You don't have to look far into the menu at Thumbs Up Chinese Restaurant to notice their authenticity. Each menu item is first written in Chinese symbols, with the English description and the level of spiciness following. Once your eyes make their way to the description, some of the ingredients may prove unique or untried, such as the edible tree fungus salad. Chefs cook up these unique dishes alongside classics such as Kung Pao chicken and fried buns topped with sweet cream. A true Chinese experience requires trying the Chongqing hot pot, in which staff serve Chinese food staples around a steaming pot in which guests cook cuts of meat and steam vegetables or wrinkled shirts. The restaurant's desserts take both unique and well-known forms, such as sweet sticky beads soup or scoops of ice cream.
