Pyng Ho Restaurant Restaurant Review

: Chef and manager Steve Jou guides one of the city's oldest Chinese restaurants. He promotes Pyng Ho in a variety of ways, including offering a chef’s table by special reservation. Black lacquer and faux gold define the décor in a way that is at once gimmicky yet comforting and familiar. The menu presents mostly standard fare, but always with a twist. Jou even incorporates gator tail --- as close as he can get, he says, to south China's crocodile tail --- into dishes, and applies the General Tsao treatment to rock shrimp. We recommend the duck, pork and chicken selections, as well as the vegetable moo shu, which comprises a pile of stir-fried vegetables and four pancakes. Eggplant and garlic string beans are additional vegetable offerings, and all of them with rice would make a meal. Occasional specials include Kobe-style steak and other surprises. Dessert gets short shrift, and the wine list, while lengthier than in most Chinese restaurants, is unexciting.
