Yangtze Restaurant

Katie and I took our friend out to Yangtze last week. I feel like our experience must have been different from everyone else’s. I seem to remember only hearing good things about this place. In fact, Citysearch visitors seem to sing its praises. Life long patrons of this restaurant would probably mob us if they had the chance.

Well Katie and I will stick to our guns. $30 is too much for a few appetizers which can be found anywhere, and two luke-warm dishes, one of which was “a plate of luke warm chicken fat.” I paid $12 for chicken fat? Give me a break. Knowing my track record, I’m going to cause quite a riot in the comments section.

To ward off the proprietor of this restaurant commenting, no… not once did anybody ask us how our food was, and if they did, I think I’d let go of my Minnesota-niceness and say they could do better… much better. I’m glad I made the restaurant review site… that was the only saving grace I felt is that I could share this tale of abominating food with the intar-web.

    I went there for lunch about a month ago. Frankly, my expectations for any chinese food joint are pretty low. So it met those expectations. I’ve been there before for dim sum, but it’s my only dim sum experience so far, so I can’t really compare on that aspect. I wouldn’t go out of my way to get there, though.

    This was especially bad, like even for standard chinese food….

    I’m sure it was a fluke and that they are just mediocre yet over priced most of the time.

    Did you like the DIm sum? I’m not a dim sum person, but we dim sum with a bunch of friends at Mandarin Kitchen in Bloomington.

    It was okay, as I recall. I mean, this was probably four or five years ago and I haven’t done it again since.
