Last night, my SO and I tried this little joint up on 143rd and Greenwood and wow, what a treat. We started off with what they call their “appetizer” which comes free with every meal. It was a little pile of marinated carrot, cuke, and bean sprouts, and we dispensed with it in short order. Then we had a dozen of their boiled dumplings ($7), which you can dip in a red clil sauce or their house garlc sauce, oh so delicious, and oh so garlicky. The dumplings have ground pork and either scallions or leeks in them. Oh yeah.
Next we had soup. I got the won ton and my SO had hot and sour, both $1.50 for a small cup. Best wonton soup I have ever had, with a gorgeous handmade noodle stuffed with meat in a delicate broth. SOt said his hot/sour was really nice too. They also do a large bowl of either and some other soups for $4.50 or around $7 for the big family style bowl.
Then they brought us BBQ fried rice ($7) that looked pretty meh, but we ate every last bite, so it must not have been too bad. Last we had the leek “pancake” (2 for $6.50) which is a crispy folded pancake stuffed with leeks and other things. Also very very tasty.
Total bill was $26 and our bellies were full. Everything was light and well-prepared, and not at all greasy.
They are only open until 9 and last call for orders is 8:30. It looks like a good place to get take-out, though it might take a little while, I’d call ahead or plan on running errands for a little bit while they make your food.
