Favs: everything! I don’t think there was anything I do not like here. What’s not to like? Fish? Gooood. Blood sausage? Gooood. Mango with sticky rice? Goood.

I don’t think you can go wrong with picking any of the dishes here. Come early as they get busy real quick.

Warning for the people with seafood allergies: they put it in just about everything, even if it’s not labelled. Shrimp paste/flavoring is a common ingredient, even in the vegetables. Be careful!

$8.99 for a heaping of chicken, a bowl of rice, some cucumbers, daikon soup and one canned drink is a bargain. I passed by Eim Elmhurst this weekend on my way to get a haircut in Elmhurst. Due to the derailment of the F train, I had to take a 7 and walk about a mile to the salon. Since it was such a nice day, it gave me a chance to check out a bunch of the stores on the way there! The chicken was moist and great with the mild spicy sauce. The ginger rice and gizzards were a bonus addition to the dish. I would definitely come by again for Hainanese chicken the next time I am in the area.
