Orange Chicken Special at Han Dynasty
Han Chiang, the bombastic owner of Han Dynasty or Handy Nasty if you prefer, is preparing to “make Americanized Chinese food great again.” For a limited time, Chiang is serving an Orange Chicken dish on the menu of his Old City location. To go with the dish, he’s released the accompanying poster, which features a patriotic Chiang chasing a very orange caricature of Donald Trump as a chicken, with the headline; “Orange Chicken (white meat only)” on it.
Because Chiang usually shies away from American Chinese dishes, you won’t find General Tso’s chicken or pork fried rice at Han Dynasty. Instead, Chiang prefers the authentic heat of Sichuan cooking but he is offering this dish for a limited time. The orange chicken is listed at $12.95.

Tonight, Friday, May 6th, Han Chiang will be at the grill of Pat’s Steaks cooking up cumin pepper steaks. The Han Dynasty owner will be turning out his steaks from 9 p.m to midnight this evening.
Chiang’s appearance is part of Pat’s Steaks continuing Guest Chef Series. Owner Frank Oliveri has been inviting chefs to come up with their own twists on the cheesesteak. Participants have included Marc Vetri, Jose Garces and even vegetarian cheesesteaks from chef Sally Eisenberg.

But he’s clearly versed enough in the ways of Christmastime cooking to know the stereotype of the Jew on Christmas: Chinese food and a movie. Well this year, he’s actually preparing a feast for Hanukkah and throwing in some Christmas craft beer for fun.
