At Lee Lee’s, you won’t’ find a humongous menu that requires at least four folds to manage, and Chinese horoscopes are non-existent. What you will find is a menu that features a selection of Chinese-American favorites like kung pao chicken, black pepper beef, and General Tso’s chicken. Lee Lee’s amps up the traditional Asian carry-out by adding a fun, energetic environment. It’s a small, colorful place with popping red walls and vibrant yellow accents. It’s the work of Lily Lei and long-time friend Karalee Nielsen Fallert, who opened up successful joints like Poe’s Tavern, Taco Boy, Monza, and Closed for Business. We recommend starting with a Shanghai Shandy and chicken lettuce wraps, and working your way to the hong sho ro, a sinful specialty consisting of caramelized pork belly in a sweet and savory five-spice sauce. And don’t forget the salt and pepper shrimp — they’re addictive. —Eric Doksa
Dish (Summer 2015)
A unique spot on the outskirts of town for freshly made Chinese food that doesn't skimp on the flavor.
