Red Lotus - Chapel Hill, NC - LOVE

Barbara | Oct 27, 200908:53 AM     20

I never hear very much about this place and I'm kind of surprised, because I think it's the best Chinese on this side of the Triangle (only bested by Super Wok and I don't feel like driving there all the time).

Anything else I should try there?

I usually order from their Shanghai Menu - my staple is the shredded beef with chili sauce. Also love the cold sesame noodles and the szechuan potato noodles. I find their American menu to be a cut above the other local places as well. Their beef with chili pepper is delicious but a bit too hot even for me, and I really love hot/spicy food. I'd order it again though and double the rice :-P

(edited to add that I don't work there...I just read a thread of mediocre reviews - I agree with the Chowhounders, do try to stick to the Shanghai menu, or the specials board. I too found the Dan Dan Noodles to be abhorrent).
