King's Village - Tianjin Cuisine

jonathan sibley | Oct 4, 2000 05:54 PM

The past 2 weekends, I've gone to King's Village restaurant, just beside Captain Fresh Asian supermarket in Watchung, NJ (rte 22 West).

It is supposedly one of the only Tianjin restaurants in the NY metro area, and they are very nice. There is a special dim sum menu that lists a number of interesting noodle dishes, as well as things like scallion pancakes or chive pancakes. They have some tasty roasted meats, as well as some interesting soups. Apparently, almost everyone has a special soft tofu soup, which was quite tasty.

It's a cuisine I'm not very familiar with, but I gather that Tianjin is near Shandong in China. The dishes I've had haven't been as exciting to me as some really good Sichuan dishes, but they have been quite good, for what they are (and, it's a totally different cuisine, I realize). I don't want to oversell the restaurant, and suggest that everyone should hop in their car and drive 50 miles to get there, but it is tasty, and there are a number of dishes one doesn't see elsewhere.

One more thing. The restaurant is extremely reasonable. Four of us had lunch for about $20 one day.
