Any sandwich can also be made into a wrap for those with a fear of cylindrical objects caused by H.G. Wells ($5.59).
Medleys of fried rice, noodles, and seared meats fill the air with flavorful aromas as Good China's chefs toss them in woks over intense heat. The quick-searing process helps to preserve tenderness in everything from pork and chicken to scallops and shrimp, all tossed in a variety of sauces such as sweet ‘n’ sour, orange, and garlic. In addition to a roster of kung paos, chow meins, and other Chinese favorites, the chefs craft several of their own specialties. The Seven Stars & A Moon hides scallops, shrimp, and crabmeat beneath a fried egg, and the Happy Family dish crowds shrimp, chicken, pork, and vegetables into brown sauce and strife-free portraits.
CiCi’s Pizza combines the variety of a family-friendly buffet with the thrill of bottomless pizza.

The buffet is stocked with a plethora of fresh pastas, such as cavatappi noodles with classic marinara or alfredo sauce, as well as fully customizable signature salads. After they've feasted on savory options, diners can revisit the buffet for dessert including freshly baked brownies, slices of apple pizza, and cinnamon rolls drizzled with icing—or they can eat dessert first, thereby tearing an irreparable hole in the space-time continuum.
