Excellent friendly service. As first timers we asked what to do and got friendly instructions and attentive service. When the waiter saw me looking at the order list, he kindly told me what was left to be served.
Food all outstanding. We ordered 9 different items to try them out. I loved 8 of 10 items.
I asked for Chinese chicken salad which was not on the menu. No problem! I think the waiter said it's usually a dinner menu item.
Items that are typically sweet were on the sweeter side, which is my preference. I had no desire to use soy sauce for anything. All food had its own scrumptious flavor.
Ordered items - names may not be exact.
Baked pork bun: the outside is a different recipe than the dough you might be accustomed to. However, even though they we not browned and an unexpected texture, they were scrumptious. Sweet.
Deep fried pork dumpling. Outside is crispy sweet dumpling wrap, inside a little bit of pork. Yummy. Sweet.
Shrimp dumpling. Flavorful. Good, I would order again.
Blossom Shrimp Ball: Never my favorite, and no change here. The inside is a shrimp mixed with something -maybe a flour based product. Outside is deep fried.
Scallop Dumplings with truffle. I didn't try this personally but was reported to be good.
Spicy pan fried lamb bun. Excellent. One 3-4 inch bun like the steamed pork bao texture you are familiar with. Spicy, but excellent flavor. Waiter will cut it into 4 pieces. Not sweet. It is fried on the bottom and delivered in the little frying pan.
Pork chow mein. They have a different noodle than your standard chow mein. They use the very thin one. Flavoring was typical. I liked it very well.
Chinese chicken salad. Iceberg lettuce, peanuts, chicken. The lettuce was not chopped small and there was little or no dressing. There were more peanuts than I would expect. I did not enjoy this, I could have made it at home easily.
I will be going back and will order the baked pork buns, the deep fried pork dumpling, and the chow mein. Since they are so good at the sweet itms, I can't wait to try their red bean sesame ball!
The lunch specials shown on the website are Monday through Friday only.
Last word: At 1:45 on a Saturday, the place was full. Only a few tables open. Served was excellent and attentive.
