    "WHAT YOU WANT? COLD SESAME NOODLE? BUT IT SO COLD OUT, WHY YOU NOT ORDER SOUP INSTEAD?" - My conversation with the lady behind the counter the other day. Love this place.

    Portions here are giant, the place often has beggars by the door but food's good. Don't bother with the restaurant portion, prices are way higher there with same take-out food. Make sure to call ahead

    Don't be fooled by the take-out half of the storefront, they're sit-down restaurant is legit.

    Call in your order B4 you get here, then take your time coming, you will wait for your food. Its faster to just sit down and eat here then do the take-out.
