    Iced "champagne" milk tea, pretty good in SF standard: rich flavor & smooth (but not too much better than average milk tea you can find in any cafe in Hong Kong).. Still grateful to have this here! 😋

    Slide fish noodle in shark bone soup: love the white broth (tasty)! But the Chinese Name is deceptive as there's no 魚片頭, it's fish filet instead... Pretty good anyways! 😋😁

    Can't believe I'm only trying this "Serradura" (“sawdust” in Portuguese) pudding (a Macau dessert) for the first time! The "sawdust" are layers of Marie biscuit crumbs between pudding. Only ok...

    Tan pan beef w/rice is amazing, it cooks ON the plate while you wait. The rice is sauced internally and the heat spreads the flavor through the rice.

    Open late. Cash only. Service is slow and gets pretty busy with line/wait around dinner time. Pretty good hainan chicken rice and cute egg pudding in egg shells (may sell out early).

    We came in, and was given a table. We sat then there for 5 mins waiting for the menu. -__- however, the upside is that the food is pretty good.

    Very disappointed. Long line to be seated even when there were empty tables. Took 30-40 min to get our food. No one checked on our order until we said something. Food was mediocre & overly spiced.

    For WiFi, look for a hotspot called Cisco something. The password is password.
