"Asian Café Express serves up Hong Kong-style five-spice beef and hot pots" (August 28, 2008)
Phoenix Rail Food (April 24, 2007)

Asian Cafe Express
For decades, Michael Leung attracted fans of Chinatown-quality food at Gourmet House of Hong Kong. Now he's doing it at Asian Cafe Express.
It's a bare-bones place, with plastic seats and daily specials written in English and Chinese on the walls. But there's nothing bare-bones about the authentic, budget-priced food.
Zero in on hearty specialty soups like Hong Kong-style preserved vegetable and pork or Taiwanese ground pork and noodle, each a meal in a bowl.
Look for minced-pork eggplant hot pot, five-spice pork, deep-fried whole shrimp and superb noodles, especially the beef chow fun and squid chow mein in black bean sauce.
