Liang's Village Cuisine

So me and hubby went and picked up his sister on Sunday. I didn't know that it was her birthday until the little one started mentioning it. So later on we all went out to have dinner together. Her chosen place was Liang's Kitchen in Cupertino. More like I kinda push the idea to her because I'm curious about the place. We've been to the mall before and saw that restaurant. But I never thought of going ourselves just because it's harder to order just two dishes when it's just the two of us. While with bigger group we can order and try more dishes.


We went in two cars and they got there first and was looking at the menu when we were trying to look for them. The place was not as big as I thought it was. It can only contain like 60 patrons all together. Even the waiting area was tiny and everybody kinda lined up against the wall.

I noted one item that was mentioned on a few reviews on Yelp which was the beef wrap. One thing learned though. Going to restaurant starving is as bad as doing grocery hungry. We ordered like mad. And some of the items we ordered double because we thought the size was going to be small. But actually the size was pretty decent. So that's other thing to note on.

When the first few items came out, we gobbled down like there's no tomorrow. The beef wrap was soo good. The skin was crispy. It kinda remind me of quesadilla in a roll. No cheese though. Spicy wonton, we had it at another restaurant. Good but nothing new. The garlic flavor went well with the wonton but it's kinda oily because of the chili oil they used. That night we ordered a bunch of little plates (that's not really little). In the end that's what this Liang's Kitchen is all about. They offered a varieties of small dishes, noodles (dry/wet), rice plate and dessert.

As you can notice from the pics, some of the dishes were very homely. Just a platter of rice, preserved veggies (hamchoy), minced pork and half an egg. Like something my mom would have made at home. I guess you live alone, eating out at this place won't break a bank. Average dishes go around $4-$6. It seemed that they started in Southern California (Arcadia, San Gabriel) and spreaded up here (North San Jose) and now in Cupertino.
