    Service kinda sucks, maybe bc my friends and I are not White or Asian. I always ended up leaving because no server comes to our table to take our order or to even give us water.

    Order the minced pork over rice and ask for it to be spicy. While you wait for that, start on the fried string bean appetizer with their spicy mayo. Bubble tea isn't the only good thing here..
