Michelin rated Lan Sheng opens in Wallington
What a great surprise to find an authentic Szechuan place in the Polish town of Wallington.
Menu is vast and intimidating but the waiters make great recs.
209 Paterson Ave.
Here's what I ordered:
-Mini crabmeat soup buns: Good flavor. Since they are mini there is less soup inside.
-Braised beef filets with napa cabbage: The sauce filled with roasted chili is so addicting. Spoon it over your hot white rice and enjoy.
-Gui Zhou chicken was good. Reminded me of the Chili Chicken dish at Penang but on the sweeter side.
-Lan Sheng Grilled Fish was fried not grilled leaving it very crispy. Its topped with scallions, cilantro, potatoes, black mushrooms and lots of cumin.
-Sauteed snow pea shoots were perfectly cooked leaving a good crunch. This was much appreciated to mellow out all the bold and spicy flavors.
-Chongqing sweet potato puffy was offered to us on the house by the owner after we declined dessert since we definitely over ordered for 4. Thank God she did because I loved it!
Hoping to be more adventurous on my second go. The restaurant was dead empty when I was there so hopefully they can get a crowd going to stay in business.
Thanks for posting...I may even give their Dim Sum a try, although that's really more Cantonese style
this is fantastic news. we are huge fans of Chengdu 23 in Wayne, and this place would shave a few minutes off our trip when jonesing for some authentic Szechuan. Hopefully it compares favorably. cant wait to give it a shot.
