Timothy D., who was among the first Yelpers to review the new spot on February 12th, said: "Been waiting on this place to open for a while, as it's in a bit of food desert. I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the pork belly bun. Great portion size (for $4), with lots of texture."

Yelper Carla C. added: "I am always looking for vegan options. Proong has a few: steamed broccoli, vegetable and tofu ramen soup and a fabulous tofu bun, which is like a soft white bun wrapped around a slab lightly fried or sauteed tofu with radish and pickle. Loved this: very unusual and only $4."
