Not as meaty or balanced as their wonton counterparts.

Gorgeously purple and orange Eggplant in Garlic Sauce with its very mild seasoning was one of the most enjoyable dishes on the table.
Spicy Crispy Cucumbers ($6.95)

The wontons, with their thin, slippery skins and sweet pork filling are great when they come out hot and still fantastic when they've been sitting on the table for half the meal (I can even confirm that they taste great cold, out of the fridge at 2 a.m.).

Long Pepper Beef ($15.95)

It has a mildness and inoffensive sweet soy flavor that would have been more at home at Shun Lee Palace.

Mapo Tofu ($11.95)
