Where does their red bean ice with oat milk rank?

The one quibble I had with my Siu Yeh (and if this was the one quibble, then I had a damn fine time overall) was that the ice should have been finer-grated here. The larger chunks of ice in my glass made for uneven melting, and threw off the overall balance of texture and tastes.

A post was merged into an existing topic: September 2021 Rundown

Are all of the tables and standing counters outside? Would you have been full if you didn’t do the supplements?

Yes, and yes.

The minced pork rice was OK - Anyways I think that for me, minced pork rice has always resided more squarely within the Macanese or Taiwan oeuvre, rather than Cantonese.

I love the almond jello and so got 2 of those. #EatYourFruitsAndAlmondsAndAgar
