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 spirit that envelops the place. The Szechuan and Peking fare, beginning with pan-fried dumplings, string buns and hot and sour cabbage salad and continuing through such main courses as moo shu shrimp, deep-fried pork ribs with spicy salt and tea-smoked duck, is consistently good. Julia runs the front of the house and knows most of her customers by name---as well as their food preferences---after just a few visits. While the setting is very modest, the welcoming attitude and reliable food are more than enough to overcome it. One of the best dishes: a stew-like soup filled with noodles and beef brisket in a spicy, chili-flecked broth.
