Hubby brought home a menu from the new restaurant in Plaza Bugambilias (2nd floor by cinema) called Chopsticks. Their Asian Noodle Salad sounds like one of my NOB favorites. And their prices are reasonable. Has anyone tried their food?

I've had the cold noodle salad. It was excellent. A little pricey for me for lunch at $75. Dynamite peanut sauce.

What HelperGuy said. The salad and peanut sauce were delicious. A friend and I split it and an order of pot stickers which also were very good. I am going back next week to try something else.

Daily specials:

Yes we have also had the pot stickers, salad and the banh mi. All excellent. The owner is Betty Leung - she is only doing the Tuesday Market and has her peanut sauce along with the pot stickers, salad, steamed buns etc.

Wed - Banh Mi (Vietnamese Sub)
Thurs - Wonton Noodle Soup and Dim Sum
Fri - Vegetable Fried Rice and Gung Pau Chicken
Sat - Pho Bo (Vietnamese Beef Noodle Soup)

We also have pot stickers and asian salad bowls everyday.

My wife and I ate there two weeks ago and were not impressed. We had two orders of pot stickers and an order of won ton soup and the tab was 200 pesos or about fifteen USD.

The prices ARE high for a casual lunch. But, if I am in the middle of Mexico and need an Asian fix I will pay for it. Sometimes nothing but pot stickers will do.

We went there today, had Pho and it was good. $70 pesos for a portion that was just right. I was satisfied with my meal and the price.

The specials that Chillin mentioned are $ 35, $60 , $45 and $ 70 in that order. The Asian noodle salad is $70.00, Steamed Chinese buns $15.00'. And potstickers $40.00 - $ 45.00....that's it. They want to keep a simple menu . We want to try the noodle salad next.
I liked this place.

I love Asian food. I left the globos about 5 p.m. I wanted to try this new restaurant.  Unfortunately, everything I tried to order was not available.  First, I asked if they had any hot and sour soup. Then I asked for the steam pork buns. And then I tried to get pork potstickers. She had none of these items and it looks like on the menu there were only about 10 things. I will return on a different day and try again. But it looks like I should go to Min Wah if I want a bigger selection.

Well Papa the hours are from 11:30 to 5:00 so you got there at closing time...Today was a very busy day for them because of the gazillions of people at the globo event...and yep, there are about 10 things on the menu...but hot and sour soup is not one of them.

I am really liking this place. The wonton noodle soup we had yesterday was very tasty and filling. $60.00
The best thing on the menu for me is that Banh Mi sub sandwich, man that was a really good sammich...has a lot of different flavor s going On and the meat was really good. $35.00 .
I finally got to yry the steamed buns, not my thing I guess but they seem to be well prepared. You have to get there early for those.
Betty and Kwi are super nice people and they already have a good following there.

I'm glad folks are liking this place, but, seriously they are charging $C + prices. Ouch. You could compare the prices with "www.peacefulrestaurant.com". Check it out, and yes I do realize I am torturing y'all with this menu. Then again, it's not 50 and pissing rain there. Since "Diners, Drive Ins and Dives" did their thing on this joint they have opened two new locations - all excellent.
