https://www.alexandriatsimyung.com/ We got delivery from here last night. I knew as soon as I saw the menu that I was not going to be thrilled with this place. There are much better Asian options on Door Dash, but Hubby wanted American Chinese food and picked this place (Maybe I should have gone with a sub. I jest.). I don't really like American Chinese food, it's not really my thing. So I got vegetable lo mein, because well, at least I could spruce it up a bit at home. They had combination lo mein, but their website menu nor the Door Dash explained if this was a meat and veggie or multiple meats, so I just stuck to veggie. To me the noodles were overcooked and didn't have enough bite, but the veggies were fine. I added some roasted lotus root and other veggies I had in the fridge, and topped it with some sriracha sauce, which made it better. Hubby got beef and broccoli and woofed it down, so it couldn't have been horrible. I am sure this place is perfectly fine for most people to get delivery Chinese. And maybe there are some items that actually are good that I just don't know about... But I likely won't order from here often enough to find out.
We tried the TNR cafe the other night, and it was really not that bad. It may be a step up from just your local carry out, we will see in the coming weeks if that's true. The fried dumplings I had were very good. The owner's mother, who was waiting on tables give us a sampling of their ice cream, which was not made in house but very good. The coconut and lychee were very good! As for courthouse there really is no stand out restaurant, come to think of it, the only real star on Wilson Blvd. is Ray's. I do love the area inspite of it's lack of great places to eat, and diversity amoung it's residents.
