New York Chinese Restaurant
East Coast expatriates looking for “authentic” Chinese food – that is, not necessarily authentic to China, but to the restaurants in the New York area – can find all of their old favorites at this aptly named outpost in Henderson.
You want Crab Rangoon? They’re on it. Chop Suey? They’ve got it, called New York Chow Mein and served with pork, chicken, beef, shrimp or just vegetables. Moo Goo Gai Pan, Kung Pao Chicken, General Tso’s Chicken, Mongolian Beef, pepper steak, cashew shrimp; you name it, it’s on this menu. There are even those family dinners in which you pick from column A or column B, depending on your choice.
But along with the three sweet-and-sour options, three varieties of moo shu, four egg foo youngs and six kinds of fried rice are some specialties that NY Chinese calls it own. Those include lemon chicken, bacon-wrapped butterflied shrimp, salt-and-pepper shrimp, Seafood Delight with shrimp, scallops, crabmeat, squid and mixed vegetables, and the Happy Family, which combines beef, crabmeat, shrimp, chicken, roast pork and scallops with vegetables.
