Yen Ching in Bayview Village was the Chinese restaurant I grew up with, now that it is closed, I am hoping to find some other places to get my favourite dish - Yu Xiang Pork..
At Yen Ching it had tiny slivers of tender pork, not quite ground pork, but not slices or chunks. There were slivers of water chestnuts and lots of garlic and spicy brown sauce that made it perfect on a bowl of steamed rice. I can't remember if it has wood ear in it or not.
I will also miss the Mu Shu Pork, the Crispy Shrimp (tiny battered shrimp in a sweet and spicy garlic red sauce), the Crispy Beef (tender beef battered and coated in a spicy dark brown sauce) and the Szechuan Meat Sauce Noodles (thick noodles in shredded beef and carrot in a spicy hot sauce), but I think these were all dishes Yen Ching created?
Even though I live downtown, I am more than willing to travel to Richmond Hill or Markham, because I know that currently, that is where most of the best and busiest Chinese restaurants in the GTA are...
Can any of the Chinese Food experts on this board help me with some suggestions?
