The Thai restaurant Pearl Café doesn't hide so much as hunker down -- one more squat, featureless building on a long stretch of Lindbergh Boulevard lousy with strip malls and fast-food joints. The parking lot borders a QuikTrip and a mini-golf course; across the street is a Burger King. Take away the restaurant signage and the building could house swimming-pool supplies, cell phones or payday loans. In fact, before it was Pearl Café, it was a cheap Chinese place, Hunan Delight.Visit the RFT restaurant page late tomorrow afternoon or check back here Wednesday morning to see what I think.
