Tasting Menu Aug 30, 2016
My daughter (a UVM student) has been wanting to try this wonderful place for ages. We had dinner here tonight. It was outstanding!
We had the chef's tasting menu. It was a good deal at $38.00 per person.
We started with a light salad (refreshing), a coconut soup with tofu and chili oil (addicting), crisp eggplant slices (very good), mushroom dumplings and a spicy pork dumpling (excellent), dry sautéed string beans (outstanding), a pork dish (yum), a chicken dish (was too spicy for us so we had it wrapped or the teen boy at home), a beef dish with mushroom and bok choy (terrific) and was hands down the table's favorite - and we are all carnivores mock chicken in general tso sauce (INSANELY GOOD). They made magic with seitan! This dish could turn me into a vegetarian!
Dessert was a small piece of chocolate cheesecake with big fat fresh blueberries. Not too sweet.
I can now see why my daughter was so excited to dine here! Do not miss this place!

Luxury, Family Style Chinese Food Jun 12, 2008
What a great place to eat.
This is one of our favorite restaurants in the area. The menu is a bit more costly than we typically spend (usually $30-40/pp with tax and tip) and VERY expensive compared to our typical $4.95 lunch at the Chinese restaurant. However, for a group meal, this Chinese food can't be beat! It's great for a work group, a family of adults, or groups of friends to come together to share a tasty Chinese meal family-style.
Best advice is to go with a group that has similar tastes. If somebody orders seafood (while others only eat beef or chicken) or another person is vegetarian (while others prefer meat) it can be an awkward experience. Food is served AS IT IS PREPARED. So when you're sharing it's no problem because you eat whatever comes as it arrives. But if everyone was planning to order an individual meal it would make for an awkward experience.
Tables are kind of close together. It's a "close knit" dining experience. There's lots of artifacts about which are fun to look at if you're at all interested in Asian culture as we are.
Best bet for parking is a place in the mall garage. Downtown Burlington is great for people-watching and has lots of fun cafes to go out afterward for drinks and dessert to extend your experience. If you're willing to splurge on Chinese with a group of friends, stop in to Single Pebble for a great meal!
