Since Mei Long closed last summer I've been looking for a restaurant to fill the void for when we get that Chinese food craving... There are a couple of places we like OK but we haven't been anywhere that's really knocked our socks off. Our favorite so far is Su Hong in Menlo Park (we like the Pinenut Chicken in Garlic Sauce), but it's not nearly as good as Mei Long was and it's a bit too far for us to drive to for a casual after-work dinner. Hangen on Castro street and Chef Chu in Los Altos are also on the good-but-not-great list. The last place we tried was Cafe Yulong (on Dana near Castro), which we didn't like very much.
Does anyone have any recommendations? I'm not looking for a particularly authentic Chinese dining experience, in fact I like my Chinese food somewhat americanized (not in terms of the flavors or spices or greasiness, but more in terms of serving chicken dishes that have white meat off the bone etc). Any suggestions for places to try (and dishes to try) would be much appreciated.
