With its aged red velvet booths and stuffed quail on the mantel, Desert Jade looks like it might have been a semi-cool steak shack at one time. But as the name implies, Desert Jade is strictly Chinese, the sort of old-school Chinese joint that's on every other corner in Brooklyn, usually next to some pizza palace. The offerings may seem standard -- egg foo young, sizzling rice soup, sesame beef, etc. -- but don't discount them. What may be strictly perfunctory at other Chinese spots is chock-full of flavor at Desert Jade, and usually dirt cheap. The pot stickers alone are the biggest we've ever seen in PHX, and just as good as what you'll get in any big-city Chinatown.
