Gravier Oriental Express’s Number 5. I was the Kung Bo Chicken. Whatever this lunch special was called, it was good. It’s got some fried dough sheets, chicken fried rice, and the entree was chicken pieces and mixed vegetables (a bunch of both of these things!) in some fermented bean sauce. Very flavorful and tasted pretty Chinese. I think Americanized Chinese food sucks, but this is great.
The place is across from a church that helps out homeless people. So there are consequently a lot of homeless people around the area. Coming down from the “Walk to Wellness” bridge that is alongside Gravier St is safe though. It’s dark inside and there are a quite a number of tables for a sit down meal. I saw a few tables with nurses and doctors having lunch.
I didn’t catch the language the owner/workers were speaking but I think it was Cantonese. I asked them what their favorite lunch special was and they agreed that number 5 was the best. So I went with what they said. I would check this place out if you’re a student at LSUHSC.
Cost: $6.49 tax included. Better bang for your buck than the cafeteria in the MEB building.
