“Chef Wang Chinese Restaurant” now open with 165-dish menu

The massive 165-dish menu features an extensive list of regional dishes.

Chef Wang Chinese Restaurant quietly opened its doors at 356 E. Grant Rd.

We haven’t dined in yet, but we hopped in to grab a copy of the menu and share the details with you.

The massive 165-dish menu features an extensive list of regional dishes from areas such as Sichuan, Dongbei, and Xinjiang. Sichuan cuisine is famous for its fiery numbing cuisine. The northeastern region Dongbei is known for its pickled cabbage akin to sauerkraut (think China Pasta House). The northwestern region Xinjiang is famous for its flatbreads and use of lamb and cumin.

Out of 165 dishes, ten are labeled as Popular Dishes in America. These include dishes such as Orange Chicken and Mongolian Beef. You should be adventurous and try out the rest of the menu.

Extra-Adventurous Menu Highlights

  • Three Pepper with Pork Kidney Slices ($12.98)
  • Grilled Duck Head Pot ($12.98) – duck head, fresh vegetables stir-fried with chili peppers; served in a metal pot
