So I finally tried this place out, and I have to thank you, Barry, for the intel on the beef roll--Flavor Garden's blows 101 Noodle Express' out of the water!
So I started off with the pan-fried leek dumplings:
These were very tasty, with a nice crunch to them! The filling was plentiful, but a bit mild. I found I had to resort to pouring my condiments inside each dumpling, as the skins were a little too thick and crispy for effective dipping, but hey, I don't mind playing with my food a bit.
Next came the scallion pancake:
This was just okay. It was very crispy/crunchy, but also a bit greasy. Although I liked the visible amount of scallions, I find 101 Noodle Express to have a much more flavorful version of this dish.
Finally, the star of the meal:
Ooph! Look at that! And it's so tasty, too! Just completely overflowing with beef, with a touch of hoisin sauce. 101 Noodle Express has been unseated, but I will still go because their hours run much later.
Overall value is tops here, too--my total bill was under $25 for all this food, after tipping.
Next time I want to try their sesame rice balls.
