It's very close to the office so I thought to meet up with my mom there next week. I now had a look at the menue and am overwhelmed. Too many choices!!!

I've heard the salt and pepper shrimps are good, also the squab in lettuce wrap.

Anything else?

Thanks a lot!

    If there are at least 2 of you--go for the Peking Duck--it's two courses--first the meat/skin wrapped in thin pancakes and then the left over meat from the carcass mixed in with a noodle/veg dish. Actually, the salt and pepper shrimp are ok, nothing spectacular imo.

      If Calvin is around (older gentleman) just make him your friend and ask him. He's a bit phlegmatic, but a pretty good guide.

        I think the seafood, particulary crab/shelfish dishes are particularly good there.
