Mandarin

I often ask my Davis County brothers to the North to give me some good restaurants to visit for when I happen to make it up there.  I’ve only done 2-3 reviews North of Salt Lake City, so I’m in no way, shape, or form an expert.  When I get the results back, they almost without fail include the Mandarin as a place I absolutely must try.  Well, a few months ago I knocked it off the bucket list and am here to report.

Egg Rolls

The egg rolls to start out our meal were egg-celent.  (see what I did there).  They were meaty, crispy, and came with some pretty tasty sweet and sour dipping sauce.

Creme Cheese Won Ton

Creme Cheese Won Ton, another Chinese staple in the appetizer section was another good choice.

Walnut Shrimp

Along with Mandarin being a recommended place to go visit, the recommended dish is often one of the shrimp dishes.  I have to admit the Mandarin does this dish pretty dang good, as it was my favorite of the night.  The shrimp had a nice crunch to them, it is tough to explain.

Lo Mein

Lo Mien

Another entrée we went with was the lo mien special of the month.  It had some chicken, Asian sausage, eggs, and other veggies.  This was another favorite of the night.  Mandarin does rice dishes well as they do noodle dishes.

Fried Rice

And speaking of fried rice, you get a huge plate to share with your table.  As I dug in I wondered to myself how much rice this place goes through every night.

Just a few loose ends about the Mandarin.  They are busy, all of the time.  Expect to wait unless you get there right away.  They don’t take reservations but you can call ahead and get placed on the wait list.  Our table was right next to the corner rounding into the kitchen.  The place was really hopping.  It is easy to see why it is highly recommended and a community favorite.  Also being one of the most beloved Chinese restaurants in the state of Utah, the owners are actually not Chinese, they are Greek.  Don’t let that keep you away though.  It’s a must try here in Utah.  Check out their menu and website here.
