I went to Le Soleil tonight for a friend’s birthday. It’s off of Rutland and Lamar Blvd. I had never been there before, and the plaza looked a bit sketchy. Although the place was really hole-in-the-wall-ish, it seemed safe and service was good.
There were six of us, and we ordered the banquet for two plus a chef’s special. It was more than enough food.
The banquet came with hot and sour soup (choice of shrimp or catfish), a hot clay pot dish (choice of catfish or fried tilapia), and a meat dish (choice of shaken beef, beef spicy lemongrass, or beef with Chinese broccoli and mushroom). For the chef’s special, we got the grilled catfish. Sorry for the poor quality pictures…I was using my phone.
I think I’ll have to come here again before I can decide how much I like this place. The menu had a page of “Exotic Food” that seemed pretty interesting. For some reason, it isn’t on the website, but I remember it offered alligator GRILLED AT YOUR TABLE, rabbit, quail, etc.
