The legend of the Chinese phoenix states that it is the mythical king of all birds. With the head of a peacock, body of a swan and wings of a golden cockerel, they are believed to be messengers of happiness. Incidentally, the Chinese phoenix is not related to the bird that we know in the Western world that rises from the ashes and symbolises rebirth.
Fenghuang are mythological birds of East Asia that reign over all other birds. The males are called Feng and the females Huang. In modern times, however, such a distinction of gender is often no longer made and the Feng and Huang are blurred into a single feminine entity so that the bird can be paired with the Chinese dragon, which has male connotations.
Great food for reasonable prices. I had the Mongolian Beef and it was great. Outstanding sushi too. Highly recommend.
Phoenix has a lot of restaurants. In fact, thanks to the fact that you can cook an egg on the sidewalk half the year, Phoenix pretty much is a restaurant. Think fresh mozzarella with bacon relish, brisket, or egg yolk raviolo -- paired with an exceptional wine, of course.

The males were originally called feng and the females huang but such a distinction of gender is often no longer made and they are blurred into a single feminine entity so that the bird can be paired with the Chinese dragonwhich is traditionally deemed male. A common depiction of fenghuang was of it attacking snakes with its talons and its wings spread. According to the Erya 's chapter 17 Shiniaofenghuang is made up of the beak of a roosterthe face of a swallowthe forehead of a fowlthe neck of a snakethe breast of a goosethe back of a tortoisethe hindquarters of a stag and the tail of a fish. The fenghuang's body symbolizes the celestial bodies: the head is the sky, the eyes are the sun, the back is the moon, the wings are the wind, the feet are the earth, and the tail is the planets.
