    Tasty Ramen but the restaurant itself feels only half-authentic, and prices are a bit high. If you are just in it for the Ramen, you can get it elsewhere way cheaper and with a more "Japanese" feel. -- Martin Weigert via Foursquare

    I love the garlic or everything bagels myself. Usually get the veggie or just cream cheese and heirloom tomato. I had the fried chicken once. Amazing but more than I want on my way to work. -- Jason C. via Foursquare

    Avoid the Breakfast Burrito at Donna's Tamales - the vegetables feel mushy, can't really distinguish anything... Underwhelming :-/ -- Krys Freeman via Foursquare

    Awesome place for Chicken and Waffles. Be sure to ask for the pieces you want (ie) breast, thigh, leg... If you have a late brunch past 12:00 Noon seating is quicker. -- Rudy Recile via Foursquare

    The Shan Dong special dumplings w/pork and veggies. Another close must are the pork and leeks dumplings. And get the sautéed pea sprouts and dry braised green beans too :D -- mayu-chan via Foursquare

    the tea leaf salad is amazing. The highlights of the salad are the nuts, fried garlic and the tea leaf paste. Also had the chicken with basil; the sauce was spicy but had a sweet consistency -- Mike Ciulis via Foursquare
