Margarita and Islamic noodles
Apparently, there is a 'secret' item that is not on the menu called islamic noodles. I got that since B mentioned seeing it on review sites. On paper, it sounds like the Siam noodles without the peanut part. It's been described as Pad Thai with creamy coconut sauce, which I think seems pretty accurate. It came out way more sauced up than the Siam noodle (far plate in the picture), and quite delicious. I got mine with chicken, but shrimp (and I think it was beef) was also an option. I'd definitely give it a recommendation. 

As for the margarita, it was very thick. I consumed most of mine with a spoon. I tasted minimal alcohol, and felt as much; however, two of my fellow diners turned red from their drinks, so I guess there was some alcohol in it. It had a nice, thick texture, but it was a bit flavourless (and not enough alcohol) for me. (Like snow?) I would've preferred a stronger citrus base, preferably that of orange liqueur. 

Would I return? Yeah. It's a pretty easy go-to restaurant that almost everyone can enjoy. The location is convenient, the atmosphere is casual enough, and the price is decent. I might just stick to beer as my beverage next time, though.
