DanielK Posted December 7, 2007 Share Posted December 7, 2007 A small group went to try out Jackey's Cafe in Chinatown today, hearing that they had some authentic Cantonese items on the menu. After a bit of negotiation to hand back the menu that had the Americanized combination plates, we got the proper menu. Lots of interesting things on the menu, which we barely made a dent in. Five of us had: Shrimp Dumpling Soup Sauteed Snow Pea Leaves w/Garlic Pan Fried Dried Pork and Chinese Sausage Fried Calamari w/Chili Sauce Steamed Clams in Spicy Broth I thought everything was good, though nothing stood out as particularly outstanding. The Pork dish was the unanimous favorite of the group. Service was very good - water glasses and tea pots kept full, and food was brought incredibly quickly. Total was $17/person after tax and generous tip. Given the paucity of good Chinese food in Chinatown, this place is definitely worth a return visit. They are open until 1am or 2am most nights, so could be a good place to go after events at the Verizon Center. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
