One dish at Grace Garden

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.

  1. 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.

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

      1. Sichuan stir-fried pork belly?

          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.
