Authentic Chinese food and fresh sushi creations highlight the menu at BonHouse, an Asian fusion eatery with an eclectic menu. Inside the casual dining room—accented by Chinese lanterns, red-trimmed walls, and a tank of exotic fish—patrons can satisfy appetites with classic dishes such as kung pao chicken and moo shu pork, as well as more adventurous offerings such as hot-pot spicy frog legs and Hunan-style lamb. Sushi chefs are also onsite to create specialty rolls and sashimi.
The tantalizing smells of chicken simmering in a savory sauce or buttery lobster hit the nose before guests can fully discern where the aromas originate. They might be coming from a plate of chicken slathered with black-bean or garlic sauce or lobster buried in lo mein or fried rice. These are just some of the dishes New China Restaurant’s chefs whip up alongside classic favorites such as general tso’s chicken and mongolian beef, as well as shrimp prepared eight different ways.
Wok Chinese Seafood Restaurant fills its vast menu with an atlas of eats, drawing inspiration from China’s Hunan and Szechuan provinces as well as the capital city of Beijing. The kitchen prepares traditional favorites, whipping together hot and spicy shrimp and steamed sea bass in a scallion-ginger sauce alongside beef with broccoli and chicken lo mein. The menu also includes house specialties such as the Dragon and Phoenix, whose chicken breasts, lobster meat, and snow peas are not formally recognized by zoologists as either dragon or phoenix. Red lanterns hang above the dining room, where a mural of a woman flying through swirling clouds is complemented by the whimsy of each table’s pink-cloth napkins.
