This is one of my favorite Chinese restaurants in Amsterdam. Located on the Linnaeusstraat in Amsterdam.
Since 2003 we’ve been visiting this restaurant as it was in my vicinity and near Perry’s house too. Service is very friendly, food is great, and we love the personal touch. As we had various city trips this year, we dediced to go easy on eating out, and I guess this is the second time this year that we’re having dinner here.
Anyway, staff was kind of worried as we haven’t been around much lately. And the owner was very pleased to see that we were in. She actually told us that they had been wondering what had happened.
In the same time, we are still very pleased to see that this restaurant is still in business. The owner did say that they had been affected by the crisis, and that the restaurant was not as busy as it used to be. On the other hand, their take-out counter is doing well.
So, if you’re in the East part of Amsterdam, and you have no clue where to go for good food and great service:

(They offer delivery service too)
A quick Fat Tire/Chicago story: On Day 5, the Stevenses and their friend Erin and I all went to lunch at some noisy Irish restaurant near the Anthropologie store in the Near North/Gold Coast area. Skiv, Ang, and Erin all ordered Fat Tires with their lunches. The waiter brought out a 22 oz. bomber for each of them, which brought laughter since everyone was expecting the typical 12 oz. bottle. As the only teetotaler in the posse, I avoided the $9.50 charge for each bottle that we discovered later on the bill.
Skiv had a swig left in his glass when we got up to leave, and I ribbed him that he was leaving at least 3 and a half bucks worth of beer behind.
