FeldmanFest at China Village (Albany, CA)

Melanie Wong | Sep 5, 2004 12:18 AM

Friday night, Dave Feldman accompanied the Gang of 34 for a Sichuan banquet at China Village in Albany. The goal of the local chowhounds was to demonstrate that our own favorite eatery could hold its own and indeed beat out Manhattan's Grand Sichuan. According to Dave, China Village hit the target and more.

The menu, as revised and in the order of service, is listed below. The salon is open - please discuss among yourselves.

Six cold appetizers of the chef's choice plus special condiments shown in the picture below, from front to back - duck, jellyfish, cucumber in spicy garlic sauce, celtuce stems with red oil, light shadow beef, and pressed tofu with roasted peanuts, plus a centerpiece of rolled chicken, celery, fat choy, and bean curd.
