|Biang biang noodles -- so tasty, so spicy, so hard to eat elegantly...|
|The Fresh Three Flavor -- the three flavors are eggplant, potato, and bell pepper. And deliciousness.|
|We were surprised that the shrimp dumplings came out in a soup! |
But we liked the soup. It was sort of smoky-vinegary.

- We had a feeling this place would be good when we walked in and saw that:
- The place was busy at 1:25 PM on a Friday. Everyone was happily eating from giant platters of food.
- The captions for the photos of menu items on the wall were in Chinese. No numbers or English translations.
- We looked around, and it seemed we were the only American-born people in the entire restaurant. Jenne was certainly the lone white person.
