Now that you’re back to school or work on the U of I campus, you’ll need to makes plans for lunch. While the weather is lovely, it’s nice to walk to Green Street and get your food to go. On your next outing, consider Mandarin Wok. The lunch specials are affordable and plentiful. Just a few days ago, the spouse and I got some lunch (kung pao chicken lunch special, $6; beef brisket, $12). They were both good, and the rice was perfectly cooked. It was nice to take the food away and eat outside; it was still piping hot when we got to our preferred dining location.
