Cafe Zaiya spicy chicken sandwich, now what?

Dang that was GOOD! Thanks to all the 'hounds who recommended it as a lunch spot near my new office.

The place gets hit with a flash mob during lunch hours. It seems the secret is to get what you want and then pay for it up at the line for the papa beard cream puffs - if you can move that far. The sandwich I got was great - and CHEAP! Fried chicken patty (still hot) with spicy sauce, lettuce, tomato on a bulkie roll. I definitely want to try more menu items, so...

What are your favorites at Cafe Zaiya?

The ma po tofu looks good, as does some of the other rice bowls. And there was one that looked like meat on a bed of shredded cabbage instead of rice. Is there anything light/healthy for lunch options there? How are the salads compared to the Asian specialties?
