A recent lunch adventure took us to Mr. Chen’s Chinese Restaurant, in the old Chuck-E-Cheese building on I-55. While the absence of skee-ball is a definite negative, everything else was great. I went out on a limb and ordered the only dish with TWO hot peppers next to it on the menu, “Chen’s Crizy Chicken.”
The green peppers are jalapeños, with seeds. The red ones are Chinese insanity peppers. Verdict: Delicious, with a side of sweating. The crizy chicken was certainly not “Thai hot,” probably because the waitress informed me that she warned the kitchen that I was American. I didn’t have the heart to tell her I was Canadian.
We also had dumplings, of which not even a picture remains.
