A very unlikely sounding combination of foods ended up tasting extremely good! This Chinese Mexican cuisine menu was a bit confusing at first, then the nice gals behind the counter started us off with a first time guest 'sampler' preview of the menu. They gave us all (6 of us) a small amount of 5 or 6 of their most popular menu items before we ordered, then helped us to figure out how to order. What a great way to help newcomers decide on their meal choices! Most of us chose the combo plates - 2 entree items & 2 sides. We really liked the carnitas, jade red chicken, emerald chicken, and egg foo yung. I had the carnitas in a quesadilla, but you can have any entree just plain, as a burrito or quesadilla. You can also order rice bowls with any entree instead of combo plates. The favorite side of the night were the Cuban black beans - really good! And, as a special treat... The servers brought us all a snicker doodle cookie with each dinner - yummy!
Relatives who are locals, and have been going to the original Chino Bandido in Phoenix for many years told me about this gem - so glad they did! The next time I visit the area, I will definitely try to get back!
