What's Bill Gates Eating? $24 Pan-Asian Lunch

Even Microsoft (MSFT) Chairman Bill Gates — the (once again) world’s richest man — is looking for deals these days.

travelling through New York, Bill Gates stopped in for lunch at the chichi Tao Restaurant. Bill went for the $24 price-fixe lunch, telling the waiter “that’s a good deal!” PageSix reports.

What does $24 buy at Tao? The restaurant’s Web site says:

Appetizer choice of:
Bang Bang Chicken Salad
Satay of Chicken with Peanut Sauce
Bamboo Steamed Veggie Dumplings
Peking Duck Spring Rolls with Hoisin Sauce

Entree choice of:
Soy Ginger Salmon
Kung Pao Chicken
Shanghai Scallion Beef
Wok seared NY Sirloin
Vegetable or Chicken Pad Thai
Sushi Roll Trio

Banana Bread Pudding

If you’re unfamiliar with lunch prices in midtown New York, actually, that is a good deal. But Bill’s always been a shrewd businessman.
