I recently helped my mother host her quarterly dinner and card game. We took the easy way out and had it catered by Chino Chinatown and Chef Uno. First things first, if you haven’t dined at Chino’s you need to. Right away. It is the whole package: fantastic food, inviting atmosphere and exceptional service. Okay, back to the dinner.
We have eaten our way through the entire menu at Chino’s, so narrowing down the dinner choices was not easy. Here is the line up:
Chicken Lollipops – crispy with a sweet glaze
Crab and Lobster Rangoons – a new twist with a veggie wonton wrap filled with decadent crab and lobster
Pork Dumplings – fresh and wonderful
Chicken Drunken Noodles – rice noodles, chicken and veggies in a wonderful sauce with a sprinkle of candied peanuts for crunch
Shaken Beef Noodles – quality tenderloin seared with veggies served over garlic butter noodles
Pina Colada Upside Down Cake – moist cake drizzled with a salted rum caramel sauce and topped with berries and brittle
Chef Uno herself delivered the food! She helped us unpack and instructed us on how to assemble the food. The meal was fantastic…as always. Our hats off to Chef Uno.
