I decided to start a new post since the openings/closings post was getting long. Was motivated because we tried O Mandarin for lunch the other day. It was a good experience. We weren’t all that hungry so just shared three dim sum/appetizers: cilantro flounder rolls, cucumber salad and pan fried pork dumplings. The flounder rolls were like spring rolls and not at all greasy. The cuke salad was refreshing (but spicy.). The dumplings, which happen to be a favorite thing of mine, had the least tough outsides of any I’ve ever had. The decor is very attractive, service was good, but I was thrown by so many non-Asian staff. We’ll certainly go back soon to try other parts of the menu.
Another place we have been to a few times now is Kishuya Ramen Noodle Bar, on Central Ave, a bit south of the 4 corners (near Hurricane Wings, Harmon, etc.). We sometimes get in the mood for this type of food (more often in cool weather) and we like this place.
