Our group before PRSSA arrived promptly at 5 p.m., and we were immediately seated. The inside of the restaurant is unique- airy, light, Asian-fusion-y, and there’s a big screen TV and projector on the wall.
Our waiter was really nice, and he knew what all the confusing stuff was on the menu. It was cold, so a couple of us ordered soup. I had the Thai Coconut Chicken Soup, and my friend Ginny had the Chinese Chicken Soup. Mine was very tasty, but it was way too much. The soup bowl was bigger than my head! My soup had pulled chicken, red peppers and skinny noodles in (what I thought was) a broth with some coconut milk. The chicken was tender, and the soup hit the spot.
On top of our soup, others ordered the mongolian beef, lettuce wraps, veggie spring rolls, Japanese spinach salad and general chey’s. We got an assortment of food. Doc Chey’s is one of those places where you have to get something different every time.
