Dynasty-scale dining

Original post made on Aug 17, 2007

With more than 200 dishes covering nearly every permutation of meat, seafood, vegetables, rice and noodles, Ming's aims to please even the finickiest of appetites. There are so many items to choose from that the menu can take longer to read than a chapter of "Ulysses."

I was directed to the article on Ming's after Google-ing Ming's Beef!

My family and I would always eat the the old location when we were celebrating a special event. Ming's was a family favorite for our (my twin's and mine) birthdays as we would get a birthday cake from a French bakery on Santa Crus Avenue in Menlo Park and bring it with us to Mings where we enjoy Ming's Beef and finish off the evening with a piece of cake, sharing it with our waiters, who would join us in a chorus of "Happy Birthday"

I moved away in the 70's and can still taste the Ming's Beef! I live in Japan now and wonder if anyone has come up with a recipe that is close to the wonderful taste of Ming's Beef?

Thanks for letting me share this memory!

My husnband and I have wonderful memories of Mings. Not only did we have special family dinners at Mings while growing up, we had our our wedding rehearsal dinner there in 1980. We live in Colorado now and would love the recipe for Mings Beef.

With almost no fast food restaurants in our area when I was growing up, when my mother needed a break we got Ming's takeout. Not too many of the fried prawns made it home to the dinner table! For 2 generations my family has been enjoying Ming's wonderful food. Thank you!

P.S. I really "need" your Chinese Chicken Salad recipe. :-)
