Yen Jing Restaurant Review

: Husband-and-wife Shu-Chih and Hsiu Hsia established Yen Jing in 1991. The couple is of Chinese ancestry but lived in Korea, so the Chinese food has Korean stylings. Some Americanization of the menu is also evident, such as in the sweet-and-sour items. Upon being seated, good homemade kimchi and a dish of pickled cabbage arrive at the table to keep you happy until dinner. Fish selections range from the familiar to little known, and a wide variety of seafood is available, too, including sea cucumber. Steamed dumplings are a highlight, and noodles are all homemade. Among the meat dishes we recommend the spicy beef with pickled mustard greens, or, to dine lightly and on a meager budget, choose the San Shan Seafood Noodle, presented mounded in a heaping bowl with bits of seafood and a flavorful broth. Dessert is the wedge of fresh orange presented with the bill. Liquor is limited to Chinese and Korean favorites.
