No, not a request for a private party restaurant.
But about Private Party Restaurant.
A new hot pot restaurant with a charcoal setup for grilling skewers.
No biggie right? Except this place takes kitsch to the next level.
If Indian is all about Native American garb and what-not, this place is all about the Communist Party, and fealty to Chairman Mao. Down to the servers wearing Red Army garb.
We had the lamb shoulder, beef tongue and a few other items including gizzard and (wait for it) Spam! Who knew the Chairman was into spicy canned ham product. So forward thinking of the dude.
Word to the wise, don’t order the shrimp. They come headless. WTF!?
Oh, and if you go, you must visit the restroom.
