    The cooking here resembles nothing you will encounter in Taipei, Myanmar or Malaysia — Sang Yoon's dan dan mian, tea-leaf salad and crab fritters approach the originals in intent, but they're his. Read more

    Love this place! Eggplant was amazing as was the crab rice. Service was terrific and not terribly expensive. Want to go back and try the exotic drinks. Ask for the chicken lollipops! Amazeballs.

    Spicy chicken pops are to die for! And ask if they're doing the duck special. It's not on the menu but sometimes they offer it and it's delicious!

    Wow, many dishes are spicy without advertising so. Ask the waitstaff if a dish is spicy to make sure. I love spicy but my husband can't handle it. We can't share some dishes here.

    Amazing wines to pair with the cuisine. Ask for the Diatom White if still available. Its super dry and crisp and not what you think of as a California wine. Try and guess the grape used...
