Any good Chinese food in SW austin?

Does anyone know a good,authentic or at least decent Chinese place for lunch near Mopac/360/290 area. I can do Taiwanese, Cantonese, whatever.

To get an idea of what I am after, I love Pao's but they are way out in Lakeway so that is out for lunch. Love Din Ho but it is kinda far north (although doable and very good). T&S is good but way up north. Coco's is good but up north or by campus is a bit of a pain to park. I was wondering someone knows of some other places.

800 Deg Oven

Does anyone have any thoughts on what to use if I want an 800 oven. I am going to redo my kitchen. One thing that would be cool would be an oven that could reach very high temp for pizza making. It seems even commercial pizza deck ovens only reach 650. Maybe it is a code/safety issues.

I am considering a few options:
Small industrial oven (used for tempering, for example) in addition to "normal"
Go with a "normal" oven and build a ceramic "oven in an oven" device.
Do some kind of wood fired deal. But those are much better outside than in.

Has anyone tackled this? I read one guy messed with the clean cycle of his oven to reach high temps.

Lunch time dum sum?

Does anyone know who does dum sum for lunch? I know a number of places that to it on weekends. TandS Seafood is very good for example, but only does dum sum on weekends.

Best Menudo in A-town

I think Juan in a Million was had pretty good menudo. Available everyday, not just weekends. I havent been there in a year or two however. I need to give La Tapatilla a try.
