Mt. Pleasant is in southeast Iowa. It is an hour from the Interstate and best known for its thresher museum. But it has at least three Chinese restaurants and a Chinese grocery store. Who knew? All I know is that I enjoyed and appreciated my meal there. The décor included a large Chinese mural and an impressive Chinese sword.
Here is my hot and sour soup. As you can see, it was served on the official Chinese zodiac placemat, fresh from the printing press beneath Cheyenne Mountain that supplies all Chinese restaurants.
And here are my mixed vegetables; I ate the egg roll before I took this photo. The vegetables were fresh and hearty. This was a lunch special, which the restaurant offers seven days a week, so the meal was a good value. Thank you!
