Happy December everyone! I can't believe that 2015 is approaching near. Can you?

So it was a month ago that Will took me to a hole in the wall, food spot in Chinatown that he frequented before we started dating. I heard a lot of great things about this little food spot so Will and I finally got around to visiting it.

The restaurant is split into two stores, but one is take-out and one is dine-in. The dine-in section wasn't that big, but it's big enough. It looked very new, clean, and cozy. The waitress greeted us and took our orders and within 5 minutes our food comes out.

Pork Chop over Rice
Will ordered one of their most famous menu items - Pork Chop over Rice ($5.00). There's a 50 cent charge for an egg, so without the egg it would be $4.50. I tried a small piece of the pork chop and it wasn't dry or overcooked which I liked. It had a slight crisp and crunch to it.

Hot & Sour Soup
Will also ordered the hot and sour soup ($1.75).

Chicken Leg over Rice
I ordered one of the popular menu items too - Chicken Leg over Rice ($5.00). I really enjoyed the chicken leg because it was seasoned just right, moist, tender, and had a nice crunch to it.

There's a special sauce the chefs use too, but don't know what's in it or what it is, but all I know it was delicious! It was bomb! I'm not sure what vegetables were served either, but tastes like preserved cabbage. 

All in all, it was a fun and enjoyable experience. The food was cheap and yummy! I could really go for this again. Much thanks to my boyfriend for taking and introducing me to May Wah!
