The East Side's Best Chinese Restaurant
The pearl has been an east side staple for as long as I can remember.
Nothing has changed: quality ingredients, simple, comfort food, that's not too heavy, not too salty, not too oily, and very flavorful. I've been a regular there for the past 15 some odd years, and have tried just about everything. I usually just get the pad thai with shrimp and chicken; it's my go to favorite meal. But if you want to try something different I also love the cursted pork in Hoisuin barbecue sauce- its an awesome summer dish. The portions are big enough to share (at dinner time) so I come with friends or family and we just order a couple dinner entrees and split a fried rice.
They have the best wonton soup and the best shrimp fried rice in cleveland. And that's just a simple fact, Go to any other chinese restaurant in Cleveland, then compare their wonton soup and fried rice to the pearl's...and you will see that there really is no comparison.
