Mr. Chili Noodle House Hot & Sour Potato Vermicelli

Mr. Chili Noodle House

The other day I was channeling the mantra of “Do one thing a day that scares you”. I decided to get a AXKA voucher for a meal for one to Mr Chili Noodle House and headed there for a lunch date with myself. With the voucher ($9.99) you get to pick from 3 noodle dishes, […]

Private Home Chinese Cuisine 一点心意
