    Although this place is only a couple of blocks from my house, I find myself gravitating more to Chiang's than I do Snappy.
    When I first moved to the neighborhood I recall the joy I had over a local Chinese restaurant being nearby. Unfortunately with each visit I enjoyed it less and less.
    If you want homemade noodles this is a nice spot, but if you are a vegetarian I would suggest Chiang's.

    I can't review everything about Snappy Dragon, as I've only eaten one specific dish every time I've eaten there. But I can review that dish: Chicken Chow Mien with the homemade egg noodles. My verdict: delicious. In all honesty, the chicken component is rather bland and dry, but the veggies are great and the noodles, fantastic! I damn near ate the entire take-out box, I was that in love with it.
