P. and I went here for lunch today 8/10/06. When we got there we were not the first, amazing. Someone else arrived before us.
They are open 10am-3am, long hours.
They gave us a pot of tea right after sitting down. I'd prefer a cup of ice water but it's hard to get ice water in a Chinese restaurant many times, so I didn't bother. I asked for my free boba tea but waitress said they were making it, and it'll be done in 10 minutes. We did get the Free boba after our noodle dishes! Nice.
There is a huge menu here: House special rice in lotus leaf, soups, dim sum; simmered items; special combo box $4.65-5.55; simmered items; noodle dishes; rice plates; tossed noodle plates; porridge; Chinese specialties; and clay pots.
We got three dishes:
#137 beef stew tossed noodle $5.50-huge plate of noodles and a handful of beef stew and some tender greens. Pretty good but then they give you a tiny bowl to eat it in, best to just eat it from the plate it's served on.
P. got #102-house special pan fried noodle $5.50-huge plate of pan fried HK-style noodles w/ tender greens, chicken, beef, shrimp. He liked it.
#28- boiled dumplings $5.25-12 pieces of boiled dumplings w/ pork (I think) in it, comes with a vinegary sauce. I liked it.
We finished the dumplings, and we each got our dish with lots of leftovers. We are big eaters so I'm always happy when we have leftovers!!
Total before tip was $17.90!! CASH ONLY! With the bill you can get a $1 off coupon for a future visit that expires in 10 days.
Service I'd give it 2 stars-waitresses are too busy talking to each other to bother helping the customer. I had to flag down the waitress to order, we had to get extra plate ourself, had to go to the cashier to pay, and flag down the waitress to get boxes to go.
Sign near the front-Today's Special: Crocodile $9.95; Deer Meat $9.95; Rabbit $12.99; Snake $12.99!!
Food-4 stars, Recommended.
