Yum fatty fat! Just to be clear, the chef is from VK
Not Village North, right? I think your first VK link goes to a VN writeup
While the others link to VK. Anyway, liked the original VK so happy to have another version closer to where I live. Thanks and Happy New Year!


I know for sure that the owner is a former partner in VK RD. Check them out and let me know how you liked it.


Looks good!


This was pretty good Junichi! I was pleasantly surprised.




This place was pretty good Kat!


i never made it to village kitchen but hope to stop by here since it's in my neighborhood. all your dishes look like items i've never tried but i ought to try something new? i still feel like i'd be ordering like that teenager. gotta bring a parent with me!


Definitely drop on by and check them out Lynn!


I'm going to ask a dumb question but are there menus in English for someone wanting to try something different in Chinese food but not wanting to pick randomly?

Any other dishes you may suggest for a novice to try besides obviously pork lard :)


Not to worry Loren - The menu is in English as well.....with major photos. I think you should probably try the Eggplant and Century Egg and the Pig Ear and Tofu dishes to start. Have fun!

Enjoyed the post =) The Fried Pork Fat & tofu/ear thing both look good! It's nice to see SD getting some more regional Chinese places.


I do wish we'd get even more diverse Derek - we need some good Jiangsu/Zhejiang(Shanghainese)/Yunnan, etc.

Derek R

Amen to that (and I think SD could/would support those types of places too).


Here's hoping we get some of that soon Derek!
