We stopped by to try the dumpling even though we were stuffed from breakfast. The blue pea flower is used to tinge the sticky rice, the way my grandma used to do it. None of the artificial colorings of the modern day. Little chunks of...More

Small place with limited seats, mediocre and overpriced food. Lady there was being a little pushy when selling her food, not the greatest experience.
