This chain location continues his recipes and sauces using the traditional Asian food adapted to the American palate by reducing the oils and adding wine, vinegar and soy sauce. Popular entrees include Orange Peel Chicken, Mongolian Beef, Lemon Chicken and Beef and Broccoli. Catering and fundraising options are available at this location. Orders can be placed online via their website and picked up on your way home.
