  1. Thanks for the report! What sorts of ready-made dishes did they have?

    The chicken noodle salad looks really good.

      no ready-made dishes, all made when you order. Best to call it in & take it to-go doing busy times, only about 7 tables in the tiny restaurant.

    2. We tried this yesterday. Very tasty, fresh and reasonably priced. I particularly liked the garlic noodles. They didn't look like much, but they had a nice, strong garlic taste.

        Martin, did you go on Sun or Mon, because I thought they were closed on Mon.

          Sorry, we went Sunday, not Monday. Got confused by the holiday.

      2. 2nd time visit:

        M1. Chicken noodle soup $6.99 - huge bowl of fat rice noodles in soup w/ round chunks of ground up chicken/fish/egg mashed together. I liked it lots!

        M3. Pork Noodle Soup $5.99 - I changed the noodles to spaghetti because I liked it last time, but it's really better w/ the fat rice noodles. Minced pork meatballs tiny w/ some green onions, fish balls, soup, & noodles. I liked it ok.

        Lady told me you can get Fish Chowder Soup Fri-Sun, not sure how many they make, ask for it, not on the printed menu.

        I want Tea Leaf Salad - I'll keep asking them, maybe they'll make it one day.
