We were lucky enough to stop by last week and sample some of these DELICIOUS DISHES and let me tell you — THEY ARE WORTH EVERY (MODERATELY PRICED) PENNY.
  • The Banh Mi was our absolute favorite, being big enough to fill our very hungry stomachs and chock full of flavor (+ those zesty fries add even more kapow! to the tastebuds).
  • The Duck Fried Pork Rice was surprisingly light and delicate, with subtle hints of cilantro and perfectly cooked duck to delight our palates.
  • Plus the Pork Ramen Noodles were TO.DIE.FOR. and would make the best meal/option when you’re craving something hearty on a rainy spring day.
