If you follow me on social media, you know last night my husband and I decided on takeout from one of our favorite places to end our date night. We didn’t want to cook and we wanted to be home and in front of the television to watch POWER! That meant we needed a quick takeout option.
We’ve never actually eaten inside of this place, but we always order and pick up. It’s most certainly one of my favorite Chinese restaurants. It’s also an immigrant owned business with an incredibly friendly family. The service is always impeccable and it makes me feel really good to constantly support them.
Through my work, I know how hard it is for immigrants to start and grow businesses. I also love how hard they work and how they come together as a family to accomplish the goal of being successful business owners. This place has been around for over 20 years, and is handed down from generation to generation.
This place has never let me down. Everything I’ve tried is great, and the portions are huge! It’s also very reasonable. If ever you’re having a dinner party, and you just don’t feel like cooking or hiring a chef, this is a great option. You can order maybe 3 or 4 main dishes some friend rice, throw it on your serving platters and wahlaaaaa.. dinner is made!
Our favorites, pictured above are the Vegetarian Eggrolls, Szechuan Broccoli and Vegetables (no mushrooms) and a large order of Spicy Shrimp Fried Rice. I also have to let you know that they are so generous with shrimp. Usually I complain when places give you like four pieces in a meal, I have never had that issue here, it’s always a great amount!
We spent a totally of $21 on this meal and it last for two days. I’ll be honest, I totally hate leftovers, and very rarely if ever eat them. Lately, because we were wasting so much food, my husband started reheating the Chinese in a skillet with a little butter and it’s totally amazing! Seriously… no more money down the drain when we don’t eat all this food. This evening we had a lot left over because Bryce only eats the broccoli and rice and Bryon and I only had one plate. Usually when all the kids are home this is enough for everyone.
If you’re ever in the Cedar/Warrensville area and have a taste for Chinese, I suggest you try China Gate. Unless it’s just you and one other person, I wouldn’t say it’s the best place to sit down and eat. There’s little privacy for conversations, and not much room, especially if they are busy and people are sitting down and waiting on pick up orders. It’s the perfect, I don’t want to cook but my family needs to eat option.
