Chinese/English menu at Lily's House, Lafayette

anli | Mar 25, 200608:23 PM    

Stopped in last night for a late bite. They are open til 10 on weekends. The Cantonese waitress is conditioned to bring me the Chinese menu now. The good news is that they translated it into English, so ask for the Chinese menu next time. We had the Shanghai yellow fish chowder (my husband loves it), the tofu with 3 types of shrimp, the Mongolian beef and the salt & pepper scallops, which were a special that night. The scallops were too heavily battered and a bit greasy. This is the second time we've tried a fried dish there, it's not his forte. The beef was flavorful & spicy, and the tofu was soft cubed, with dried shrimp, baby and medium sized shrimps, very Hangchou style. The chowder was a little on the fishy side, but not off putting, especially if you added some white pepper to spice it up. All in all, still quite good. They do a brisk take out business on rainy days.
