Mulan--first time but super delicious!!!

Went to Mulan by Kendall Square in Cambridge tonight, grabbed 4 other people from school and had a super meal.

Thanks to all the dish recs on Chowhound, we knew exactly what to order:

--Salty Crispy Chicken (loved tasty but not too much breading and it wasnt super dry like some can be)

--Beef with Leek in Pancakes (i know this came highly recommend but maybe cos I ate mine near the end when I was about to explode...and also cos I dont LOVE leeks but I figured the other people would and they did love this dish...I found it to be too much of a mouthful of leeks LOL)

--Winter Melon Soup with Seafood (this was great cos it was very soothing/cleansing, light yet still flavorful, but the BF didn't love the seafood, said the clams made it taste too fishy/seafoody haha)

--Salt Pepper Pork Chop (how can you go wrong with this, it was fatty and juicy and seasoned well--YUMMM)

--Braised Pork Shin with veggies (this was so delicious and fatty, another super winner)

--Bean Curd with dry bean sauce (actually cant recall having this ever before--does anyone know if this is very Taiwanese of a dish??? but it was actually sweet, a nice surprise and the BF loved this too!)

--Chinese Squash (this was okayy...may do a bok choy or pea pod stems next time...i found it a bit too soggy?)

--House Special Fish (basically the fish fillets with hot chilli pepper sauce that they have in a lot of szechuan restaurants, but flavorful and yummy...couldn't tell what kind of fish it was but someone said catfish or tilapia which is usually what chinese places use cos its cheaper i think =X)

--Pork with Cabbage dumplings (would have been happier if they were fried but steamed is okay, just nothing to write home about---i think the ones from the chinese restaurant in Belmont (not Shangri-La) are much better, but then again that place is more out of the way and we've only found the dumplings to like there =X)

Overall a very very yummy meal!! :)
