The place was pretty packed on a Sunday night. The decor was pretty standard as far as Chinese restaurants go... nothing fancy. The menu looked pretty good. I wanted to try so many things. Sorry I don't remember most of the prices but everything was under $10.
But the first thing I noticed is that service is pretty lackluster. The water I ordered never came. I had to ask twice. And then the water glasses were never refilled until I asked them again. But it didn't really phase me. This is almost expected at Chinese restaurants. I know it's a terrible expectation but they tend to hold up to the stereotype. :( However, I'm there to try the food, the service is secondary.
I got the Chili Beef Noodle Soup $6.99~
My friend got the Pork Chop Rice.
Which is usually my go-to but I wanted to try their noodles. But this way I get to try the pork chops as well! hehe. It comes in a bento box, the portion size is pretty decent. The pork chops were pretty thin but were cooked well and I liked the seasoning on the batter. Reminded me of flavors in Taiwan (and being a Taiwanese restaurant...it SHOULD, right? haha). Not too bad!
We also got the Hand Grab Scallion Pancake.
They also have the regular scallion pancake but this kind is better in my opinion. It's looser and more "fluffy". It was a big portion for 2 people to share. Nice crispy top layer and good texture throughout. Yum!
So I also read online that they have pearl milk tea for $1...so I had to verify! Yes and no... it's a dollar if you spend a specific amount and the lady wasn't very clear on it. But since our dinner was pretty cheap we were only able to get 1 for $1 the 2nd cup was like $2 and some change. Still not bad. But... it wasn't good. Really sweet (artificial tasting) and the boba was not good. I'd save the dollar and go to Fat Straws or something. hahaha.
Anyways, it was a good dinner overall. I'm glad this place is much closer to me than King's Noodle. So now if I want Beef Noodle Soup and my mom isn't here... I know where to go. :)
