Not your usual coffeshop outlet. Food is primarily Cantonese fare and for that they do it very well (Cantonese person here). Their roast pork is so good that I eat it without sauce. Same with their roast duck and roast chicken. So tender and juicy, especially in the morning, that I almost always decline sauce. Why mask a good thing. If sauce you must, put it on the side. Their soups are also very good with generous bits of veggies and a few pork ribs. My favorite is their shrimp wonton noodle soup (soup, of course, for us Cantonese). A couple of healthy choisum with springy egg noodles and 4 good sized shrimp wrapped in wonton skins for $3. Also their Kopi of all sorts, including YingYang is my favorite in the hood. Robust in flavor even when iced.
I often will buy half a chicken in the mornings and it disappears bit by bit often not making it to it's intended lunch appointment. It's some of most tender chicken I've had outside a high end cantonese dining experience.
I usually don't opt for veggies as it's much cheaper and healthier to cook veggies at home.
Their roast duck it to die for and sell lots of it. If you get it as a rice or noodle dish, the portions are typical. Go for half a bird as it's well worth it.
This is my neighborhood go to place to get my Cantonese food fix! (Hide
