369 Promotion in the Pacific Rin Shopping Center
369 next door to A&J are running a promotion. If you spend ten dollars on a meal you get a two dollars coupon for later use. You can up to 5 coupons at a time. The one I have expires September 15, 2003.
This restaurant serves Shanghai style food.
We had for lunch
Red Braised Beef Stew with Tendon over thin noodles. A&J is better, but that may I get the thick noodles there. Also this was milder and less spicy, a plus for some and minus for others.
The Drunken Chicken, again milder with a less wine taste. But you get a full hindquarter.
Little Dragon Buns, we got I think 8 or 10. Freshly cooked, but the meat was more red (maybe beef or some spices) and did not taste like pork to me. But otherwise was very good.
The best dish served, a fried Beef Pie. Perfectly done with the beef steaming inside and outer crust fried but not oily.
The whole meal cost $20.00 including tip and tax.
Nest time I will use the two dollars coupon.
I also go to 369 branch in Milpitas quite often. Mostly for the yang chow fried rice which I think is one of the best tasting chinese fried rice. Big shrimps, lots of eggs and tasty rice. I noticed some decline in quality and also smaller portion on my last meal. Maybe a different chef. That would be a shame if it continues. Many of our family members love this fried rice.
I'm the one who suggested the fried rice. I believe they offer this at all the branches of 369. I went to the branches in San Jose and Fremont and both offer the fried rice. Remember to order the YANG CHOW fried rice and NOT the other kinds. The branch in Fremont seems to decline in quality somewhat. I noticed smaller portions and fewer shrimps. It's still quite good. Also, see link below for the details and their menu.
Try the other branches (i.e. San Jose branch or others) - and give them a call to make sure the restaurant and the dish is still there since it's been a while since I visitted that branch.
I also enjoyed their snow fish.

I thought that I want to give a bit of warning that almost all their dishes are a bit on the oily side as is most chinese places anyways. But if you don't care then go ahead and enjoy yourself. I protect my Yang Chow fried rice fiercely from my ravaging wife even though she has her own noodle dish. he-he-he
Of course, we must remember to share !
Hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
