Tang Bistro

Tang Bistro’s been on my radar ever since it first opened. A lot of Northern Chinese spots seem to have opened up recently (South Silk Road, Blossom Northern China Cuisine and Chinese Crepe). TB specializes in Xi’an cuisine.

We came on a Tuesday evening and the place was half full. The inside is quite spacious and even has a patio facing out onto 109 Street (after all, it housed Urban Diner).

Menu is beautifully done and more upscale than your normal Northern Chinese spot.

Menu (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16 and 17) and drinks (1, 2 and 3).

Liang-pi (cold noodles) ($7.50)
DSC02031Crap, I didn’t realize that you had the option of getting this non-spicy, mild, medium or intense! Would love to see how “intense” it really gets.

The cold noodles had a chewy, slippery bite. Comes with the usual bean sprouts, julienned cucumbers and spongy gluten. Good but I prefer Noodle Feast’s version.

Cucumber salad with garlic sauce ($6.50)
DSC02026The cucumbers had a satisfyingly crunchy bite. The vinegar/garlic sauce was bright and refreshing. Would get this again.

Spicy pig ears ($9.50)
DSC02027The spicy pig ears had a tasty chili oil sauce. Great texturally but the portion was pretty small for the price. CC thought it came in a “ear shaped” bowl.

Scramble egg & tomato ($10.50) with hand pulled noodles ($2.00)
DSC02028The hand pulled noodles had a great chewy toothsome bite to them. The scrambled egg & tomato worked really with the noodles. The combo felt like you were eating Italian with an Asian spin to it. The egg reminded me of eating some sort of delicious cheese. I know that sounds weird but it was good.

The dishes are a bit on the oily side of things but everything was solid. Will be back to try more dishes.
