Review: Alleluia Cafe

by gigi on February 26, 2008

It was Valentine’s Day so Jenkins and I went to Alleluia Cafe.    Alleluia is a Hong Kong-style cafe in Richmond that is well-known for their cheap and tasty dishes.  We had only been here once before and had enjoyed it a lot but because of its long line-ups, we never ventured back.  I guess […]
