Chen's Gourmet Restaurant Review

: Who says good things can’t come in small packages? Against all odds, this eatery that is basically a take-out can compete against the big boys. We are addicted to the fiery Szechuan beef and shredded pork with string beans. Expand your horizons with the Peking duck, orange tofu, and the General Tso's chicken. To appeal to a larger audience, Chen's offers a full line of vegetarian goodies, including a veggie General Tso's chicken. Hungry? The drill is to order out and run home to feast. Chen's also offers a catering service, ideal for locals too busy to drop by or whip up a few Chinese dishes at home.
