      Yup. And Pao's Mandarin House. arp07, if you do a board search on any of these, you should find plenty of info.

      Another vote for Din Ho
      1st Chinese BBQ

      Asia Market is like traveling to another planet for me, so I've never been there.

        I don't know what your starting point is but given your 2 top choices you're probably north of downtown already and it's only 7 miles from Din Ho to Asia Market.

          My starting point is San Leana, TX. And I'm riding Capital Metro - which doesn't offer many convenient choices to get to Asia Market/Cafe.

            I think ridgeback's point is that if you can make it, (car, Cap Metro, bike or donkey), to Din Ho and 1st Chinese in your pursuit of good chow, that you can, and should, consider Asia Market to be on your very own planet. I note that the 383, 983, 984, 986, and 987 routes stop very close to the Spicewood Springs/183 intersection. HIGHLY suggest to sqwertz, and the op, that you don't miss this gem.

        I agree about Asia Market. Well worth the trip and cheap to boot.
