PHO Ginseng

pho huntersville, nc  What can be better than a good Vietnamese soup in the middle of a cold? Trust me it’s heaven. At least, the pho soups from Pho Ginseng in Huntersville, NC are. The herbal soups have the base made with ginseng that has not only the best flavor I have ever eaten but it has health benefits also. interior PHO ginseng Huntersville, NC

Pho is a beef bone broth that takes 10 hours of slow cooking process. The broth is made by simmering 20 pounds of beef bones, 10 pounds of flank steak, pear and white onion and herbs like cinnamon, black pepper, ginseng, black cardamom, ginger, coriander and others.01

The advantage of the cooking process is that the slow cooking will break down the bones and the connective tissues of the meat that leaves behind the collagen which are the most important cells to bones and the brain.

The restaurant has excellent reviews on every review site I have looked and now I know why.

 

We love this place!  Just recently discovered it, but I can see coming here on a weekly basis!
The number 37 is my favorite (the small is quite large) and I also get the spring rolls)
The staff is also very friendly and will give recommendations if you ask.
Everything is very authentic made in house, even their dumplings that always seem frozen and flash fried in other restaurants taste freshly made.
If you’re in the area and looking for a place to eat, it’s a must, you won’t be disappointed!

This place is awesome!! It’s been very hard for me to find pho this good!! And they give you so many options!
The service was friendly! I ordered the summer roll as an app and they were delicious!
chicken PHOI had the chicken pho and asked them to add extra veggies to it. It came out the just was I had ordered it!! The flavors were exactly as pho should be! The fresh basil that comes with the soup surprised me. It was absolutely beautiful!
Overall, I will be coming back here.

Was never a big fan of Vietnamese food and quite frankly didn’t know what to eat whilst looking at the menu, there was only one server working during the dinner shift yet he was attentive and recommended me the #24.

#24 A interesting noodle salad dish with grilled pork on in it. It was a very fresh and interesting dish, tho the server coached me on what sauces to put in it. Without a doubt I will be returning to try the other items on the menu in the near future!

I live in Huntersville and was very excited to see this place open. I have eaten here 8 times and the food (especially the vermicelli #24 ) is consistently delicious.  They opened about a month ago and they have fixed the service problems that they had in the first few days. Great place to eat Vietnamese. I am happy to be on their list of regulars!

Hunan Chinese Restaurant

 

Louisiana has no shortage of good restaurants to choose from. One of the best Chinese restaurants in the area is Hunan Chinese Restaurant. The restaurant received many awards over the years like overall excellence in the Top 100 Chinese restaurants in US in 2008. As proof of all the rewards they have received, the walls of the restaurant are decorated with them. From city papers, magazines to pictures of the owner Jeffrey Cheng with celebrities and politicians that dined in his restaurant.hunan chinese restaurant baton rouge

Hunan Chinese restaurant opened his doors in 1979 but moved to his present location in 1989. By that time Hunan Restaurant has already built itself a reputation of the first choice when it comes to Chinese restaurants.Hunan restaurant inside

This place is almost always packed with families enjoying a tasty buffet after Sunday church or just having a nice dinner.

The menu offered is filled with a lot of richly seasoned spicy food for all the spicy food lovers. The price is right. Not cheap for the quality and freshness of the food you receive but not expensive either.

Most of the reviews this restaurant has are positive. Of course you will find some negative ones too about the waitress that didn’t refilled the drinks or the one that forgot to bring out the fortune cookies but this can happen to any restaurant.

I have enjoyed my dining experience here so I highly recommend this place.

Nice little buffet for Sunday afternoon. Two visits now and have been pleased both visits.

Price is right. Food is fresh and of good quality overall, nice variety of dishes and really cool Chinatown type atmosphere.

$9.95 plus drink, Community Iced Tea. Soft serve ice cream and Chinese doughnuts for dessert.cream chese donuth

No sushi on this one, strictly Chinses style Asian. They do have a sushi bar and hibachi place on site too but separate from Hunan.

Will be back and also want to try the Hibachi.

I really hate when people say I’ve had Chinese in such and such large diverse city and…  Well, I’ve had Chinese food in Los Angeles, New York, Chicago, Miami, Atlanta, Marseilles France, and Munich Germany and I came here last night for dinner and was pleasantly surprised.

