Green House is a dimly-lit, long and narrow Chinese joint filled with vinyl booths. Not exactly downscale, but not really a place to take a date, either.

On the other hand, the food is above average and has some unusual options. I had the dried bamboo shoot with fried tofu (~$10) and the sha cha potato (~$10). The dried bamboo dish came wonderfully presented, with fried tofu pockets lining the edges of the plate, and the bamboo thrown in the middle. The bamboo had a fermented taste that mixed well with the black pepper-covered tofu pockets.

The sha cha potato, which is an unusual offering, consisted of skillet-fried potatoes with a spicy, savory sauce. I liked this dish but it's a better one to share with people, alongside other dishes. This dish could be pretty boring on its own, though.

I like that they have brown rice and the service was friendly. If you're looking for a tasty, unusual Chinese meal, Green House merits a visit.

I don't know how long this place will be here. Vegetarian Chinese in New Jersey?

Visit it while you can, because the food is excellent. I loved the Mashed BBQ Tofu on Nori. This is a thin piece of tofu cooked on top of a sheet of nori, and topped with a tangy sweet sauce. Note that this is not American BBQ sauce, though it's vaguely similar.

The fried veggie balls were also delicious. We tried a number of entries. The Sha Cha Potato was a highlight, as was the Fried Tofu with Scallion and Ginger. The Golden Rings sounded really exciting, but were a disappointment. They weren't crispy, as you'd expect from the description, and they were drowned in gloopy sweet sauce.

I hope this place sticks around, as it's the best Chinese I've had in the part of New Jersey, and I'd love to go back again.
