Foursquare Tips

  • Food from Northeastern (dongbei) region of China. Come here for something different than your typical Cantonese or American Chinese places. Be prepared for a ton of spices and Sichuan peppercorns!
  • Go here for hot pots of lamb with tart cabbage, an astonishing array of Chinese charcuterie (the five-spice head cheese is wonderful), giant pan-fried pork buns and braised pork belly with corn cakes:
  • as many note, the savory, sweet and crunchy beef pancake is a must try. the spicy beef noodle soup is a fiery bowl of star anise, chilies and szechuan peppercorn that reminded me of xian-style noodles
  • Beef noodle soup, beef pancakes, pea shoots (dou miao) and fried tofu were all delicious.
  • Great / spicy Mongolian chicken
  • Get the beef pancake. So freakin' good.
  • Big and I mean BIG portions....their beef pancake is a must order!
  • Their specialty is food from Northeast China. I let my friend order since she is from Beijiing. We had fish, dumplings, this delicious soup with pork and silver rice noodles. And vegetables
  • Their hot pot was so hearty and tasty, and I didn't have to sit around cooking it myself. (I know, I know, that's part of the fun or something, whatever)
  • . . .
  • I really love their beef pancakes and the pork a la sichuan
