I apologize in advance for those who are not big on Chinese food, as we (well, mainly I) will be driving you a bit nuts this week.
Last summer, we took a trip back up to North Jersey to visit good friends and to enjoy some Chinese fare at a wonderful little place in Cedar Grove called Chengdu 1. I had read some really good things about the place from Jason Perlow’s Off The Broiler blog, so I was looking forward to this excursion. We had lived up in the area (Little Falls) some years back, and we’re pretty sure this restaurant wasn’t around back then.
The following are pics of the items we had that lovely afternoon and early evening. Some of you might want to get a cup to catch some drool…
Well, we will be heading back for more on the 27th, and am very much looking forward to the return trip.
Now I mentioned in the previous post that there is a sister Chengdu 1 located in Glassboro. At some point, we will have to make a trip there to see if the chef at that location comes close to matching the level of quality that exists at the Cedar Grove location. If so, the discussion of what is the best Chinese restaurant in South Jersey would pretty much be over. And if anyone wants to join us in finding out, let us know.
