I just returned from Ping's in Elmhurst and I encourage everyone to sample the Chinese New Year special menu. There are items for the very adventurous(loofa, anyone?) but you'll find more accessible treats. Chinese pea shoots with three mushrooms tasted vibrantly green and the sizzling ribs (actually, pork ribs roasted with whole onions, shallots, ginger and Chinese sausage) were remarkably rich and complex.
My only regret is not to have assembled a greater crowd in order to taste more dishes. Go! Don't miss it.
