Eating: Z & Y Restaurant
Our Sunday go-to is always Chinese food. Meandering through the streets of Chinatown you could end up answer, but if you end up at Z & Y you know you did it right. The decor feels like a quintessential Chinese restaurant, but has a little bit of class that makes it comfortingly cozy. It’s not a 4 star restaurant, but it’s not that no frills, “orders up!” chaos that you might see in some other fast paced joints.
The menu has every item you would want and then a few special house items. Bonus: there are TONS of pictures to get your food porn on and help you choose your items. The wonton dumplings in spicy sauce with chopped peanuts was a new taste for us (though left a layer of spice literally across the entire inside of our mouths — strange). Egg flower soup, delicious. Pork fried rice, nothing impressive, but still necessary. Mongolian beef, ye please. And their scallion pancakes are crisped, yet not oily — flaky on the outside and doughy on the inside.
All in all, a good spot for some Chinese food that doesn’t overdo it and leaves you feeling full and satisfied.
