China is a big place. Like, really big: nearly 1.4 billion people spread over 3.7 million square miles. A spate of regional Chinese restaurants in San Diego has shown that Chinese cuisine is more varied than once perceived. From the fresh seafood and vegetables of Canton and the numbing heat (mala) of Sichuan, to the handmade noodles of Shaanxi Province, we actually do have lots to choose from.
But the food of China’s cold, largely impoverished Northeastern reaches had yet to hit San Diego’s radar. Village North (4428 Convoy St., Suite 330) aims to change that.
