Fairly new Northern Chinese skewer place plus a few other dishes. Minimum of 2 skewers per order, lots of items $1-$2.

Bacon wrapped lychee: as good as it sounds
Chicken hearts: nice spicing, but the meat had a stronger taste than it should have

They specialize in skewers, but I took a risk at ordering some other stuff because I was craving hearty vegetable matter:

A choy : Coated in a chili oil that also contained whole chili seeds, fennel seeds, and sichuan peppercorns. This was hotter than anything I've eaten at Sichuan restaurants as of late, so best eaten not by itself. Excellent, and only $2.

Pork and cabbage casserole : Also excellent. Contained slices of pork belly, thin clear noodles, and really good fermented cabbage. The cabbage was brightly flavored and crunchy.

Friendly server. It was empty close to 11PM. Open till midnight yesterday (a Wednesday) with regular late night hours.
