium cooking on request." Catering available.
