Lin Garden: What's good there?

I'm a fan of well made hot & sour soup so it's made my must-try list. What else do they have up their sleeve?

And while we're at it, how's ABC Euro Deli?

    1. My standard order there was chili chicken and house shrimp. It's hit-or-miss cheap Hakka - keep your expectations in check - I do really like those shrimp, but have had better chili chicken elsewhere.

      ABC Euro Deli is a nice little spot for your eastern European goodies - breads, deli meats, pickles, etc. The ladies behind the deli counter are authentically gruff. They also have some nice prepared soups and things in the fridge case, if you want to pick up a quick lunch/dinner.

      1. For me their chili chicken and kan shue (sp?) green beans definitely are a must have

        1. A guilty pleasure for sure.

          My favs:

          Crispy beef
          "special" chicken (best dish in the house IMO)
          Chicken pakura (sp?)
          salt and pepper shrimp
          Green beans (not sure what they're called)

          Former co-workers and I used to go once a week and order these 5 exact dishes. It's highly addictive, and I'd hate to see the sodium content in some of those dishes - but delicious never the less.

              I've only been there for lunch during the week...

                  You're welcome. Let me know what you think after you go - make note of what you ordered!

          1. My faves are the crispy beef gam-bien, kan-shue green beans. The chicken pakoras used to be good but the last time I had them they were not cooked through and lacked the flavour they used to have. I also like the manchurian fried rice. Agreed that the chili chicken is not as good as other places, last time I had it it was full of gristle.
