To find some unique offerings, peep the chef's specialties on the menu. Diners can find 20 different selections to sample, some regular and some for those with a spicy desire, such as the black pepper steak and the house spicy noodles.

Derek Chauvin, the Minneapolis Police Officer who killed George Floyd last May, was found guilty of all charges on Tuesday.

A great option can be found with the Szechuan crispy chicken. This dish comes with breaded chicken, peppers and onions, all surrounded by the signature Szechuan sauce and a side of white rice.

This selection proves incredibly flavorful and filling. There's some saucy goodness with the chicken as the distinct Szechuan flavor soaks all the pieces and vegetables, which are cooked well. The white rice is fluffy and gives a great balance. All is a tasty ensemble.

Diners should also consider grabbing one of the many lunch and dinner specials available, which can pair one of your favorite entrees with egg rolls, steamed or fried rice all for as little as $5.25 starting price.

For more information, call 219-322-1122 for Schererville and 219-923-7170 for Griffith.
