[AUS] Lilly Sandwich and First Chinese BBQ in new Asian Market

Carter B. | Sep 19, 2006 06:43 PM

We tried to go to Lilly's Sandwhich in the new Asian Market at Braker/Lamar but ironically they had just run out of bread and were waiting for their delievery (the lady in front of us had an order of 20 sandwhiches it seemed). The place looks nice but the menu seemed
limited. Maybe 5 sandwhichs ($2-$2.50), some bun and some rice wraps. Still, as always, I'm hopeful it'll be a good place.

Instead we ended up at First Chinese BBQ again and we had a nice smattering of dishes. BBQ pork with lo mein looked good but not as good as similar dishes at Din Ho. The spicy squid turned out to be salt & pepper squid and not quite as good as the options at T&S. Chicken with mushrooms & vegetables was quite tasty as was the seasem chicken. All in all, we like the place but weren't blown away.

Also, we poked our head into the market and felt we needed to get a good Asian cookbook and come back with a shopping list...

Finally, there's a Short & Sweet Cafe that is open that we didn't get a chance to look at while the Noodle House is still having its interior worked on.
