Northeastern Chinese Cuisine at Tang Street Introduces a Whole New World
Published: July 3, 2013
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.”
