⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ "Don’t often write reviews, but was thoroughly impressed with my visit to 2nd Language and wanted to share. Overall the atmosphere was great. Wait staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. My fiancé is vegan, and we knew going in there would be options for her - but she always has plenty of questions too. The waitress did a really good job laying out the menu and pointing her in the right direction, which was greatly appreciated. Most importantly the food was excellent. Our group wanted to try a bit of everything, and honestly loved every item we had. I started off with the pork belly steamed buns and worked my way to the Tan Tan ramen (super flavorful!) I especially loved the Hot Asian Chicken Sando though - we actually got it for a few of us to share, but after the first bite I wanted it all to myself! Oh, and leave room for dessert… believe me when I say the Honey Toast is to die for. SO GOOD! Already planning our next visit." - Noah
