It's been about a year and a half since my last visit to China Village so I was looking forward to seeing how they are doing these days. Even with the loss of their highly acclaimed chef things are still humming along.
The restaurant was pretty full with a diverse crowd all enjoying their meals. We started with the West Style Spicy Fish Fillet Soup - the one with the zillion chilli peppers. It was as good as I remember: lots of large chunks of velvety fish, bean thread noodles and a rich stock. A large soup toureen with enough to serve 6-8. Also revisited the Hot and Spicy Pork Shoulder and found it more interesting than before. The braising sauce was more savory (and spicier) while still being expertly cooked. It still comes with a a nice portion of bok choy around the rim and the portion is very generous. We enjoyed some pea shoots with garlic also.
Service was very good and friendly. The manager came over and checked on us a couple of times. A pleasant evening all in all.
