We were there on a Saturday afternoon. I was sure that they'd be closed since it seemed that most of their business would be from offices around which were not working on Saturdays. But there were at least two tables occupied. We were seated at a corner table.

For the most part we let our friends order since they have been there before. I only suggested the garlic green bean for the veggie dish. Apparently the place was popular for their siao long bao (little dragon dumpling) which is one of the popular Shanghainese dish. The kids love their stir fry noodle which was made with a really thick almost squarish noodle. One of a dish from their special was stir fry Buddha's palm squash (aka chayote) with julienned lotus root. Which would have been lovely because I like chayote but this dish came out last and it was so greasy that I felt so tired of it after two bites of it.

This establishment is a restaurant and also a bakery. Not sure if they actually baked all those meringues, macaroons, cookies, etc. Or they just provided a space to sell them. The business could have looked better if they put more effort into a bit reorganizing. Not sure how the business is doing normally but we were there on Saturday afternoon and there were only like 4-5 tables occupied with around 10 customers all together.

I am glad I found the recipe for gluten free pizza crust. This recipe came from Dana The Minimalist Baker.

|Pad see ew - stir fried rice noodle with chicken|
We drove across the street and walked in the restaurant. I immediately noticed they have a raised platform on the left hand side that allow patrons the option to have the feel of sitting on a lower table seating experience with a hole below. It's sort of tatami seating in Japanese restaurant but with no cramp legs while eating your food. It's pretty neat idea though nobody were seating there that day.
