We were just wondering if anyone has been lately? Looking for reviews and recommendations on the food...
Thanks.

    Eat there for lunch at least twice a month, always great. A little more than your typical take out place, but worth it. They also deliver now as well. I understand that the owners of Al Forno are regulars.

      Went to Mumu's last Tuesday, and I had a very good experience.

      It was not crowded at all, the service was good, and the food was great! Prices matched the quality/portions of the food.

      We ordered scallion pancakes and Xiao Long Bao (steamed broth dumplings) for appetizers. The scallion pancakes were perfectly crispy on the outside and a little doughy on the inside - had plenty of scallions. I was impressed that they had Xiao Long Bao because I had not really seen it outside of major cities' Chinatowns.

      For entrees we had beef with bamboo shoots and shitake mushrooms and the spicy chicken. They were both yummy. The spicy chicken was actually spicy, but I wish they had added at least one vegetable to the dish - it was pure chicken.

      It was my first time, and I would definitely go back again!

        Don't forget the pork. Anything with pork is amazing. I also love the scallion pancakes. It's never crowded which makes me nervous. I don't want them going out of business. I think the prices are reasonable for the quality and portions.

          I went to MuMu's for dinner about three weeks ago. We had no problems getting a table for four on a Thursday night (walk-in without reservations). I love MuMu's. We had the Xiao Long Bao (wonderful), a beef and three chili dish (wonderful and spicy-hot - I love this dish), Lemon Chicken (moist, light sauce, chicken was very tender), Shrimp Chow-Fun (I didn't try this) and Green Tee Fried Rice with bacon (not very greasy, nice taste). There were two other items that are escaping me right now. Service was great.

                  I agree with this statement about prices and quality. Worth the little more you pay. Hungry - I havent' tired the crispy beef, but will make that my next dish at MuMu. Thanks for the tip. The pineapple fried rice is really good too.
