A Rising Star Among Kosher Chinese Restaurants
How does a Chassidishe young man from Williamsburg, who admittedly knew nothing about running a restaurant and even less about Chinese cuisine, run Borough Park’s finest eatery? Surprisingly, the answer is very well! Sholom Witriol, China Glatt’s young entrepreneur laughs today when he remembers his introduction to Chinese food not so long ago. He had ordered Beef Chow Mien, without actually knowing what the dish was like and was so disappointed that he never returned to the restaurant. “It wasn’t the restaurant’s fault,” he confides, it’s just that he doesn’t like Chow Mien, even from his own establishment. Yet, in spite of that inauspicious first experience, Sholom recognized both the need for a first rate restaurant in Borough Park and the lack of good Chinese cuisine.
Today, five years later, after eating countless meals in kosher Chinese restaurants throughout the city, observing thereby what and what not to do, visiting restaurant and food shows, and studying cookbooks, Sholom speaks with authority and obvious delight about the food served at his restaurant. He continues expanding his expertise and is always on the lookout for a new recipe. Recently he has initiated weekly specials at China Glatt to spotlight both new dishes and the cooking talents of the restaurant’s three Chinese chefs! Each chef specializes in the food of the region in China that he comes from, ensuring the authenticity of the dishes.
Understanding and never losing sight of his customers’ needs, Sholom makes certain that the food served at China Glatt will not offend the taste buds of the heimishe diners who frequent China Glatt by allowing some accommodations. Curry, for example, is used with restraint, while chili peppers have been eliminated completely. At the same time, however, taste is never sacrificed. Sauces are always rich, full-bodied and distinctive.
