Went to this lil' place in Somerville last night, after wanting to try it for awhile now. We and one other couple were the only people there - wonder if it ever gets more full? Anyway, split the appetizer that was a tasting of all 4 types of appetizers, fried tofu was just fried tofu; Potato pancakes were crispy outside soft inside; Spring-roll type thing had fresh cabbage in it; And a squiggly-looking thing was long shreds of onions and also cabbage battered and fried. Good little bites enhanced by the hot chile/onion sauce on the side. Sort of like a simple chutney, but spicy. For dinner also shared a mixed plate on the specials list, it was all dumplings, which I didn't realize when ordering. Good but too much of the same thing - for a reference point, they were like the dumplings you get at dim sum - some with ground meat, some with veggies, some with tofu. Not greasy at all though.
I can't imagine having a craving for this food, but it's definitely worth a try and it's very cheap. 18$ for two to eat and be quite full.
