I was looking for somewhere to eat that wasn't pizza or a fast-food chain and saw this restaurant near downtown. I all-of-a-sudden had a craving for hot & sour soup so I stopped in. They weren't busy (Thursday night). They had all the usual Chinese buffet items. I figured so many were dried out because they weren't that busy and... More
