Apple Green Bistro -- Sichuan / Northeastern Chinese (Cupertino)

hyperbowler | Jul 23, 201508:34 AM    

Cupertino Village's newest addition, Apple Green Bistro, serves and eclectic mix of Chinese dishes and sushi. I was told that the chef is originally from near Shenyang (in Northeast China aka Dongbei) and has worked at Sichuan and Cantonese restaurants throughout the Bay Area.

The northeastern dishes have their own section of the menu, the tail of which are Chinese-American dishes. There aren't that many. The hostess recommended the cumin lamb and the braised eggplant with pork. The family dinner menus include what I believe to be a cold dark sauce, rather than mustard sauce, dish made with mung bean "pulled skin" la pi noodle (see similar dish at http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/9813... and http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/9826... ) . I wonder what the Korea spicy fish is like?

They keep models of each of their cold dishes at the front of the restaurant. I didn't capture it in the attached picture, but they had a sushi roll there too.

Can someone comment on their porridge menu, which I've attached as a photo? I don't recall seeing some of these on local menus before, but it's not something I would seek out so maybe it's more common than I know of. Some of the grains include Northeastern staple millet, mung beans which are listed as green beans, black rice, rice, corn, and Chinese yam and goji berries.

I tried the oat mung (green) bean lily flower porridge. The puffed out oats had a nice bite, and looked like barley.
