Auntie Guan’s Kitchen

Always on the lookout for good Chinese food, I stumbled upon Auntie Guan’s Kitchen a few weeks ago while we were looking on seamless for a restaurant to order from for dinner. We decided to eat somewhere else, but I ended up going to Auntie Guan’s a few days later (in early December) to have a quick dinner on my own. There isn’t too much seating in the restaurant and it’s definitely more for take out, but since it was just me, I sat with another couple eating dinner.

I ordered two things – the beef noodle soup:

Wildair, extra virgin, hanging up menus

And the pan fried dumplings:

The pan fried dumplings had a really good filling – a good combination of pork and vegetables. I also really liked the beef noodle soup (although the broth was very salty, the noodles were cooked very well and the beef tasted almost as good as my mom’s).

Since I enjoyed the food at Auntie Guan’s, we decided to order takeout from the restaurant a few days later. We ordered some sesame chicken, the pan fried dumplings, and some scallion pancake with beef. The takeout was not as good as dining in (and the sesame chicken was actually sweet and sour chicken, not sesame). The scallion pancakes added a lot of sugar to the sauce that the beef was paired with and we had to eat leftovers from our fridge because we ended up throwing out the sesame chicken.

I saw a lot of items that looked good when I went to the restaurant so I think I’ll try going in again instead of ordering from seamless in the future.
