          Current (and ongoing) faves:
          Oriental Garden
          South China Garden
          Fuleen Seafood
          Ah Ping Snack Bar

          Not so fond of A-Wah as others are, scoopG linked to my review above so I won't go into details here. Suffice to say I went a second time because a friend insisted on trying it, and figured maybe I had hit them on an off night so why not? Well, awful again. Same complaints. Bland, boring. And they managed to serve us overcooked AND undercooked rice in the same meal.
