  • Cash only, bros
  • The steak and egg breakfast had me in a tizzy! Really good!
  • Great little Hong Kong style cafe (only open for breakfast and lunch). Try the chashu pork over rice, fried pork chops, or my fave--corned beef hash (just like my Filipino grandma used to make!)
  • Try the corn beef and hash & this is possibly the only place you can pair it with fried rice for breakfast!
  • Cool now the take credit cards. ...
  • No longer cash only, but 15 minimum
  • Broccoli beef with steamed rice.
  • Steak and eggs for $11 is amaaaaaaxing. Love the chow mein, and fried chicken wings My goal is to eat everything in the menu
  • As good as they say it is.. Best cheap meal in DTLA. Got the spicy pork ribs with fried rice.
  • Got the steak and eggs breakfast :) got fried rice and scrambled eggs with mine, medium rare cook. Fried rice was a bit bland so I added Sriracha and salt, steak was juicy, coffee is decent
  • Breakfast combos
  • Steak eggs for $11 with fried rice is amazing. Steak has Asian kick. Steak is huge - could only finish 3/4 of it
  • Steak and eggs, Thai iced tea and pancakes best breakfast meal ever.
  • One of Los Angeles' best diners!
  • American diner food & Chinese food is the best food combo since Reese's combined chocolate & peanut butter. I had spicy pork chops which were great. Nice people too. I am now a fan & will be back soon
  • A small restaurant. The pork chops here are really good an American breakfast with Chinese flavors.
  • Get them spicy pork chops
  • They have good shrimp wonton soup
