  1. its a really good muslim chinese restaurant.
    they recently purchased the store next to it and knocked down the wall to expand seating space. They also do a good amount of take out. Lots of chinese families eat there.

    i've always ordered different things there than I've ordered at fatima, so I can't make a direct comparison, except that their da4 bing3 (thick green onion pancake) is not as good.

    The main thing everyone goes to get (me included) is their xian4 bing3 (chinese hamburger - ground meat inside thin bun wrapper). It's pretty oily, but its definately worth a try, and the main reason why everyone goes, and it also reheats decently well.

    I don't remember much else about the last time I ate there, but I do recall a lot of people eating noodle soups (haven't tried it, and don't know if it was handpulled or not). Yelp has good suggestions on what to get too.
