Punjab Chinese American Restaurant (the name's not a reference to the Indian state, here it means "fire dragon") offers free mimosas with its weekend brunch, a standard Americana menu of eggs, pancakes, french toast, and the like. Standard that is, until one considers that the weekday menu is also fair game, from traditional Chinese fare to trash food staples like hot dogs and cheeseburgers — and some say the joint's Polynesian fried chicken is among the best cluck in town. Whatever's making your tummy rumbly, the secret to Punjab is to call in your order in advance — this homemade fare takes time to prepare.
