Why go? Chiang’s Gourmet is an unlikely place to find good Chinese food, hidden in a corner just off the freeway, miles north of Chinatown, in a rootbeer-keg shaped building that was once home to an A&W. Nonetheless, people have found it, as it’s usually packed with groups of UW students, big Chinese families, and couples sharing plates of the famous house-made noodles.
What to order? For authenticity, and deliciousness-seeking omnivores (there is a vegetarian menu), “the “Chinese menu” is the way to go for dinner.We recommend the Home Made Pan Fried Noodle Shanghai Style, Green Onion Pan Cake, Steamed Dumpling, Braised Pork with Preserved Vegetable and Five Star Spicy Hot Chicken. Our favorite though is their weekend, made-to-order Taiwanese dim sum, brunch menu. Try the Baked Cake Wrapped with Sour Vegetable and Ground Pork, Chinese doughnut, Home Made Noodles, Ground Pork, and Diced Dry Bean Curd with Bean Paste Sauce, Steamed Wonton with Hot Spicy Sauce and Sweet Rice Round Dumpling Wrapped with Fritter of Twisted Dough, Dried Shredded Meat, and Seaweed.
Pipsqueak tip The little ones will enjoy all the classic favorites like moo shu pork, beef and broccoli, fried rice and homemade noodles. The food is delicious yet the service is fast, informal – perfect for weeknight meals.
