New cool finds are in abundance on the west side of the city of youngstown.
Steel Street - home to the Open Hearth and its art deco basement/party room, home to the Palm Cafe and its Croatian barbecue goodness, home to Roscoe's butcher shop and its great cuts & prices, and home to County Mayo and its Irish vibes - is now home to a new entity:
Shanghai-based Cuisine at the Orthodox Church every Thursday.
St. Michael's Orthodox Church, right where Steel Street passes over I-680, opens its social hall as both a dine-in or take-out option for homemade (always non-fried, a nice change) chinese food.
Every week, this $5 meal will feature food like this:
Above is pork in a brown sauce (non-fried), with a cabbage dish and brown rice.
Below, shredded chicken with the same cabbage side and white rice.
All types of chinese teas for free, or free coffee.
Desserts for a buck or two extra.
a beef dish, with the classic (but seldom found in local chinese restaurants/take-out) tomatoe and egg mixture will be on the menu.
But why is there a Shanghai-style chef operating in St. Michael's Orthodox Church on Steel Street?
That's for you to figure out.
