THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED S Y Chinese Restaurant Restaurant Review

: S Y stands for Shenyang, the former Manchu capital in northeastern China. The local cuisine uses a lot of lamb and Napa cabbage. You can see that in Pickled Sour Napa with Lamb. The pickled Napa resembles sauerkraut, and gives the dishes a rustic feel. In northern China, a variety of breads replaces rice in the average diet. Try the Pao Cake, which is a sticky cake made from millet flour. The salt pancake, which is a cross between a pita and a matzoh, is a good bread to scoop up stir-fries and sauces with.
