Next April, Little Village Noodle House celebrates 20 years in business. The Smith Street locale is known for its bold flavors, and mixes a variety of styles to offer its customers the best of the best Chinese food.
“We started as a very casual restaurant, where the theme emphasizes on a village-like outdoor setting, away from your traditional cafeteria at most Chinese restaurants,” explains owner/operator David Chang. “For the food, we placed emphasis on Northern-style, Cantonese-style and American-Chinese fusion dishes.”
Its Honey Walnut Shrimp ($18.95), for example, is a hot-ticket item that uses high-quality jumbo shrimp that’s tossed in a garlic and green onion cream sauce. For its Orange Chicken ($12.75), Chang says real orange juice is used to construct its classic sweet and tangy sauce.
Little Village’s most sought-after rice dish, mean while, is the House Special Fried Rice ($11.75), which encompasses bountiful local flavors, like roast duck, char siu, shrimp, garlic, onion and soy sauce.
“Village foods are healthy, light, clean and bold,” says Chang. “These dishes are inspired by what I want to serve to my family. “I wanted to take this opportunity to thank all my loyal customers for their continuous support,” adds Chang.
“And anyone who hasn’t had a chance to try Little Village for the past 20 years, give us a try.”
