Jane G. v. Han Dynasty report.

shoeman | Apr 25, 2013 07:44 AM

I'm a huge HD fan. My family and I eat there weekly. Sundays Laban review prompted us to check out Jane G.

For comparison sake we ordered mostly what we order at HD.

Spicy Cucumber - Jane G was much spicier and less oily. Both great. Tied.

Wonton in Chili Oil - JG adds a bit of hoisin sauce which gives a sweet background to the heat. The wonton were wonderful. Excellent - Advantage JG.

Dry Pot Chicken - JG uses dark meat dusted in a light coating and flashed fried. Much more complex than the more generic white meat HD uses. They use more veg. including bok choy. Big advantage JG.

Double Cooked Fish - Very similar. JG also seemed less oily. Very Good slight advantage JG.

Chicken Lo Mein - For my son. JG makes their own noodles which are broader than the typical Lo Mein noodle. Great texture. Less greasy. Easier to eat for a child learning to use chopsticks. Definite ad. JG

Singapore Noodles - This was a Laban recommendation not served at HD. Very Good but nothing special. Happy with the choice but I would not get it again.

Overall Jane G is the new Sichuan king. Much nicer inside than any HD location. Good spot for a more upscale experience. Despite what I've read on this board the prices are very similar if not exactly the same as HD. I met Jane G. She seem anxious to get the place rolling. I will now be supporting her now.
