  • We were supposed to go to nice, safe Phuong Trang with our book club, but at last minute, Jenne and I changed the location to Yes! Pingo because:We hadn’t tried it yet, and we’ve got a conquest to finish!! And
  • We thought the name Yes! Pingo was hilarious.  We like to yell it out loud in the car.  “YES!!!!!!  PINGO!!!!!!”
  • The server had lots of recommendations and suggested pork stomach soup to non-Asians!
  • They should have had descriptions for the dishes on the menu.
  • Some dishes were better than others.  For example, the fried noodles were too salty, and the boiled dumplings were bland.
  • But the chicken was beautifully fried and well seasoned.  The pork stew rice was also a favorite.
  • The best deal is definitely the chicken cutlet or crispy chicken combo!  You even get a little bit of the pork stew on the rice.  Veggies and pickles served on the side.
  • This place is like Tap Ex, only not so fast-foody.
