Northeastern Chinese Cuisine at Tang Street Introduces a Whole New World

Tang Street’s steamed pork buns are just one of the Dongbei delicacies you never knew you needed.


Some things at Tang Street do get lost in translation. The online menu differs from the one you will be presented (make sure you get the one-page insert with the more esoteric stuff); some dishes appear in more than one location with differing descriptions. Depending on which server you get, things may not get any more clear — which is what may have happened with an order of pork “slab” that turned out to be twice-fried, but with belly and bell peppers… Good, but not remarkable. Never mind. Pay heed instead to the wisdom of my fortune cookie: “Most spend lives reading the menu instead of enjoying the banquet.”
