Just a quick post about lunch at JTYH a few weeks ago. The BF got the mao er duo (cat ear noodle) vegetarian style. Our dining companion got a dao xiao preserved vegetables and pork soup. I got the lamb noodle soup and some pan-fried dumplings.
Everything was good as always. I just wish the vegetables in the vegetarian noodles were more exciting. The dumplings were really good with a thick, chewy, rustic skin. It’s one of the best things to order at JTYH.
I think our consensus the other day (out of a dozen) is the dumplings have great wrapper, but totally mundane stuffing. The knife shaved stir fry lamb noodles are quite fantastic, and I prefer them to the cat ears. Of course, last time around, the wok fired kidney and fried chitlin’ were still tops so… hopefully you’ll get to sample that shortly.
