For 37 years (2 years before Art Fischer founded our group), Pig Heaven has been serving up Chinese food to loyal upper East-Siders!!! It is about time that The Single Gourmet enjoy what others in the neighborhood have been recommending to me for years. 4-stars on yelp and Zagat rated 21, they say “If pig is what you want, this UES Chinese favorite run by gracious Nancy Lee is heaven indeed for anything pork-related, with a lineup showcasing its signature spareribs; the word is definitely out, so expect lots of company at the trough.” Chinese New Year’s came early this year and it technically ends a few days before our meal, but that doesn’t stop us from enjoying the incredible menu that Nancy has put together for us. Our menu is FABULOUS. Nancy gave us the best of her options as we start off with their most popular soup, chicken velvet corn soup, then items such as meat dumplings, scallion pancakes (hers are different than any out there), crystal shrimp dumplings, their famous BBQ Spare Ribs, Peking Duck with their in-house recipe followed by their most popular dish the Grand Marnier shrimp, orange chicken, beef and broccoli, their “all ingredient” yang chow fried rice and string beans.
