    • Place is just about right so there is enough space but there can be a bit of a wait as this place is quite popular.
    • Service was quite good and fast, though the Fried Rice took ages before it arrived and served last (we should have prolly told them to serve it first).
    • We ordered the following:
      • Original dry-fried Chicken Wings
        • This is a must-try as people come here for the chicken wings!
        • Reminded me of Bon-chon! Kinda Sweet (not really spicy) and crispy! Yummmm! But I guess slightly better than Bonchon chicken since it is less sweet and prolly more "meaty".
          • This is what Michelin Guide tells us
          • If you don't know what to order, just repeat after us: dry-fried chicken wings. Tossed in a chili-flecked ginger glaze, they're the reason foodies flock to this tasty, Americanized Chinese spot, write their names on a whiteboard, endure a long wait on the sidewalk, and finally eat at a communal table with strangers. It's all part of the restaurant's ramshackle appeal (as are the ultra-affordable prices). Even if poultry's not your thing, the menu's other offerings are well worth the effort it takes to eat here. Dry-fried prawns are tossed in a sweet-and-spicy chili-garlic sauce, and hot and salty twice-cooked pork is fried with a heap of bell peppers and dried red chilies. Tables turn fast, so don't plan to linger-but for a filling meal, this one's a winner.
      • Sauteed String Beans
        • Cooked really well - crunchy and just perfect.  The only thing that I don't like is that it is kinda sweet.. not sure if they added some Honey or sugar in it. 
      • Black Bean Noodles
        • It was quite interesting .. I guess it tasted slightly different because they mixed Taro with it.
      • Combinnation Fried Rice
        • Shrimp, Beef, Chicken,, etc - Not really good. Skip this - tasted like Fried rice that you can buy from cheap Chinese fast food place.  I even think Panda Express Fried rice is better.
      • Pot stickers
        • Quite good and huge... worth it!
      • Sizzling Rice Soup
        • It was quite interesting and good. Make sure you prepare your video camera when they are putting the crispy rice on the clear soup as you will hear it "sizzle"
