During my tour of New York City with Pichet Ong, we had dinner at China Cafe with some friends. China Cafe is a very small establishment, so reservations are appreciated with their 2013 Michelin Star. Some people waited quite a while, but we called ahead and booked a party of four.
Here's some of the dishes we tried, minus the scallion pancake (B4). It
was really soft in texture and incredibly flaky. It was delicious!
We started with dumplings (B11). These were very delicious, just like
This was the crispy tea smoked duck (C8). I wasn't in love with it
though it was tasty.
Now this dish is my absolute favorite of the evening. Pan fried lamb
with scallion (C19) served with rice is amazing. Absolutely amazing.
It was so good that it made all the other dishes seem just okay. The sweet
scallions covered with meaty drippings is amazing. The lamb was also
perfectly cook, tender and sweet. I could probably eat that entire plate
There you have it: B4 and C19 at
China Cafe. Get
them both and thank me later.
