Trying to find a good Americanized Chinese Place

OK, I adnmit it. My taste buds were shot of in private school. Too much mystery meat. \

My first Chinese food find was the Snow Pea in Lakewood. Now that I've moved North I am looking for a good Americanized Chinese place in Coppell, Carrollton, or Lewisville.

Thanks, Well Fed

  1. My favorite American Chinese place is Lover's Eggroll. I believe there are locations in Lewisville and Irving.

      second annkor26's motion , since Lover's Eggroll has tasty food .

    2. Pan Acean in Coppell isn't bad for Americanized Chinese food.

      1. Wow, the most Americanized Chinese food that I know of , that also has the plus of being in a lovely setting, with great drinks to boot, is PF Changs, and you will find it not far from Carrollton, off the Dallas North Tollway at Frankford....You will like it, as most do..

        1. Empress of China is pretty good, I've only been to the one in Valley Ranch, but I believe there are a few others around as well

            I second Empress of China-I was at the Valley Ranch location for lunch yesterday-such good food. Try the Orange Chicken, General Tso's Chicken, Kung Pao, and Garlic Chicken-they have great, affordable lunch specials.

              I had a very memorable experience at Empress of China that caused me to call the health department ... just sayin'.

            2. I live in Flower Mound which isn't far from you. At the intersection of FM 407 and Morriss Road (technically I think this is the starting point of Highland Village) there is a Cafe 407 behind the Wendy's and Empress of China behind Burger King. Both are excellent. For dining in i'd choose Empress of China, it's very snazzy inside. Cafe 407 is our favorite for takeout. Our favorite dishes from each:

              Cafe 407 - sesame chicken, mongolian beef, cashew chicken
              Empress of China - sauteed fish with black bean sauce, sesame chicken, pecan chicken, mongolian beef

              I have recently been converted to 1st Chinese BBQ in Carrollton though, it can be a little intimidating because it's so authenticly chinese and have such a massive menu, but I can recommend the Young Chow Fried Rice, Beef Flat Noodle, BBQ Pork and Wonton Soup.
