Peaceful on West 4th

February 24, 2015

#D5 Peaceful Beef Rolls: Five-spiced beef rolled in a crispy green onion flat-bread & sweet hoisin sauce - 2+

J's comment > very well done; I'm usually not a fan of the beef roll as there's usually way too much flat-bread to beef, but this was very well portioned, excellent ratio of beef, flatbread and sauce; flatbread was crisp yet slightly chewy; beef was tender and not dry

#L2 Xing-Jiang Cumin Lamb: Spring lamb dry stir-fried with green peppers, crushed cumin & chilli flakes - 2

J's comment > not bad; very tender and flavorful lamb, not too gamey; sadly served at room temp (though it took quite a while for this dish to arrive so what gives?)

#N14 Dan-Dan hand cut noodles: Spicy, tangy peanut sauce, minced pork & spinach - 2

J's comment > flavor OK, not spicy at all actually; noodles a touch on the al dente side; as I always complain w dan-dan noodles, this dish needs more meat as well

#D1 Xiao-Long Bao Steamed Buns, filled w minced pork, ginger and a savoury a sauce - 2

J's comment > passable; wrapper thick; jus present, but not much; pork OK but had a slight hint of gaminess

#SP12 General Tzao's Chicken: Crispy chicken in a tangy & spicy sauce - 2

J's comment > too much batter to actual chicken, and the chicken present was dry
