Hidden Chinese Food (sorta)

Everytime i drove on Jeffrey towards the north side of Irvine, I never once realized there were other chinese restaurants beyond Sam Woo and that whole asian-y square. Tucked near some fast food and other chain stores lies Tri-Village. It is a seemingly odd place for chinese, but it tastes good.

Aside from the funky name, tri-village has some quality food. It specializes in Northern Chinese food, including some tasty dishes that normal chinese places don’t have (see food below). The place seems much more personal than other chinese restaurants since it is not very large and is clean (!). Although we did not order the Peking Duck, the saw the chef come out 2-3 times to personally cut it in front of the table (it looked delicious). The food isn’t as good as the sublime Peking Restaurant in Westminster, but offers dishes that cannot be found elsewhere in Irvine. If you have a big party, reserve though, since it is small. I’d definitely go back to try some more of the northern dim sum dishes, and esp the eight treasure rice (we forgot to order it ><)

Assorted Peking Macaroni

A crazy name of a dish (actually means something with ear when properly translated). It is macaroni-like pasta cooked with meats and veggies. The pasta is much thicker than normal macaroni, and thus is somewhat bready.

Chinese Style Roast Beef Sandwich

The “bread” is a little too thick (this is a common here), so it takes away too much from the meat. Still good, but Peking Restaurant is much better at this dish

Orange Chicken (Choice of Beef) at Tri-Village Chinese Cuisine

Orange Chicken (Choice of Beef)

Orange Chicken is always good, but there is no fat here, and a lot of chicken. Perfect balance of chicken, breading, and sauce.

Spring Pancakes

Tasty, and they wrap it for you. go laziness!

Jing Dong Meat Pie

This dish would’ve been Perfect, but it was, again, too bready. It needs a little more bang for that much bread.

Wu-Xi Crispy Eel

Good, but nothing particularly special in terms of eel at Chinese restaurants. If you’ve never eaten eel before, it’d be a good place to start though

clean small chinese

for a chinese restaurant, this casual small place feels surprisingly clean and modern. if you’re in the mood for northern chinese dim sum, then tri-village is a not-too-shabby option. the service is quick and brisk like what you might expect from most chinese restaurants, and the food itself is alright…nothing spectacular. 3.5 stars for me.

General Tso's Chicken

not too bready at all, and comes w/a nicely arranged ring of (steamed?) broccoli. wasn’t bad, but wasn’t my cup of tea.

Green Onion Pancake - Green Scallion Pancakes at Tri-Village Chinese Cuisine

Green Scallion Pancakes

you get about 7-8 slices, but the pancakes don’t have much green scallion in them. still somehow, i managed to eat 3 slices, and wanted more.

Jing Dong Meat Pie

2.5 stars. it didn’t come w/as much meat as i thought it would, but i think of this dish as a thicker green scallion pancake filled w/ground meat. not a winner w/me.

Chive-village

It’s always nice to get a new Chinese restaurant in Irvine to try and clean one is even better. There’s all kinds of goodies here from peking duck to lettuce wrap to some northern dim sum dishes. The food was pretty good, but I wouldn’t say it was stellar since some of the items were a little skimpy on the meat (and heavy on the chives). If it’s a nice day you can sit outside and eat.

Jing Dong Meat Pie

Nice try, but clearly not enough meat to call it a meat pie. a little oily too.

Beef Noodle Soup

The claim is that this is Jackie Chan’s favorite (or something like that). It’s got decent spiciness and meat quantities.

Chives Turnover

Egg with vermicelli wrapped in some chinese pancake. Not bad, but needs more taste.

Steamed Fish (not on menu)

Pretty good, but the market rate for our 2 lb. fish was pretty pricey. The flavor was pretty standard for steamed fish. I wouldn’t order it again at these prices though.

Steamed Mini Pork Buns (8)

Porky and juicy – just what you want from these kinds of buns.

Chinese Style Roast Beef Sandwich

This beef wrapped in chinese pancake was good, but not as good as the one as the Peking Restaurant in Westminister. There were tons of chives in every bite.
