You could easily walk right past this place without noticing it. You would be missing out if you did. We stumbled upon it on a cool, rainy day and it was perfect - delicious comfort food. Highly recommended!

The new location is brighter and newer. I miss the floor seating. However, the food is awesome and the bubble teas are a nice addition to the menu. Super nice to see the family of staff being cute, doing their thing.

A different kind of comfort food in downtown Waco. We enjoyed the spring rolls, clay pots( both shrimp and chicken) and stir fried rice. Down to earth(no pun intended) eatery, casual vibe, friendly service and reasonable prices.

I'm sure they have dishes that you can request things be left out. My daughter is allergic to mushrooms and doesn't eat pork, they accomadated her requests with no problem.
