CBS in Chinatown

Friday afternoon we stopped by CBS in Chinatown. No, not the TV station, the Chinese restaurant. This time instead of having dim sum in the dining room, we opted for the take-out line. Fortunately for us the cook brought out fresh pans of steaming hot flat noodles with vegetables and shrimp fried rice with vegetables. We also ordered the salty shrimp, fried pork chop, and thin pan-fried noodles. What a feast, five large orders, and under $16! You can't drive to the store, buy the ingredients, make the stocks and sauces, and cook everything at home for that price. Talk about low food cost percentage! How do they do it? We will probably end up eating the leftovers for days!
