Mak Chin's

1511 Shepherd Dr

I'm always suspicious of Chinese restaurants in non-Asian communities. Too often, the result is a trite regurgitation of every other Chinese restaurant. Mak Chin is different. This hip joint has a Tuesday busy lounge in the back serving up drinks, televisions and comfort. In front, the restaurant thankfully keeps the menu simple and the modern Asian look the same.

We had the off-the-menu fish lightly battered, fried, and drowned in a spicy and sweet sauce. The fish tasted tender and the sauce well balanced. We also tried the Schezuan Shrimp. It wasn't anywhere near as interesting.

If you live in the neighborhood, give it a tray. It might be a good alternative to Pei Wei.
