On arriving, I noticed kerosene lamp decoration. I immediately found this odd. Apparently this was once a coffee shop with a western theme, which remains in part now. The menu was disappointing, and no I'm not going to ask for some "other menu." After struggling to find something that sounded good, I ordered green beans, mushrooms and chicken.
It was pretty good. The sauce had good flavour, the chicken good...the green beans weren't great, but they were tasty. I also ordered steamed rice, which seemed aged or something.
On emptying the rice into a box for take out, I found a bug (ant?) in the box. Alive. Yeah, rice has bugs...but it completely erased my appetite. It was probably nothing, but I am quite sensitive about these food safety matters.
The staff was friendly. They ate there after they closed, and some people (children? friends?) who were students talked about various Chinese centric subjects. How stereotypical. It was a weird setting, but they tried and it should be a decent meal if you order decently.
