Shop College Park Staff Picks
Michael – If you like spicy food I can’t recommend the Fiery Kungpao soy protein dish enough. Whenever I order takeout from here I make a few trips back and forth between my desk and the water cooler, which is a compliment I promise.
Jessica – For anyone who can’t get enough of them, Ovo’s dumplings earn an A+. My favorite entrée is the ginger scallion mushroom protein.
