I've been going to this restaurant since I was about 12. My crazy uncles initiated me to the place. And one of the first things I had there was, what we refer to as "the white things". It's listed on the menu as "steamed rice noodle". You can get it with BBQ pork, Beef or shrimp. I have been patheticaly addicted to these things ever since. Load them up with hot sauce, wow what a treat. I believe the dish is called Chee Cheong Fun (please correct me if I'm wrong) but it's not listed as that on the menu. I haven't found this dish anywhere else. It's basically a wide (about 5") rice noodle maybe about 1/8" thick wrapped around the filling of your choice (BBQ pork, Beef or shrimp). It's served in a small dish in a sort of sweet soy sauce. I'm not sure what the mixture is, hoisin and something else to thin it out maybe?... Anyways, it's very very very addictive, be warned!!!!

I think it was the BBQ hanging in the window that drew me to this place. I decided to grab some take out on my way home from class.

The dining room looks like your typical 1970's Chinese restaurant. Not bad just a little dated. I noted numerous Chinese specials written on white boards but only a few were translated into English.

I know I should be ordering Dim Sum on a weekend at lunch but I always work weekends, so I decided to order a few items. Shrimp Shu mei, pork shu mei, shrimp dumplings and some chive and shrimp dumplings.

I also ordered crystal shrimp and salt and pepper squid, which is listed under house specials.

All the dumplings were about average price ($3.25-3.75) The pork shu mei were quite good and meaty and the shrimp dumplings were tasty but the dough was a little on the thick side. The shrimp shu mei tasted more of a heavily pureed shrimp paste and they seemed to be a bit "under steamed."

The chive and shrimp dumpling tasted more of chive and chinese greens than of shrimp. They weren't necessarily bad, just not what I expected.

The crystal shrimp( $14.50) were just shrimp in a clear sauce plated on a bit of lettuce. The shrimp were nicely cooked and quite a nice size.I would say the portion was adequate considering there were no vegetables or starches to bulk up the dish. Although nicely cooked, I found the MSG in this dish overwhelming.

The salt and pepper squid was good except again, heavy on the MSG. I thought the portion of this dish was a little small (11.50) compared to what I have received at other restaurants.

The food was reasonable but for the same price, there are other, better options.

Service was friendly and the clientele seems quite eclectic- probably due to the location.

Tasty Chinese take-out. They also have a small eat-in area. The dumplings are fantastic, as is the Fuk-yin fried rice. Everything is flavourful and lively - Nothing like your typical food-court style Chinese food. My favourite is the Mo-she pancakes and they don't disappoint. Shrimps in lobster sauce is also fab.

Delivery takes about 45 minutes to an hour...sometimes a little too long, especially if you're hungry. I had one experience ordering from them when they didn't show up at all! I was furious and disappointed, but gave them another chance and haven't had any problems since.

The GT's chicken was pretty good here. We like it a little spicier but it was certainly better than average. Worth ordering if you're a fan of it.

This version is less breaded than most and actually spicy, a refreshing change. Most General Tao chicken are too sweet. This was served on a bed of broccoli which is similar to the "original" version of General Tso that originated from California, according to the documentary "In Search of General Tso".
