Ming Shee

I hadn't been to Ming Shee, 3510 N. University Street in Peoria, for quite some time until visiting this week.
The dining area has a few booths and tables, so if you decide to eat in, there will most likely be a place to sit. On the day StfRon and I stopped in, there were a couple of tables open.
I checked out the large color photos on the board, and went with the Hunan chicken lunch special, served with an egg roll, a piece of crab rangoon and fried rice.
The Hunan chicken was good, the crab rangoon was full of cream cheese and onion flavor, and the egg roll was filled with crisp cabbage. Everything was served piping hot.
StfRon had the General Tso's chicken special, which came with the same sides.
With a couple of large iced teas, our bill was about $13.
Ming Shee also offers carryout and catering, and has a Bartonville location on Garfield Avenue.

October, 2009 — I still visit Ming Shee several times a month. They now serve bubble milk tea, which is an interesting treat.

We grab a few entree's to go almost every Sunday evening from Ming Shee. Their food is great... although I think they cook with considerably more oil than at Express Wok on Pioneer Park.

I remember back in the days, they had the whole building, and one of the BEST buffets around- This was before Kenny Rogers Roaster came around.

I love Ming Shee! It's my favorite Chinese food in the area. I try to stop every time I'm in Peoria or Bartonville.
We're supposed to get like 4" of snow tonight, but I do need to head over to Bartonville to drop some stuff at the folks....hmm...I think you just made my dinner plans!
