Sun’s Kitchen

I was in a rush this past Friday evening so I got take out from Sun’s Kitchen. It’s located on the second floor of Pacific Mall. It’s in the inner food court rather than the food court close to the escalators. They make the noodles right there so you’re guaranteed fresh noodles every time. You could see the chef making the noodles from scratch with the dough by the counter. The options include BBQ pork noodles in soup, dan dan noodles, beef tendon noodles in soup, wonton noodles in soup and BBQ duck noodles in soup. I had the beef brisket noodles (la mian) in soup ($6.75 including tax).

The dish comprises of beef brisket, afew pieces of shanghai bok choi, la mian/noodles and chicken broth. It also comes with soy bean milk. The beef brisket was tender and the noodles were delicious. If you’re at Pacific Mall or Market Village and unsure of what to eat, you could easily and cheaply satisfy any noodle craving here.

Hog’s Tail BBQ

I usually get take-out from Hog’s Tail and it’s usually purely meat in a take-out container. I usually get their 1lb of pulled pork ($10) although I’ve had their 1lb of beef brisket ($11) and their ribs ($12/20) before. I’ve also tried their Catfish Louisiana Po’Boy ($11). They were all tasty.¬†However, my friend and I decided to dine in in April after our history of always getting take-out.

We split an appetizer called Chicken and Andouille Gumbo ($7). It is a stew comprised of chicken, Andouille sausage, peppers, onions, celery, okra and rice and it comes with a square of cornbread. It’s quite tasty.

We both got the 2 meat and 2 sides sampler platter which also comes with a slice of cornbread ($17). My friend had pulled pork, beef brisket, coleslaw and braised collard greens. My friend didn’t like their beef brisket for that particular meal since it wasn’t as soft and tender as the ones he had before. However he liked the pulled pork, coleslaw and collard greens.

I decided to try their pig tails, jalapeno hush puppies and Carolina stone ground grits. I also had their ribs. I liked their jalapeno hush puppies and their ribs. I discovered that I’m not a fan of pig tails and grits. I wasn’t able to finish my meal so I had leftovers for brunch and dinner for the next day.
