My family and I have been to this newly opened restaurant on Noriega St. between 20th and 21st AVE. It serves Hong Kong style cafe food mainly. It's a family owned place with the husband as the chef and the wife working as waitress.

We've tried dishes from most of the categories of food from the menu. I can honestly say that I like them all. I'm not a fan of the Hong Kong cafe dishes like baked pork chops in spaghetti, but theirs was pretty good. It came with 3 thin pork chops seasoned nicely with a bowl of tomatoey sweet and sour sauce on the side.

My favorite dishes were the pan fried homestyle rice noodles and the dried fried string beans with olives. The noodles had good wok hay and the flavors were well balanced. The combination of bean sprouts, sliced onions, green onions and various match stick sized meats were in just the right proportion to eveything.

The string beans are my favorite version anywhere. The chinese olives add a distinct flavor that went so well with the minced meat. I liked the small chunks of carrots that added the light sweetness.

The other dish that I liked alot was the salt fish, chicken and tofu claypot. The problem with that dish was I had to eat rice with it and I ate way too much rice.

They have a special deal where 3 dishes with rice and soup is only $21.99. We added a noodle dish and a couple others and our family of 6 ate for $50. I hope they stick around.
