Although located slightly out of the way, China Spice offers unique cuisine at discounted prices. The dining room is fun, colorful, and modern. The cuisine served at China Spice is both traditional as well as exotic so anyone can enjoy this casual restaurant that is close enough to the casino to stop in for a quick lunch while gambling. The dining room is decorated with contemporary furniture that is complemented by unique Asian artwork on the walls. Executive chef Tony Lee has home to China Spice all the way from Hong Kong to re-create dishes native to that area. Traditional favorites like General Tso’s sauce is used to coat shrimp instead of traditional beef to add a fun twist to the dish. As an appetizer, try the crispy crab claws that are dipped in batter and served in a traditional sauce. Pot stickers and chicken lettuce wraps are a few other favorite starters. Their signature dish at China Spice is the fried garlic-marinated chicken which is coated in a spicy and savory peanut sauce. Dishes like hot pots are served traditional in the same vessels that they are cooked in. The Beef hot pot is served with beef, vegetables, and a few spices to give it an extra kick. Other signature dishes include the Peking duck. The half Peking Duck really draws in the crowds because they offer it at such discounted prices when the restaurant is slow. Another must try are the spare ribs. The jan kwong ribs are braised on the bone and then marinated in a sweet black soy sauce that is very rich and gives the meat plenty of flavor.
Since China Spice is sensitive to the fact that not everyone loves things spicy, they customize the heat level to meet the request of diners for each individual dish. For traditionalists, try the sweet and sour chicken or the fish-of-the-day. Also, don’t forget about dessert, China Spice offers cakes and other items like crème brulee that you normally don’t find on the menu at a Chinese restaurant.
