Tony and Kelly Chu opened Red Orchids China Bistro 10 years ago, spinning off from Kelly’s parents’ place, Joy Luck China, which was a favorite for takeout. From the very beginning, the couple was determined to deliver high-quality Chinese food, not the typical gloppy-sauced bland fare you’d find at the buffet table. And they’ve succeeded in doing just that. We love many things about Red Orchids, like the black bean flounder and the crispy fried red snapper. And we love when new dishes pop up on the menu. We love talking to Tony about wine and rum and indulging in a shot of ice cream, which Kelly makes in a rainbow of flavors, like black sesame seed, lavender, lychee, and ginger. And, ultimately, we just love Red Orchids. Period. —Stephanie Barna Dish (Winter 2014)
