Thanks for turning me on to secret menus

Mugs | Dec 8, 2003 07:12 PM

Chinese food in this part of Will County is plain and predictable. Numerous posts extolling the secret menus at Chinatown restaurants caused me to ask our server at China House in Crest Hill if the restaurant serves any dishes not on the menu. "Salt and pepper shrimp," she replied. Hey, I've read plenty about that on this board! First time I've ever had the dish, and I liked it, though given the overall quality of this joint's fare I doubt if its salt and pepper shrimp holds a candle to the best Chicago versions. But I got beyond the printed menu--and would not have known to even ask if not for you 'hounds. Thanks.
