Lucky Wah

For a while after I finished college, I was disgusted by both Chinese take-out and Domino's pizza, which had provided my only relief for late-night study-session hunger. Although I vow never to eat another Domino's pizza, I am slowly recovering from my fear of Chinese take-out, thanks in part to Lucky Wah.

At this incredibly inexpensive three-table eatery, Chinese chefs bustle behind the counter. Lunch specials, which change daily, are only $3; I recently had a large plate of pork fried rice, sweet-and-sour chicken, and spicy beef teriyaki on a skewer. Other favorites include the peppery but sweet ginger noodle lo mein, abounding with fresh egg noodles and scallions ($3.50), and hot-and-spicy Szechuan chicken with garlic sauce ($4.50).

The menu has over 100 items, including soups, roast duck, and many vegetarian dishes. Prices range from $1.35 for spring rolls to $8.95 for large seafood entrees.

Lucky Wah, located at 1391 Beacon Street, in Brookline, is open Monday through Thursday from 11:30 a.m. to 2 a.m., on Friday and Saturday from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 a.m., and on Sunday from 1 p.m. to 1 a.m. Call 232-3838.
