We don't eat table cloth, we eat the foods. The foods are so good that makes PF Chang's look like a boy scout and Bo Ling simply a joke. Try their Braised Lamb Stew hot pot during winter, Stir Fried Clams with Black Bean Sauce and even their Yeung Chow Fried Rice are a lot better than many top notch restaurants in Hong Kong. You won't regret your visit.
Watch for their hours. They are closed Monday now and only open for dinner Tuesday thru Sunday from 5pm to 1 am.
Maybe you don't like it... because it's TOO authentic. If you like Panda express or P.F Chang's which are always near the top in city search Chinese restaurant category. Those are American Chinese food. Jen Jen's won't put much sugar or ketchup in the dishes like American Chinese restaurants. The food tastes just like Hong Kong in China. Atmosphere is nothing special. Maybe even less than average... so it's not for romantic date night. But it's great to satisfy your hunger. You'll get a big bowl of rice with the meal. Our recommendations are Baby bak choy with garlic, Beef with black pepper sauce and chef's special pan fried noodles.
I had read that Jen Jen's was the most authentic Chinese food in KC. It is! The restaurant is in a strip mall and not all that attractive outside or in, but neither are most of the restaurants and little noodle shops we loved the most on our trips to Hong Kong. The waiter, Kenny, was friendly inspite of being very busy, and helped make the experience very pleasant, helping me to choose foods that my 9 year old would enjoy (she loved the chicken with ginger and green onion) and give me the taste of non-Americanized Chinese I've missed a lot. The fish maw with crab soup was a pleasant surprise, and the honey walnut shrimp salad was unbelievable. The shrimp lacked the usual heavy greasy batter Americans seem to think is mandatory for Chinese food, but seemed to have a super thin and light batter and was deep fried, coated with a lightly seasoned mayo and set atop steamed broccoli, with sugar glazed walnuts sprinkled around. My husband tried the leftovers later that night and said it brought back Hong Kong all over again. The waiter later brought a complimentary hot dessert soup (not on the menu) lightly flavored with peanut butter and with large pearl tapioca floating through it. It was simple delicious.
