Went to Cousin Cafe on Tues 8/5/08 for their Happy Hr which is from 3-6pm. They have food cheaper when you go those hours.

Only 1 waitress, she's no-nonsense & is quick!

I got:

Pan fried rice rolls $2.75-maybe 2-3 rolls pan fried then cut up, w/ those dried shrimp, green onions, & some sprinkles of sesame seed & the peanut butter/plum sauce on the side & soy sauce on the bottom of the rolls. Still like them. Be careful, because they are served really hot off the pan & will burn your mouth!

Cousin special noodle soup - $5. I asked for ho fun (fat rice noodles) & it comes w/ fish balls, beef balls, some cheap hot dog meat, beef brisket (not much), daikon, & lettuce. I thought it was ok. I'll stick to the wonton noodle soup $5 for next time - I like that better.

HK hot milk tea $2.25 - pretty good.

Most people get the wonton noodle soup ($5) & the garlic chicken wings ($3.95). On my list to try: Fish porridge ($3.95)

My total $10 + .88c tax = $10.88 Before Tip.
