Mountain Palace - Zha Qie He

The weekend special at Mountain Palace is Zha Qie He which is literally "fried eggplant box." It consists of ground beef cooked in ginger and other mixed spices placed inside slices of eggplant which are then pan fried. It is served with rice and a spiced peanut and celery salad. We feel safe to say you will not find this as the weekend special at any other restaurant in the immediate area (at least within 8,000 miles). Come to Mountain Palace this weekend to enjoy this tasty unique dish or any of our other northern Chinese items. Friday 6 to 9, Saturday 12 to 9 and Sunday 12 to 6. Chinese medical exercise class will continue at Mountain Palace at 11:00 Saturday with continuing emphasis on neck and shoulder issues. Eleven miles north of Ligonier left off of Route 711 onto Creek Road directly across from Mirror Lake.  724 717-8614
