Foodzings went in search of “fancy schmancy Chinese food” at Bryn Mawr’s Yangming. What did they find? Well, some pretty alright food for starters:
I met my friend L for lunch last week. A good mid point between our respective workplaces was Bryn Mawr. We picked Yangming. L used to live behind there a few years ago, but she hadn’t ever gone there! It’s a fancy schmancy place. Cloth napkins. Real silverware. They don’t give you chopsticks unless you ask. They even have a fancy (possibly genuine) statue in their foyer. Wow, food and an art/history lesson. What more can you ask for? […]I got the orange beef and L got general tso’s chicken. I only took pictures of my beef because the two dishes looked exactly the same. It would have been impossible to tell them apart visually. The beef was just fine. Nothing spectacular, but good. It wasn’t tons of batter, which I like. There were actual big piece of meat in there. They bring out some sort of fried rice, but it’s not really fried rice. In reality, it’s pretty plain. They don’t ask you what kind of rice you want. I wish they had, I would have just had plain steamed white rice.
