hell no! – wow what a horrid little joint!
me and a buddy went here one night at about 1am as its the only place open at this hour, that does this kind of food!..
the second i walked in, all i could smell was cigarete smoke, Disgusting..
look to the right of the door and they have a fish tank that is full of the most nasty looking horrible dirty black water with crabs in it! a couple were upside down just dead still..(wouldnt suprise me if they were dead)
the food was no good! i got a combo lo-mein, it was 100% rasteless, every bite i took.. just tasted like water, even the bigger strips of beef, just tasted of water, no meat taste at all, same with the shrimp and noodles, i think they musta just thrown it in a pot and boiled it all.
overall, horrid place, doooo not go there.(ill never be going back!)
Best authentic Chinese IN town – Guys, this is the real thing. The place is not the prettiest place on earth. It's small and when you walk in, everybody looks at you(especially if you are white.) But the food is amazing. Try the curry hotpot, it's hot, tender and delicious. Also, call one day before you go and ask for the crispy chicken. You will not believe what you are eating. Now, the serving style is a little different, it's all chopped in little pieces, however, it is goooood.
Their seafood is great too. Pick something out from the little tank and ask them to cook in in ginger and green onion style. It's the best.
Their usual fried rice, fried noodle, fried chow fun are great. I have been living in the KC area for a long time and I lived in asia for a while, this is as close as you can get from the streets of Hong Kong.
The Real Thing! – Jen Jen's is probably the best authentic Chinese food in the area. White people must ask for the brown tri-fold type menu. They will try to give you the red one with boring American sweet and sour dishes. Ask them what the specials are (they are usually written in Chinese on the wall). Fantastic food and very reasonably priced.
