Yen Ching Restaurant Review

: While Chinese food is not hard to come by in most cities --- Boise being no different in this regard --- locally owned Yen Ching rises above the norm. Red walls and dark wood provide traditional Asian appeal, but the lack of gloss coupled with straight lines takes a diner from Mao to Wow. On the menu side, orange-flavored Mandarin chicken or twice-pulled pork won’t disappoint; these dishes are by no means original in name, but here their distinct flavor, robust with ginger and garlic, five-spice and secret spice, create a tantalizing balance between interesting and familiar. Add a plate of dry-cooked string beans tossed with ground pork and you’ll hope your fortune cookie says, “Business travel will bring you back soon.”