Parking is an issue here so be mindful that there is a rear entrance to the restaurant from the parking in the rear of the building.  The service was brisk and pleasant and the décor was…interesting (they’ve gone all out with the pictures of semi-known people that come into the restaurant).

I ordered the hot and sour soup, chicken wing appetizer, and hot and sour pork. Hot and sour soup The soup was some of the most delicious that I’ve ever had and it was served with fresh, crisp wontons.  The chicken wings were delicious!  Fresh, hot and seasoned with a nice brine before hand.  The hot and sour pork was a delicious fried pork with a delicious sauce!

This is the best Chinese restaurant that I’ve been to in Baton Rouge since moving here in April and I will make sure to keep Hunan Chinese restaurant in regular rotation.

I have lived in Baton Rouge for almost 12 years now, and I’ve always heard of Hunan. My friends used to work their while attending college. So when my father mentioned he wanted to go there for dinner, I was ready to give it a try.

It is a known establishment on Sherewood Forest next to popular pub, The Londoner. The parking in front is usually full, but there are additional parking in the back. The interior is a bit out dated, but gives you that same feeling of Chinese restaurants you see in films during the 70s-80s. Yes, the kind where Jackie Chan can be seen filming in. Oh, but wait! I didn’t pay particular attention, but over 40+ pics of famous people that have stopped by…can be seen lining the walls. I’m sure Jackie Chan is on there somewhere. Lol

Bo Bo platterWe started our dinner with an order of Bo Bo platter; a mix of their top appetizers surrounding a nice little fire pit to “BBQ” your food. I love interactive food! We also order their pork and eggplants, spicy Hunan shrimp and scallop, combination lo mein and an extra order of shrimp toast. The eggplant is a dish I like to order that Chinese restaurants because Asian eggplants are much more firm than typical eggplants, so the dish wasn’t soggy. My dad’s favorite was definitely the shrimp toast. Since my dad was a chef/owner of a Chinese restaurant for over 20 years, he appreciate that the shrimp toast wasn’t standard commercial frozen order, but home made!

Overall, the food was good but not spectacular. The flavors were traditional Hunan-Schezuan Chinese cooking. So why the 3 stars? Management and service was horrible. We walked in to the restaurant, to one of the server arguing with the manager. We stood there for a little before they acknowledged us. We stood there even a bit longer while they BOTH debated who should bring us to the table. The second issue: our server. He was new…like 3 days new. He could not give us any general recommendations and barely knew the menu. He also confirmed that he has never actually dined there before getting hired. Hunan is connected to Ginza sushi, and offers their customer the choice to order from Japanese and/or Chinese no matter which side they are eating at. I asked for the sushi menu…which was finally brought to me well after all the food was brought out. So, no sushi for me. :(  We had to ask for utensils AND plates.

Chou’s Kitchen

chou's kitchenChou’s Kitchen is specialized in unique Chinese cuisine, Dongbei cuisine to be exact, specific to northeastern China.
The restaurant is a humble eatery in a Chandler strip Mall, but the food served here is not that humble, in contrary. It is colorful and filled with distinctive flavours
The main diet here is a starch-heavy one. Dough is a part of almost every dish here. There is more focus on the dough then the rice because of the long winters in the region this cuisine comes from.dough based cuisine
Did you know that the temperature of the water can influence the dought’s suitability for certain types of dishes?
The hot water makes the dough flatter, and stronger, so it’s used when making stuffed dumplings. The cold water makes the dough rise more and it’s used in preparing meat pies
A big hit at Chou’s Kitchen is the so called “cold noodles”. They are served with cilantro, scallions, cucumber, peanuts and chilli pasta and trust me it’s not a humble dish at all!
When you visit Chou’s Kitchen you will have a real mandarin experience as the majority of the restaurants customers are mandarin speaking families. From babies to seniors you can find all age groups here, all excited to try a new dish
It is a wallet friendly place, which makes this culinary experience an affordable one. The food is homemade, simple and tastes like you would get it from China.

