  • The server was very informative and pleasant!  The restaurant was clean and bright too.
  • It was fine…but the food was not amazing. Maybe we had really high expectations, since we’d heard that the LA location had Anthony Bourdain’s stamp of approval.
  • We found the dumplings a bit too vegetable-heavy.  You know what makes
  • dumplings good?  Fat.  Preferably pork fat.  We want dumpling filling to require minimal chewing, and these had so much of the fibrous greens in it.
  • We didn’t feel satisfied and ended up getting a large order of fries at a brewery an hour and a half later.

Ahh, look at this fresh and healthy filling!  So…unsatisfying.
