One dish at Grace Garden

Dennis S Jan 30, 2014 10:20 AM

I'm going away for a month flying out of BWI. I have some fave dishes at GG, but wondering if there's any votes for specifics. This will be on either Friday or Saturday, mid-day either way. TIA.

    Lunch is the best time to be at GG. If I had to stick with one dish, it would be the basil chicken. I'd still have to add an order of yang chow fried rice w/Chinese sausage. Eat the rest on the plane.

      Why's lunch best?

        Because you can walk right in and be seated. The weekday lunch crowd is light, in my experience.

      Taiwanese fish.

          No. 'Malaysian stir-fry' with squid and pork.

            Over priced and grossly over rated fish paste. I prefer making the noodles using shrimp paste. Put into plastic bag, cut off corner and squeeze into chicken broth. So easy and good.

              Fish noodles at Grace Garden are a great dish, but maybe not to everyone's taste....

                Good, certainly not "great". It's a bit of a novelty (gimmick) to some diners. Agree with you on the Taiwan fish. Also very good sichuan fish.

                I agree. It was fine but not remarkable.

                Li does a nice job with beef tendons and tripe done sichuan style.

                Indeed, the Sichuan triple treasures, more commonly known as fuqi fei pian, are qualitatively better than any other version I've had. If you like the dish, it isn't to everyone's taste, this is the best you'll get.
