Have to agree with the few archived posts - this place rocks! Reminded me of some of the great, inexpensive Cantonese-style food experienced during my trips to Vancouver/Richmond. $4 gets you wontons very generously filled with shrimp, a flavorful broth, and a few stalks of Chinese broccoli to round out the bowl. Also ordered the salted deep fried tofu cubes and beef fried rice noodles. All very good.

Some tables had the rice sheet rolls and hot pots. Porridge also seems to be a specialty. If anyone has other recs please share.

Five year old son and I had respective $5 and $6 haircuts at the salon a few doors west. In and out in about 15 minutes.

Be prepared for a wait during peak hours. Parking also a bit difficult even in the back lot.
