Yenching

In the past couple years I've really enjoyed the Chinatown dim sum, but kind of gone off other Chinese food. I'd like Zoe's near me at first, but got disappointed by later dishes. Hei La Moon, one of the great dim sum places, provided very bland soup and dinner entree, at least the one time, and I've heard a similar complaint Emperor Garden. The menu at Mary Chung's has tended to not inspire me, and a few dishes I recall are meh: the potstickers are too thick in the pastry shell, the velvet chicken is more egg than chicken and really off-putting (though not eating it all at once might help.)

Recently I went to Yenching again with my GM, then again tonight, and it's rekindling my love for the food. Last time was Szechuan rice with chicken; rice a bit dry, but overall tasty. Tonight potstickers (excuse me, "Pekiing ravioli", because Boston), pork wontons, and Szechuan meat sauce noodles. (My GM had ordered those, so I knew it'd be good.) The potstickers are pretty good for Chinese style, and the wontons are big and good though weird, swimming in a spicy peanut sauce. I like that.

So, yay.
