Service was okay, don't order American food in an Asian restaurant
We were starving and it was quite early on a Friday morning, so we wanted breakfast. This place was open early so we ventured in, my daughter especially wanting something and coffee. (I figured we had a better bet to get tea but she did persist). They had some lovely offerings of pre packaged bakery items and what appeared to be a breakfast sandwich (looked like some egg in there but also lettuce, go figure). We decided instead to sit at a table and be served instead of taking a to go package. Should have gone with the to go package. Language barrier might have caused the mishaps with ordering. My daughter did get the coffee but you don't get more than one spare cup. She said it was pretty good coffee. No sugar, no cream. The menu has both Chinese and English translations and they offered a ham and cheese omelet with hash browns. Wow, okay great. Not so much. We both ordered the ham and cheese omelet, me with quite a few misgivings. I should have gotten rice and noodles frankly. Mine arrived quite some time before my daughter's. In all appearance it might have been an omelet. It did have eggs surrounding something like sandwich meat type ham. The ham very very very sweet and had some kind of sauce inside (not cheese) that was kind of like sweet and sour. Horrible. Then while I'm picking at mine, my daughter's arrives and it is a sandwich with the crust cut off of the same kind of ham sandwich meat. That was it. Dry bread, no crusts and with ham inside. Again, horrible. I did get some lovely hot tea. We paid an extremely high price for this strange breakfast but I knew it wasn't a good idea to try to get American food in this restaurant in Chinatown so it was our own fault. Next time we'll eat Chinese for breakfast. Service was so-so, it took forever, we were there an hour and stared down the entire time. We had to go to the register to get the check. The restrooms were very nice and clean, however. That was a bonus. I would go here again, but much later in the day and only for Asian food.
