Charlie Chiang's Shirlington - a Website & a Prediction

wayne keyser | Jan 20, 2008 08:00 AM

Charlie Chiang's Shirlington branch is still renovating, but they mailed a flier saying that their new menu was available for takeout and delivery now.

It referred to a website just for this location:

Looking at the menu, however, it's "old wine in a new bottle" - not one whit different from the usual generic Chinese-American menu, add a dollar or two for the better decor. I tried, but I lose hope when I see little heart symbols by the "heart-healthy" dishes, and others that "may be steamed and seved with sauce on the side". Yuppie stuff.

You won't find an actual Asian eating within fifty yards of the place.
