The spread of Chinese food in New Orleans continued last week as Ming's Chinese (7224 Pontchartrain Blvd., 504-333-6341) opened in West End.
Located in the former home of Zachary's by the Lake, Ming's is owned and operated by Ming Joe, whose family ran two Uptown Chinese restaurants in the 1980s and '90s. Ming's focuses on Cantonese-style dishes such as stir-fried black bean chicken and pan-fried noodles and also offers some Sichuan dishes. The menu includes popular Americanized Chinese dishes such as honey-walnut shrimp and sesame-crusted chicken. Ming's is open for lunch and dinner daily and offers take out and delivery services.
Bao & Noodle (2700 Chartres St., 504-272-0004; www.baoandnoodle.com) opened recently in Bywater, and Red's Chinese (3048 St. Claude Ave., 646-515-0538; www.redschinese.com) is expected to open this fall.
