We drive a beautiful black Luxury Mercedes tour van, air-conditioned and very comfortable.

So many new foods to try!

We got to try lots of new items in Chinatown. I especially loved the apple banana lumpia. That was something I probably wouldn't have tried on my own. The fresh rice noodles were delicious as well, especially with Matthew's sauce on top.More
