It's tiny, just a single table and three seats pressed against a small ledge. The kitchen, which you can see into from the front counter, is larger than the dining area, a flurry of woks and frenzied cooking. Menu items are illuminated on the wall, the standard assortment of cheap Chinese classics with some soul food thrown in for good measure. All your childhood favorites are here: sweet and sour pork, General Tso's chicken, chow mein, fried rice and more than a hundred others. House specialties include fried chicken wings, rib tips with black bean sauce, fried crab sticks and chicken nuggets. The special "Health Food" section of the menu promises dishes sans salt, sugar, MSG and corn starch. Pay by credit card or utilize the ATM machine located just past the door. If dingy tile and cramped quarters aren't your thing, you can always get your food delivered with a minimum order of $7.—Keith Wagstaff
