China Chef – Ypsilanti, MI

by John on October 1, 2009 · 6 comments


I love me some Chinese take-out.  Delicious, cheap, and largely portioned.  This is my daily formula when looking for lunch, and China Chef always hooks me up with one of the greatest lunch specials in the world.  Your choice of rice(chicken fried, shrimp fried, steamed, ect.), a main item and an egg roll for $4.29.  This ends up costing you a little under $2 per pound.  I have to admit that eating at a Chinese restaurant with an entirely Spanish speaking kitchen staff is a little odd, but they put out some of the best Chinese take-out I have had.

Take a look at this pile of Chinese greatness:


General chicken with fried rice

And if you have what some may call an eating problem like I do, they have great dumplings for only $2.25.


Nothing unique or special.  Just a whole lotta good Chinese food for not a lot of cashish.  Depending on how poor I am, this can be lunch AND dinner.  Gotta cut back somewhere in these harsh economic times.  Thankfully, China Chef is there for me.

That’s a great deal. The pound to dollar ratio is a statistic not used enough. That’s gotta be an archived picture…or is it already snowing in Michigan?

Haha no snow yet. Archived picture.

I have my version of China Chef in Indy. $4.75 for soup, entree and egg roll, you just can’t beat it. I wonder how they make money at all. It looks good, I see 15 pieces of chicken and 3 broccoli, nice ratio!

It is funny that you said that you find it odd that the Spanish speaking staff cooks Chinese food. In New York, it took me a few months to get used to the fact that Asians cook all of the food at Mexican food joints and Latinos (or Hispanics, I forgot the preferred PC term) cook all of the Asian food.

Thank you for some other informative blog. The place else may I get that kind of info written in such a perfect manner? I have a undertaking that I’m simply now working on, and I have been on the look out for such information.
