Zander’s House

After 25 yrs, August Moon, a Chinese rest on 75 in Plano best known for its A+ lunch buffet, closed. (Point of info: A cheaper place called Chinese Buffet opened a few blocks away. It’s a dog-eat-dog world.) (Point B: The NoDallas branch is still open.) In its place: a vietnamese rest-lounge called Zander’s House, opened by the Bui family who moved here from NY. (Daughter Tran wears cool Prada glasses.) The menu has a ++ collex of not-the-usual stuff: crepes w/ steamed rice shrimp pork & mushrooms; claypot salmon; shaking cubed filet mignon; crispy anchovies w/ papaya salad & peanuts; "water spinach" sauteed w/ garlic. Plus 25 lunch specials @ $5.50. The white-stucco-&-blue-neon décor’s pretty and, to hedge their bets, there’s a hardwood dance floor. And for the next couplo wks, they're lopping 15% off of every check.

Does this place play songs by Cheap Trick? That's a joke.

On a similar theme, the word verification for this comment is DVDPIT.

Gotta go try those crispy anchovies -- on what I hope is a GREEN papaya salad. Avner used to do deep-fried anchovies instead of croutons on a caesar salad. Great.

Also, from menu I assume Zader's is Vietnamese. Am I correct?

Ms.Ery, T.G's original blog item does say it's Vietnamese.

Ack, look at the crappy new packaging Coke devised for Blak (which btw will be avail Apr 3)

meanwhile, here's a reason to go to the northeast: a new drink from Dunkin' Donuts called Turbo Hot coffee, made with hot coffee and a shot of "real espresso" (as the press release sez)

I look forward to trying this place. It'll be nice to have a Vietnamese place in Plano that isn't focused on pho.
