Shin Shin Restaurant Review

: It is not only the gentle price structure that brings people to Julia and Ming-Li Hsu's comfortable restaurant, but also the friendly staff and varied menu. Szechuan and Peking fare, beginning with pan-fried dumplings, onion pancakes, and hot and sour cabbage, is consistently good, as are main dishes like Szechuan noodle soup, deep-fried pork ribs with spicy salt and tea-smoked duck. One of the best dishes is a stew-like soup filled with noodles and beef brisket in a spicy, chili-flecked broth. While the setting is very modest, the welcoming attitude and reliable food are more than enough to overcome it.
