There's a Chinese Restaurant inside City Hall!
It was Flyer reporter Toby Sells who told me about it, and while he worked in the building when covering the council for the Commercial Appeal, he had never eaten there himself. So yesterday, we went and checked it out.
Royal Jasmine serves about half-a-dozen Chinese entrees — broccoli in brown sauce, chicken skewers, green beans and chicken, etc. Customers get their choice of two, with an option of steamed rice, noodles, or fried rice for $5.50.
Royal Jasmine also serves breakfast. Diners can order to-go or eat in the restaurant. There's plenty of seating, and I would describe the decor, with its browns and oranges as decidedly bureaucratic.
