Highly recommended for people who never had pho,
Because they have pictures for each ingredients they used,
So at least you can take a look at it before you finally make up your mind and order something you can't even pronounce.
Part of the Menu-
Special Combo Pho-
I always use 3 slices of limes and 3 spoonful of chili sauce for my pho,
Not a correct way to eat it,
But who cares,
I love it.

Lunch at home!
I've been eating out these past few days,
I miss my not-so-good homemade meal.
Cindy's Simplified Zha Jiang Noodles-
Green bean sprouts
Shitake mushroom (sliced)
Bean curd (sliced)
Spicy soy bean paste (辣豆瓣醬)
Cilantro (if desired)
Sesame oil (if desired)
Drizzle some EVOO in the pan,
Toss the garlic and wait until it turns slightly brown.
Toss in ground pork,
Add some soy sauce, tiny tiny bit of salt, black pepper, and the bean paste.
Keep stirring till the pork is cooked and the sauce is half way absorbed by the meat,
Add all other ingredients in to the pan.
All you have to do now is simply wait till everything's cooked.
Don't forget to cook the noodles on the side,
And remember to add a little bit more soy sauce if eating with noodles.
Only add cilantro and sesame oil if desired.
Easy to make,
I finished the whole process in 40 minutes (from chopping, cooking, and eating),
One lazy meal.

I finally got out of that cycle.
Today, I'm having Japanese shabu shabu.
Ps. Shabu is the action when you "shake" the sliced meat in the pot.
Top: Goma Sauce (Sesame)
Right: Ponzu Sauce-
I always put a lot of scallions and Daikon (radish) in my ponzu sauce.
Along with a little bit of spicy oil,
Just my personal preference.
Just toss everything in the pot at once,
And you don't need to worry about it anymore.

Japanese shabu shabu,
Taiwanese shabu shabu,
They all taste awesome to me.
This place also serves sukiyaki,
But I never tried it here,
Never a big fan of sukiyaki.
PS. The service is good here, waiters and waitress always smile at you. Just you might have to wait a little bit longer when it gets busy at night.

Better than other places.

Good place for drinking beers.

I love movies,
And I love animals.
My legs are sore...
Mother and Son-
I think his neck is sore...
I guess they can't serve seals here...
(Treasure this moment....Less and less Polar Bears in the world due to global warming...sigh..)
Giant Panda:Take One-
So hard to get my food (frustrated)
Giant Panda:Take Two-
Whatever, I'll just eat it this way.
They hunt birds and mammals,
Sometimes even monkeys and small deers,
Strong bird indeed.
