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.
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.
