朱記

1 Jun

Went to 朱記 for lunch yesterday. 朱記 (Zhu Ji) is a semi-famous place for its meat pies. Meat pies, Sweetney Todd? Alright, not that kind of meat pies, let’s just move on.

Their meat pies(beef) are not too big, about the size of a coaster (random item, I know).Once you bite into the crispy skin, lots and lots of juice come out, wasn’t too shabby, I must say.

Golden, chewy yet thin skin was probably my favorite part of the dish

My sister also got 小米粥 (xiao mi zhou). It’s like a good Southern grit, but Chinese. It’s made with millets, small-seedd grain that’s been used in Chinese cuisine since the beginning of time. Yes, the beginning of time.

add some sugar for a little more taste. Really health stuff here.

We also got 刀削麵 (dao xiao mian), knife shredded noodles. It means that the chef shreds the noodle dough with a knife so the noodles are thicker and chewier. It’s one of my favorite noodles. Great texture. Their noodles were pretty good, it wasn’t too heavy with a great hint of sesame oil. Veggies were sweet and fresh. Probably my favorite dish here.

Potstickers! Gotta love them. However, theirs were just mediocre. Skin has a good texture, but the pork filling inside were okay.

Lastly, we also got steamed dumplings with veggies fillings. This one was just okay too. It lacked flavor in my opinion.

So overall, how did i feel about this place? It was alright, I’d probably give it a solid B. I think their price would be a little more justifiable if their items are made more delicately.
