The interior looks okay. But the only Chinese people in there was the staff. Not a good sign. Just as at Fu Shing last month, I ordered the Kung Pao chicken lunch special as a comparison. Bad move. You can see the freebie pickled cabbage above - too sweet for me. The egg drop soup was cornstarchy, thick and slimy. Not appealing. Had to put a lot of pepper in it but after a few spoonfuls I stopped. Couldn't put it down.
The Kung Pao was actually sweet tasting and very saucy! No good! Only green onions and peanuts and a few tiny bits of peppers. Give me Fu Shing anyday. And the rice was dry and old! Yuck. I won't be back here. Yang Chow - You're OUT!
On my way out, I was thinking I need some coffee to get the taste out of my mouth. I was surprised to see a Zagat Rated sign on the door. Maybe they have some good dishes? A hidden menu? I don't know. Not worth my time to look into - there's more chow out there to explore.
