I've never understood the attraction to CPC. This is place is terrible. The prices are crazy high, the servings only look big because they add a bunch of unnecessary fluff to them. The salad is constantly awful and takes up half of your plate anyway. I went here once when I moved to Tucson years ago and never went back - there are so, so many better Mexican restaurants here!
People have no idea Chef, no f*****g idea.
Good tip, Zack!
You're really missing out if you only look at the American menu. The not-so-secret Szechuan menu is where the best menu items are hiding. Just thinking about it makes my mouth water…

Madeline Gerrish worked as a nurse at St. Mary's before she opened S.O. I went to school with her grandson. He was a nice kid from a nice family. Real Tucson people.
I miss Tucson. That Tucson, anyway.

Her name was "Magda" Her radio commercial was on KTKT, KCUB, KTUC, etc. between the Jim "That's exactly right Hank" Click and the Wally "Call for Wally" Sevitz commercials. "Hi, thisa Magda from Szechuan Omei......." And as Wally would say "and we'll come a-runnin"!
I agree about Kon Tiki.....great place! Love the Scorpion! Their ribs are darn good too.
The story of this place is pretty cool. Most long time people in town remember Madeline's ads on TV. I can't remember the catch line but she was this cute little old woman inviting everyone to eat there. The remarkable part is that she bought the restaurant on her own without telling her husband - very nontraditional for the time and culture. She was a powerhouse in the city,
We stopped by Monday at 1:50 pm and was told that you were NOT serving anymore. Not a good way to attract customers!M
Did I just post to a five-year-old thread? What was it doing on the Chow Main Page?
Maybe they can change up their apparently less-than-stellar image this way. http://youtu.be/dnBZMngx97o

It's the Heather Hoch channel now. All Heather, all the time!
Fortunately she seems to be a pretty good writer.
A meal onto itself? Probably meant a meal unto itself.
Still no answer.
What happened to Noshing Around?
The dumplings are amazing... And the sauce is light and flavorful
