China Garden Restaurant

While the lunch menu is fairly mundane, Americanized Chinese-ish food, the dinner menu here features more traditional fare, including both Mandarin-style and Cantonese-style food, plus dishes typical of other provinces. Examples of some of the more oddly-named dinner entrees: Shrimp Bird's Nest, Slippery Chicken, Peanut with Chicken Ding, and one dish called "Happy Family." Before you laugh, though, you should know that China Garden is considered one of the most authentic Chinese restaurants in Houston.
