  • We didn’t recognize a lot of items on the menu.
  • It’s VERY quiet.  There’s not even music!
  • The luncheon meat in the hotpot was delish.  Like firm slices of Spam.  Yum.
  • Jenne liked the broth a lot.  I (Miko) wasn’t crazy about it.  It has a slight bitter note.
  • Fried pork in stew!  That is interesting and unexpected.
  • The mystery meat pot reminds me a bit of our experience at Gorilla, but without the pounding music.
  • The staff is very nice.  They have a Brita filter for their water jug, which is a nice, thoughtful detail.
  • The boiled peanuts are tasty.
  • The little details are very cute — the coasters, glasses, trivets.
