I ended up here because 'Happy Together' restaurant was closed for the holidays. The restaurant was very clean (possibly newly renovated?), with an open kitchen. The friendly service only added to the deliciousness of the meal.
Savoury Pork Claypot : Meatballs sitting on top of of cabbage, translucent yam noodles, with hunks of shitake, ginger, and earthy tiger lilly buds. The meatballs were perfectly fatty and loaded with a rich flavor.
Mandarin Garlic Tripe: the tripe and sweet red and green peppers matched well, but it was the cloves of garlic that were cooked long enough to have the texture of potatoes yet the subtlest of taste the made the dish truly outstanding.
Xi'an White Lamb Stew: the server warned me that the lamb flavor was intense, and it was - but it was followed by the mellowing taste of cilantro, cabbage, sweet onions, and lightly starchy pieces of noodle. A stew with so many layers of true flavor.
The food tastes and appears as if it is prepared by a brigade that understands not only how to manipulate flavor but present it in an aesthetically pleasing way.The dishes have a homemade feel to them but also an incredible level of depth. I will be back!
