The hospitable Chef Kong adds joy to lunch and dinner hours with lengthy menus of authentic Chinese delicacies. Afternoon diners can bisect the day with a plate of accessorized shredded pork or gently singe taste buds with a fiery octet of chicken dumplings in hot sauce. Savory meats and seafoods star in dinner dishes, including spicy, sizzling brisket in hot szechuan sauce and chinese zucchini with crabmeat sauce. Meat-averse eaters can sink bicuspids into veggie-laden dishes, such as Little Szechuan's popular stir-fried string beans or deep-fried tofu with sizzling mixed vegetables.
Little Szechuan invites escapist eating with classic Chinese décor and framed artworks that hide secret portals to North Dakota. Diners trade bites and clash chopsticks over last bites amid plush booths and warm red tones, and a nearby wall brims with cards and birth announcements from Chef Kong's loyal customers.
Pizza Patron has a wide selection of menu items such as Specialty pizzas that take on Spanish names, including La Mexicana, packed with chorizo, ground beef, bell peppers, and jalapeños, and the Spinach Clásico, which gets layered with alfredo sauce, baby spinach, and cheese. Crispy pies pair with sauce-drenched wings and churros for dessert.
Himalayas Indian Restaurant showcases the rich, diverse flavors of regional Indian cooking. Roasted meats, simmered vegetables, and fragrant curries all benefit from the wealth of spices and herbs found throughout South Asia. The chefs begin every day by grinding and preparing fresh spices for their dishes, lending vibrant flavors to the menu that Zagat scored as "very good to excellent."
Herbs and Spices on the Menu
The eclectic character of the Indian subcontinent comes out in more than just the menu's herbs and spices. In the dining room, meals unfurl to a soundtrack of Indian flutes and drums; in the kitchen, the chefs embrace traditional cooking techniques by roasting everything from skewered meats to breads inside their charcoal-fired, clay tandoor oven. Even the recipes have deep ties to Indian tradition, having been passed down through generations of Indian families.
