Hearty Shenyang Dinner
It's chilly up there in Shenyang, so it's only natural that the cuisine should feel heavy. Our meal for three featured chicken, lamb and pork.
Cold Noodles ($7.50)
The custom-made noodles in this salty and sour soup are accompanied by kimchee, braised egg, and slices of meat, then topped with a splattering of sesame and cilantro. It's served in an icy-cold broth.
Freshly pressed noodles ($7.50)
The management imported Chinese machinery make these noodles.
'Dog' meat ($7.98)
Not actually dog! This is a cold shredded pork dish (traditionally pig heart) marinated with vinegar, salt, ginger, cilantro, carrots, and sesame seeds.
Cumin chicken bone ($7.98)
A customer favorite, this spice-packed chicken has bones everywhere, but it's perfect food to pair with a pint of beer.
Dry Tofu With Meat and Hot Pepper ($7.98)
Thin tofu skin "noodles" accompanied by bell peppers and sliced pork. Slightly on the spicy side.
Lamb Skewers ($.99 each)
The skewer options at Shen Yang (like most Northern Chinese places) are vast, including beef, tendon, gizzard, shrimp, fish, squid, chicken heart, and lamb kidney.
Garlic Black Fungus ($5.98)
A vinegary wood ear appetizer topped with cilantro and shredded carrots. There's quite a bit of chili in here, so be sure to have water (or beer) close at hand.
