#FoodFriday: Clifton’s Chef Yang 46

#FoodFriday: Clifton’s Chef Yang 46

 

This week #HipNJ got the opportunity to visit Chef Yang 46 in Clifton and try some authentic gourmet Chinese cuisine. 

Upon entry, the atmosphere of the restaurant is spacious yet organized. The walls and floor contrast from white to black, as do the table covers and chair. Flavorful lights line the ceilings and bright pink plants populate the perimeter. Various decorations populate the walls keeping in theme with the very modern feeling of the black on white. Aside from the main dining room, there is an intimate bar with a television and enough seating for a small party. There is also a smaller dining hall with extra seating located near the bar. 

Breaded peanuts coated in spices

 

We sat down to go over the menu, and found ourselves scanning a flavorful and extensive selection. There was everything from seafood to meat dishes to New Style Sichuan Dishes. To begin, we were served breaded peanuts coated in szechuan spice. The szechuan spice had a mouth watering effect and left a cool, refreshing aftertaste. In addition, we tried the classic crispy noodles with duck sauce and mustard sauce. We ordered two hurricanes, which were well mixed and presented in hour glass cups.

Before our main courses, we tried the 4-piece Crispy Chicken Wings as an appetizer. The wings were full and coated with a moderate amount of spiciness, which was a perfect amount. For the main courses we ordered General Tso’s Chicken with Pork Fried Rice and Sweet & Sour Chicken. The General Tso’s was ordered with extra spice, which gave it a thunderous kick and added an extra layer to a well known dish. The rice was filling and mixed well with the chicken. The Sweet & Sour Chicken was beautifully presented and was blended with the flavors of peppers and onions.

For dessert, we were treated to a Tartufo-type treat and coconut flavored ice cream. The tartufo had a chocolate shell, with both chocolate and vanilla ice cream on the inside and a hint of cherry. The coconut flavored ice cream was so good that we couldn’t stop ourselves from finishing both scoops in no time, and it topped off our meal on a sweet note.
