What’s really exciting about the little restaurant that opened last September is that it has a lot of dishes you won’t recognize, dishes that you’ve likely never had before. And that’s when things get fun.
Owner Yue “Joe” Cong told me after my three visits that he decided on that menu — a mix of familiar and unfamiliar — for very specific reasons. He knew that after working for a number of years at restaurant in U.S., he wanted to focus on what he calls “authentic” Chinese food, dishes he grew up eating in China before he moved here at age 21, and dishes he’d eaten outside of Omaha, in cities such as New York and Chicago.
