The point of 'Tuscaloosa Gems' is to promote local bussines here in T-Town that are forgotten or lowkey.

I want to highlight, Mr.Chen's Authentic Chinese Cooking and Oriental Market located at 3434 514 14th Street right across the train tracks. I was first introduced to this place by a friend that said 'they have the best soups in town' and he was right about that. I was sick on a hot summers day in October and he had the remedy ready on his hip, and it was only 4 blocks from where we were.

Mr. Chen's is a cornerstone in the Tuscaloosa community and has been recognized for its outstanding Chinese cuisine, excellent service and friendly staff. Their Chinese restaurant is known for its modern interpretation of classic dishes and its insistence on only using high quality fresh ingredients.

Some dishes you have to try when you go their are:

  • Sizzling Beef
  • Kung Pow Beef
  • Moo Goo Gai Pan
  • Seaweed Salad
  • Wooton Soup
  • Tofu Clam Soup
  • Golden Chicken FIngers

Let's not forget they have the only true Chinese grocery store here in Tuscaloosa, with 8 isles of pure oriental flavor and flair you'll walk out with more than you thought you did. The most beautiful things about this store is, it's local as you or am I. Go give them a try tonight and thank me later, they are located at 3434 514 14th Street.
