It's quiet at lunchtime. During my two visits no music, and no TV screen in sight, only soft conversation and soundless thumb-taps on mobile phones. I read a magazine, a literal page-turner.
Most folks got noodles, which arrived quickly, even though no two orders seemed alike. My order of 可樂雞, kělè jī, required 15-20 minutes, primarily to simmer on-the-bone chunks of chicken with soy sauce and the key ingredient, which added caramel color and sticky but tempered sweetness. Corn syrup or cane sugar, I couldn't say. Coke chicken ($10).
