Pettie (sic) Soo Chow in Cliffside Park - authentic Chinese

marachino | Aug 5, 200603:45 AM     36

I often visit my (Chinese-born) dad in Bergen County on the week-ends and, due to the dearth of authentic Chinese restaurants in the area, find it a challenge to eat out at places other than Chinese buffets. Until tonight, that is. We went to a place called Pettie Soo Chow (I believe the intented name was "Petite Soo Chow", as that is what the restaurant's Chinese name conveys) which my dad learned about recently from a friend of his. Soup dumplings (xiao long bao), sizzling salmon, clay-pot fish head, and double-cooked pork were all excellent, served in generous portions and well-spiced in the Zhejiang/Sichuan style...easily the kind of stuff that would warrant a trip to Chinatown or Flushing. Service was also cordial and attentive. I understand that on week-ends, they do Northern-style Chinese breakfast (steamed buns, shaobing, soy-milk, fried crullers, etc.)...Dad and I will be visiting again soon!
