Sure, you can’t turn the corner in Columbus and not find a Chinese restaurant, but unless you drive to Reynoldsburg before you start turning, odds are you won’t find anything nearly as terrific as Lai Lai. The spicy Kung Pao Tofu ($8.95) is extra crispy on the outside, soft and juicy on the inside, and completely covered in that familiar savory brown sauce, which we guess must be chock full of Kung Power. Try the Mala Green Beans served with your choice of meat or the Fish Filet with Black Bean Sauce, or some spicy Hunan Chicken. Just don’t try too much, because the homemade dessert mousses are essential.
