Great post! I agree, they do a decent job of appealing to both ABC and chinese clientele. And given the lack of similar restaurants in north county, it's nice having a decent option without driving down to Convoy.


sounds like a mixed bag but decent


It does make things convenient if you live in the area Jason.

It was Kat!

Does the acetone come from something used to preserve the jellyfish in or does the jellyfish have a compound that resembles acetone in flavor if overcooked/improperly prepared? Can only imagine that's a most unpleasant taste.


Again, I gotta give you a nod for trying a place more than enough times to test it out. What's the most amount of dishes you've ever ordered at one sitting when you dine alone (and want to test out a place)? I haven't been back to Chef Zhu but would love to try that Yin Doo Xin. That's unfortunate the other dishes weren't as great though.


That was a fun night! Glad that you are always up for ordering an inappropriately large amount of food.


Hi JS - I'm not sure, but it seems to me that when jellyfish is not prepared correctly, there's that flavor.

Well Faye, I wanted to do right by the place.

It always is Candice.....and I love that you always able to deal with my temporary insanity! ;o)

Noooo, not the rice! You were doing to well! You guys ordered the whole menu? I gotta give this place a try. I'm always looking for Chinese food up here.


Ha - I was wondering if you's actually read this post TFD!

I must have been busy when this first posted, but it brought back good memories of Shanghai City. I had forgotten about Ma Lan Tou, but I really like the dish. Thanks as always.


Hey Ed - If you like this post just wait until my next one....

You don't want the menu with a star on it. That's the 老外 menu. Make sure you get the real (starless) menu.
