« Chili/Chowder Cookoff | Main | Waffle Toast! »


Thank you for the photo essay! I've been wanting to go since the buzz got out on the Ann Arbor Food list, but haven't made it over there yet. I'll definitely try some of the dishes you recommended!

What a wonderful post. I haven't been to Chia Shiang in quite some time and I'm delighted to be reminded of it. We stuck mostly to the front of the menu, so I will definitely go to the back next time. Does this also mean they have dim sum on Sunday mornings?

This is just what I needed- a key to some of the dishes worth trying there! I've only had half a dozen so far, and choices have been a bit limited by the more... prosaic tastes of some of my fellow diners. "But I always order fried rice!" ;-)

Jen: they have dim sum, but it's not exactly what you expect. The Shanghai dim sum menu features dishes that are, for the most part, larger. So you'll be ordering fewer items than you would at a Hong Kong style dim sum restaurant. For the homemade dumplings, you do need to get there before noon. They make a limited quantity, and when they sell out that's it for the day.

You know that I live nearby, right? Give me a holla next time you go!! I love that place!

you are book marked ....thanks for this....

Thanks for the recommendation. We live right up the street, but during one of the ownership/chef changes, the food hit rock bottom and we haven't been back for many years.

You're right about the large number of chinese nationals dining there. We ordered one of our old favorites, Gung Bao Soybean Skin Rolls and shopped off the other patrons plates for the other one. Two tables were eating what looked like cucumbers and edamame in a white ginger sauce.

The soybean skin roll dish was better than the original owners did it. Lots of wok-flavor and intense layers.

The mystery dish was also very good. After being schooled on the name twice by the owner, I was not able to grok it. It looked like a tubular melon and had a very mild flavor. If anyone knows this disk and can provide an english translation that would be great.

Looks like they're back with a vengeance.

oh... the dim sum looks sooo good!! we usually go to great lakes for dim sum but we will definitely need to try this one.

The Fresh Garlic Stir-Fried String Beans we had there were really good as well.


Oooo, I used to live up the road from Chia Shiang and would get their Kung-pao chicken all the time. Tastiest Chinese Food Ever. Then, as ponky said, management changed and the food started to be less and less awesome so I quit going. It's nice to hear that they are up to their old standards again; I'll have to give it another try. Thanks!

Hi there -- do you know the Chinese name for the boiled fish in Sichuan sauce dish? I very much want to try this or make it myself.

Also, I have the Dunlop book, but couldn't find this recipe. Can you tell me which specific recipes I should be looking at? Thanks!


Look up the Fish with Chiles and Sichuan Pepper (la zi yu) in Land of Plenty, p 278. Also, check out Fish Braised in Chili Bean Sauce (p 259), and Fish Braised with Bean Curd in Spicy Sauce (p 269).

What's this "Ann Arbor food mailing list" you're talking about?

Nice to see you today btw.

It's [email protected]. You probably know the drill for joining a Yahoo group, so I won't give the instructions.

We ate at Chia Shiang tonight and loved the String Beans with Garlic and the General Tso Chicken but didn't really like the Crispy Salted Duck--had very little flavor. The portions were huge and we took a lot home and we were about the only non-Chinese there.
Thanks for the recommendation.

This is the second time I've come back to this page to remember the name of beef with chili peppers and peanuts so I could order it for carry out. The dish is sublime, but the name is so pedestrian I forget it very quickly.

If you like lamb at all, consider ordering the Xinjiang-Style Lamb with Cumin. We just got that this weekend (sadly didn't have the camera, can you believe it?) and it was awesome. Thin dry-fried slices. Actually probably better to eat in than take out.

Do not get their "soup" dumplings. I went today and they tasted horrible. Nothing like the real thing.

Laurie: not sure what the story is there. We've had them a number of times over the past year and a half and they've been good.

Maybe an off day?

I had the boiled fish in the chili broth and it was really tasty, but super salty (esp the fish itself)..it is supposed to be this salty?
thanks for the awesome pics!

Danielle: no, it isn't. We just had it Thursday night and it wasn't excessively salty, so it sounds like they blew it that time.

Thanks for your quick response. Will try it out again.

Одолела думма о черных дырах. Почему они не увеличиваются бесконечно, затягивая в себя все вокруг? Из-за чего наша галактика до сих пор не оказалась вся засосана в черную дыру, а вращается вокруг нее? существует ли какой либо лимит массы, при достижении которого, черная дыра прекращает поглощать предметы вокруг себя?

Одна голова - отлично, а много - лучше. Поделитесь мыслями, как зафиксировать ноутбук на стене?
Идея: Есть туалет, есть дверь, необходимо notebook закрепить на стене.
Я пока ничего не удосужился придумать помимо того, что приклеить крышку ноута. Однако это варварство.
Прибить ноутбук гвоздями не пойдет.

Son of five years old. Read but do not want to know how just fine. Children's magazines can only read with my mother , or rather listening to what he read.
I think about what is necessary to get colorful lad magazines .
But all the small stuff I do not want to purchase . Advise what is best.
