From the street to the restaurant, it’s a Chinese-inspired menu at Chinatown Market.
But what if you could have a dinner party, too?
The restaurant, located on the corner of Shattuck Avenue and Lincoln Street, features a variety of dishes that can be served in a variety, if not all, of the restaurant’s 21 cuisines.
For starters, there’s a “pizza” sandwich that features an extra-sharp tomato and a slice of cucumber.
Next up, there are “steamed cabbage rolls” that are filled with cabbage and tofu.
Then there’s “steaming noodles” and “fried duck” bowls.
And the menu also features a selection of salads, including a variety made with wild boar and chicken.
In addition to the menu, the restaurant offers a variety that is specifically tailored to your taste and budget.
To start, there is a “lunch buffet” that features three different plates: chicken, egg and vegetable soup.
There is also a “sandwich buffet” with a different variety of sandwiches, and a “chicken salad” that comes with a salad, rice and salad dressings.
And for dessert, there will be a selection from a variety desserts, including “crème brûlée,” a tart and creamy mousse made with coconut milk, and “sliced apple,” a sweet apple tart that is filled with fresh whipped cream.
The dinner buffet is the most expensive.
It starts at $65 and includes a selection meal with wine, cocktails, a buffet, and dessert.
And to top it off, there can be a wine and dessert party with up to four guests.
While the dining options at Chinavans Market are impressive, there aren’t many restaurants in the area that offer the variety and price of Chinavas, said co-owner and chef Kevin O’Neill.
“Chinatown Market is really the only one of its kind,” he said.
“We have a lot of other great Chinese restaurants that are around the corner, but they’re just not as good.”
