I just had the pleasure of trying this one out t'day. It's at 2604 Guadalupe St. almost next to 711. Laid back atmosphere with friendly staff. A walk up counter where you order, pay and they brought the food out promptly. No alcohol but they allow you to BYOB. I had the hot & sour soup. Very hearty and full of flavor. Followed that with the shrimpw/lobster sauce. It had some interesting red pepper that added a distinct flavor as well as zucchini. Served w/white rice I couldn't tell if it had heat to it as I was eating it rather fast. The only other chinese food I've had in Austin is Asia Cafe which is excellent. From what I'm told Ming's specializes in Cantonese recipes that go back through the family. There's also one in Houston. I can't wait to go back and try their curry.
