    I always get the #4 ground pork with sweet glaze & I order it spicy. Apparently walking food tours now stop here. It's still just as great & the owner just as nice

    I would recommend a chicken sandwich, it was really good. But shrimp roll had few pieces of shrimp. In three rolls I've had just one tiny piece of shrimp in each roll.

    리틀 이태리 근방에 있어요. 여러가지 종류의 반미 샌드위치를 맛볼 수 있는데 House Special ($5.5) 시켜 먹었어요. 들은게 고수, 오이, 당근 많이, 돼지고기인 것 같은데, 단촐한 느낌에도 불구하고 진짜 맛있더라구요. 베트남식 아이스 커피도 꿀맛 ($3.25)! 뉴욕에서 먹은 음식 중에 가성비 갑이 아닐까 생각돼요. Cash Only!
