Okay first off, I did not come in with a open mind on this place for one reason. I had one thing on my mind. Sticky. And, not sticky in a yummy-greasy-hole-in-the-wall way, but it was sticky like it’s hot with the AC not being cool enough, and there are no people eating in here because perhaps it is not delicious?

I hemmed and I hawed and finally chose something that sounded mildly appetizing. The mister had no problem picking his because we actually came in here for his hankering for Spicy Beef Noodle Soup.

Here we go:
1. Spicy Beef Noodle Soup – Not bad. Beef was almost perfectly tender and noodles were al dente. It is acceptable.
2. Minced Pork Rice Bowl (Lunch Special) – Plop on the table. Pickled mustard greens, hard boiled egg and PORK BELLY chopped into pieces over fluffy white rice and savory sauce. This was comfort food to the max. It was delicious. I probably consumed my calorie maximum for two days with the PORK BELLY, but boy, was it worth it. Check out my “perfect bite,” in cravingsofafatgirl (CFG) world, I tend to like to make perfect bites for everything. That means grabbing a spoon and carefully combining all ingredients in the dish in one bite-ful. For example, perfect bites in CFG world can happen with all noodle soup dishes, salads, sandwiches and burgers. This particular “perfect bite” consisted of fluffy white rice soaked with sauce, a few bits of pickled mustard and a “sprinkle” of PORK BELLY bits.

Conclusion: I’m not sure I’ll come back for other dishes that seem to just be chop-suey-panda-expressey dishes, but if the mister wants noodles and I want minced pork aka PORK BELLY bowl, we will return. 3.5/5 beeps!
