We went for lunch on a cold windy day, and we got off to the right start when we were given a complimentary pot of tea while we perused the menu. Who knows how long free tea for lunch will last, but it was a great welcome on a cold day. The restaurant was a bit empty when we arrived, but by the time we left the dining area had filled with lunchtime diners, which we took as a very good sign for this relatively new restaurant. We ordered the Empire Eggroll, good but not great, the only small disappointment of our meal. Good flavor, but the pork, cabbage, and asparagus pieces are cut large enough they don't blend together, and they kept escaping from the egg roll. Nothing that some more judicious chopping won't fix. We had the Chinese roast pork appetizer, and we loved the sweet, crunchy coating on the thin pork slices. We ordered two specials of the day. The Ginger & Vegetable fried rice was delicious, with generous pieces of baby bok choi and asparagus and a wonderful ginger flavor. We asked the waitress whether we should order the Peking Duck steamed buns on the menu or the special Crispy Pork Belly steamed buns from the day's specials, and she said get the special because we can come back and order the standard menu items next time. The steamed buns were good, and the generous filling was even better: thick slabs of fatty pork belly cooked crispy on the outside with a sweet Chinese bbq sauce. Yum! We'll have to go back another day for the Peking Duck Buns. And we will go back!
