On a Monday night it was pretty quiet, but there were still 2-3 tables occupied at any one time.
Deep Fried Spicy Prawns ($16.98) two types: spicy, or salt-and-pepper; on bill: "prawn w/ chili"
- We got the salt-and-pepper version, which wasn't spicy at all. Not too peppery either.
- Very fried! Not oily at all. So crispy you can eat the entire prawn. The head was crispy and crunchy.
- BIG prawns, and lots.
- We got the lamb. Not gamey. Could have mistaken it for beef, actually. Pretty tasty otherwise.
- Lots of onion and green peppers. And oil.
- Served cold.
- Sliced beef rolled in fun-chewy pancake.
- Two fairly large rolls, so price was OK and you could possibly get away with this as a light meal.
- Maybe a quarter or half duck, but a lot of bone. If you are not lucky, you won't get any meat on the bone you pick up.
- Bone is crispy enough that it's generally safe if you start chewing it up.
- Coated in so much sauce you might be tempted to ask for more duck with your sauce.
- Ping-pong ball sized.
- Thick skin.
- First two steamers of 5 had only one bao with any soup in it. We pointed it out and we asked for one more steamer (which they gave to us free, without our asking to take it off the bill). This time it was okay, but there were grumbles about the thickness of the skin.
- Go to Xu's upstairs in the food court (when they finish renovating, anyway). They are huge so it's a lot more fun with a lot more soup inside.
- Boring. You taste the sourness of some kind of preserved vegetable (Szechuan pickled mustard?) Has some sliced meat in it.
Overall food is okay with some standouts like the deep fried spicy prawns but could be hit or miss. Dishes felt like they were on the salty side. Price for portion OK -- we were 7 and our bill came under $13 per person.
Bonus - Waitress who can speak fluent English.
