A complete Filipino grocery with a thriving turo-turo steam table scene as well. Shoppers tend to get prepared food to go with their cooking supplies, and many call ahead for family-sized portions.
Have it your way, the Mongolian way. Choose your meat, choose your vegetables and sauce, and they'll fry it all up before your eyes. Hey, don't we go to restaurants to have someone more skilled than ourselves make the meal? On the other hand, how much culinary refinement do you usually get for $5? (Dinners are $7.50).
This is more of a turo-turo steam table cafe and bakery than a grocery store, but they have a loyal following, especially for the luscious baked goods. Eat in or take out.
The mind-boggling array of authentic Chinese- and Vietnamese-style dishes places an emphasis on variety. The family that brought you Tien Hong here provides a clean, friendly environment and hard-to-beat prices.
