The go-to spot for Taiwanese food, Mei Shung offers basil chicken, oyster pancakes, and other traditional dishes.
Possibly the best Chinese in Chicago – If this isn't the best Chinese I've had in Chicago, it's easily the best I've had in a while. I ordered the hot and sour soup and the orange chicken and both were excellent. The hot and sour soup was very flavorful and the orange chicken was rich and crisp with just the right amount of spice. The presentation was beautiful, complete with a flower carved out of a vegetable. Based on reviews here, I expected parking to be a problem but I went on a Friday night and found plenty of street parking just South of the restaurant on Broadway. I was seated immediately and the service was similarly fast. I think the price put things just past inexpensive but it wasn't too expensive and the quality made it worth it.
Our Favorite Chinese – Excellent, fresh food, every time. In more than 5 years of regular visits, deliveries and take out, we have yet to be disappointed. Appetizers are terrific and the main dishes with shrimp have always been especially fresh. If you don't try this place at least once, you are missing out. Prices good too. Chocolate fortune cookies!
the best I have found in Chicago. – This is the best Chinese Resturant I have found in Chicago. The Taiwanese dishes are excellent and everything was very paletable and just right- not too salty or sweet. The restaurant is clean and enjoyable to go to. I try to go there at least once a week sometimes more. Try their Hot and Sour Soup
first, then you will know the difference. I also like their Green Onion Cake, Awesome A++.
