Henan food, with some Sichuan touches, might this be the best Peter Chang restaurant ever? So far I’ve tried only about ten of the dishes. I recommend the fried chicken with red peppers, dried fried cauliflower, tofu with bean sprouts small dish, and the beef jerky with cilantro. I’m not saying those are the best, simply the best I’ve had so far, and at some point I may do a longer review. But those four dishes, taken alone, are right now the best meal in this whole area, at any price. Go!
