Savory Cumin Lamb Burger

Savory Cumin Lamb Burger

The cumin flavor was pretty strong. The meat was nice and tender. I loved the dough— my only complaint is that the dough seemed a bit stale. Nevertheless, it was yummy. I could’ve eaten two of these and been full. ($2.50)

Mount Qi Vegetables on Hand Pulled Noodles

Mt Qi Veggies on Hand Pulled Noodles 

These were delicious as well! However, if you can’t handle spicy foods, DO NOT GET IT IN SPICY! A. and I both have a fairly good tolerance for spicy stuff, and it got really tough by the end. I wasn’t sure what all the veggies (carrots, potatoes, mushrooms, lots of other random stuff) were, to be honest, but the broth was good, and I liked the noodles. ($6.00) 

I will definitely be back there! It’s a nice cheap, delicious meal. The two of us ate for only $10.50, and we were pretty full.
