The Edwards' Cinema is located on Overland Road in Boise and also houses several restaurants and shops for people to shop and browze around before and after the movies. Mom and I decided to eat at Yen Ching, a Chinese Restaurant that serves Northern Chinese food at a good price.
It wasn't very busy in Yen Ching, and Mom and I found seats without trouble. You have to order at the counter at Yen Ching, and Mom and I took a couple of minutes to peruse the extensive menu. Mom went with her usual, Cashew Chicken while I went for the Shrimp and Lobster Sauce. Both meals cost us under $15 and Mom and I sat down to wait for our food which came with a small bowl of Egg Drop Soup to tide us over while waiting for the main course.
Our food came within 10 minutes after ordering, and Mom and I weren't disappointed. Both of our dishes came with our main courses and sides of Lo Mein and Steamed Rice. I have had Shrimp and Lobster Sauce at the Rickshaw Inn in Riverside, RI, and it was a thick brown sauce full of shrimp and chopped lobster, but the one at Yen Ching is just as good with a light yellow sauce with shrimp and lobster and a nice ginger flavor.
Mom and I filled our bellies nicely and made our way to see Blood Diamond at Edwards'. Yen Ching is also located in Downtown Boise, and I recommend it highly for the movie crowd any time they visit Edwards' and Boise.
