    The kind man working at the food court, cooking stir fry, was extremely generous and offered my meal on the house after I had to go back twice and ask the front desk for a different card that worked:)

    If you're not using a stroller or have someone with mobility issues, consider using the escalators instead of the elevators. This mall's elevators are extremely slow and overused.

    Definitely worth eating at Foodease instead of Foodlife. You can build your own plate & take things to go. Better selection in my opinion!
