|Stewed beef cubes, "dry", with noodles|
Getting to know how and what to order wasn't a straightforward process, but you can get the hang of it pretty quickly. One chooses either a soup or a "dry" (which is actually a little soupy) entree and "profile", three of which are spicy and one non-spicy "original". I'd give the spiciness level about a six out of ten.

The boys liked their dish (stewed beef cubes), though, especially the chewy noodles. We found out mid-way through dinner that the boys weren't really full and wanted more noodles. So, the staff gave them some more noodles on the house (!). Jenny went with the braised beef. She liked it but wasn't wowed. For a hot Asian soup, she prefers Wuji's Mala House in San Jose.
We left a little regretfully, though, as the restaurant was pretty empty even in the middle of dinner hour on a Saturday night. So, if you're hungry in Cupertino and don't want to wait, drop by GuoCui!
