The King Wok is a basic fast food Chinese joint. It has a faded billboard menu above the counter with pictures of everything. I only get one thing, the General Tso's Chicken with white rice.

The bits of chicken are breaded, and still crunch with a slightly spicy sweet syrup. This means it is fresher than the places which have a vat of nuggets sopping in the sauce. Tasty without being overbearing. Not the best I have ever had, but close enough.

The rice was perfectly done. Sticky enough to make chopstick usage (Din-How, rounded, wood) easy, but loose enough to appeal to my American sensibilities.

Not one, but two fortune cookies (Shang Pin brand).
  • Today will be lucky and memorable for you.
  • You will always be surrounded by friends when you need them.
Customer service is not why I go to places like this, but in this case, the people are friendly. Food is quickly made, and, as today, we called ahead for a timely pick-up.

Seating is spare, but there are a few small tables. Plenty of parking is available as well.

If you live close, check out the King Wok 59 Chinese Restaurant.