 

“My parents are regulars here. The restaurant has a family owned feel. The decor is simple, nothing special per se. The waitress is super friendly and welcoming, she actually remembers my family and enjoys chatting with us.
Their service is quick and efficient, food is pretty authentic.
Beef patties chives pattiesI wasn’t too impressed with the beef patties/pies (not sure what it’s called in English lol) 牛肉馅饼 because it was kind of sour, which is strange to me. The chives pattie was on point though (韭菜合子) !!!

dumpling soup Loved the soup dumplings too, better than most places I’ve been too. The jalapeño potatoes were yummy, the eggplant was average (kind of oily). I also loved the lamb skewers, they were perfectly seasoned and tender! Overall a great experience and such a relief that Arizona has legit Chinese food :)”

Huamei Y

Chou’s kitchen is a nice little Chinese restaurant that specializes in food from the Dong bei or north eastern part of China. The foods are generally things like dumplings, the beef/pork pie, spicy lamb skewers, green onion pancakes, sour cabbage soup and many other foods that are similar to the items listed above.

Must orders: lamb skewers and either the beef or pork pie
Highly recommended: green onion pancakes, pan fried chive dumpling, dumplings/pot stickers, Xiao long bao, sour cabbage soupSpicy Water boiled fish chou's kitchen

Most of my recommendations are appetizer sized so order one or order a few! The meat pies come in 3’s”

YEEEEEEESSSSS. Finally, some awesome soup dumplings in Phoenix!!! Not some chewy-skinned dried up semblance of one, which I have found at other Chinese restaurants.

The moment we sat down, we ordered some xiaolongbao while we perused the menu. Our main goal was to eat soup dumplings, so we just ordered a beef/vegetable noodle entree as a complementary dish. The noodles were fine, nothing special.

dumplings Chou s KitchenAs we awaited our first order of xiaolongbao, we enjoyed watching one of the ladies hand make the dumplings at the counter. It only increased our anticipation. When the dumplings finally came out with vinegar + ginger, I was so happy! You can be certain no other place I tried in Phoenix automatically brought this sauce out–I  would have to ask for vinegar separately!

They tasted great. Is it the best xiaolongbao I’ve ever had? No, but they were damn good regardless and certainly the best I’ve had in Phoenix. The broth in the dumpling was very savory, the skin wasn’t too thick or dry and the filling was delicious.

Their entrees are reasonably priced too. We’ll be back :) Thank you Chou’s Kitchen!

China Magic Noodle House

Did you know that there are over 40.000 Chinese restaurants in the U.S? Trust me it’s not easy to pick one to review.

My first pick will be a Chinese restaurant located in Chandler, Arizona, hidden in one of the shopping centers. It’s a clean and pleasant place. The walls are decorated with pictures of the foods from the menu.

China magic noodle restaurant

What so great about China Magic Noodle House? Let me tell you they make hand pulled noodles.

The biggest attraction is the big window to the kitchen from where you can see the chef create five different types of hand pulled noodles: thin, thick, wide, shaved and vegetable. The variety of preparation style: pan-fried, braised, in soups or chilled make’s you eat  something different every time you visit the restaurant. And the best thing is the chef makes them especially for you, for every individual order. Every time a new order comes in he grabs a piece of dough and starts working it into a thick loop, stretching and spinning it for the final result, your special order of noodles.

Another interesting thing in China Magic Noodle House’s menu is the spicy marinated pig ear wich is sliced so thin, almost translucent and it’s crunches when you chew it. Also, you have to try the Thin Sliced Spicy Pig Ears.pan fried dumplings filled with ginger- flecked pork and served with soy dip, crispy egg rolls, lamb noodle soups or the fried noodles. They are delicious.

As my favorite thing to eat at a Chinese restaurant is soup ( you can’t compare the oriental soup with anything in this world….or maybe just with Hungarian soups) I couldn’t skip the diversity of soups that China Magic Noodle has on his menu. They have eight types of steaming hot soups, filled with vegetables and a meat of your choice, topped with cilantro.

You can have a tasty lunch or dinner at China Magic Noodle House and not spend a fortune. All their food on the menu are under $10 and let me assure you the portions are a pretty good size too. How cool is that?

These guys must be doing an awesome job as they have excellent reviews all over the internet:
