Downtown Grand is revamping its dining options and adding some new deals to the mix.

Hand-pulled noodles, dim sum, spicy mini-wontons with garlic sauce, crispy beef with carrots, Sichuan fish in spicy garlic sauce and Ma Po tofu with minced beef or pork all appear on the lunch and dinner menus.
The restaurant also serves breakfast all day.
New lunch and dinner offerings include "Hangover" oxtail soup, a jalapeño burger and a crispy fish sandwich are just some of the new items on the menu there.
