I (Miko) had a total girl-crush on the waitress. She was frickin' ADORABLE.
The default spice level is too intense for me -- I (Miko) would get everything mild next time. But I am also a huge wimp.
The pork was definitely the best dish.
The salmon was a little overdone.
This would be a good date spot.
The sticky rice had crunchy rice bits instead of the usual sesame seeds. God, these desserts are so tasty.
I (Miko) had never had Bua Loy before...and I would come back just to eat this. Mochi balls in sweet coconut milk with a hint of salt... So delicious...

Servers' recommendations: Hawaiian pizza. What we ordered: One slice of Hawaiian pizza.
Number in our party: 3 Final check amount: $3.78 Notes:
We were really not excited to try Rosa's Pizza -- when we try places on Convoy, we're usually in the mood for Asian cuisine.
It's a teeny place with nowhere to sit inside.
But it was surprisingly good! Neither of us are that big on pizza, but if wanted any, we would come here again.
It smelled delicious inside.
It had mini-X-factor. (A post explaining the X-factor is coming soon!)
