  • Try the shao-bing with five spice beef sandwich! It's delicious!
  • Steamed buns, spring rolls, tea
  • Fantastic Taiwanese style brunch and some northern items too
  • One of the best Taiwanese Dim sum in town
  • Long lines on weekends. Get here earlier by at least 30-45 minutes
  • Arrive 20 or 30 mins before they open because the line gets really long really quickly.
  • On the weekends, the line starts at eleven.
  • If you like spicy, the #11 lunch special is awesome! #17 is also fantastic, and slightly more spicy.
  • #18 ribs with squash is best, but takes a while to prepare.
  • The moo-shi pork is great!
  • Go on weekends for the Taiwanese brunch. Classics like cruellers and soy milk are done really well. Best to arrive at 11:30 to beat the crowd.
