Chang-an brings delicious high end Chinese food to SGV
Had an epic meal at Chang’an! Thanks so much to Gogobot for making it all possible
The owners are super passionate about their restaurant vision and frustrated by more mainstream Chinese restaurants in the United States which are specifically catered to the American tastebuds and not at all authentic. Chang’an wants to show American eaters that authentic Chinese food is just as delicious as dishes like General Tso’s Chicken.
My favorite dish hands down was the fried soft tofu. It was fried with a seasoning similar to the popular Chinese salt and pepper shrimp dish, but I’ve never seen this seasoning used on soft tofu specifically. The delicate tofu was creamy and hot inside and burst in my mouth. So yummy!
Chang’an also excelled at skewers, they prepared the traditional lamb skewers and various cuts of meat perfectly. We also had an amazing pork belly dish, melt in your mouth and with a beautiful presentation, placed elegantly on top of fresh bok choy. Highlights of the meal also included the fried chicken and eggplant dishes. Can’t wait to go back!!
