We also serve rice with curry chicken, as well as wok bang beef with rice. For those who like spicy food, and we have noodle beef stew.”

Phan said the restaurant also will feature appetizers, such as egg rolls, spring rolls and crab rangoon.

“We also offer boba tea of some of the famous flavors,” Phan said. “We also have fruit smoothies to cool you down during these hot summer days.”

The restaurant currently has five employees, but it is still hiring.
