The Chen Wok


Made a trip to Chen Wok for lunch. The food is pretty good, you can eat in but the place is really what we would refer to as a “Take out Joint”. When you dine in everything comes in styro take out boxes anyway. It doesn’t affect the taste however. The wor wonton soup is some of the best I have ever had. I usually measure a Chinese restaurant’s quality by the Kung Pao chicken. The Chen Wok’s Kung Pao is a bit on the sweet side, but still good none the less. Today my wife and I had the fried wontons, House Special Chicken, and wor wonton soup. A bit of advice, the house special chicken really doesn’t need the sauce so we get it on the side. This sauce is also a bit sweet so a little goes a long way.

The owner is very nice and his cooks are adept. We have never had a long wait, and though he has several locations the food hasn’t suffered the usual chain restaurant malaise. Places like the Panda Express chain are the reason people don’t like Chinese food. The Chen Wok is a reasonable alternative. For decent Chinese food at a reasonable price, though without the ambiance of formal Chinese dining, this restaurant is a good bet.

If you want to see what real Oriental food looks like check out Foodcrazee - he has recipes and reviews of various Malaysian restaurants. The pictures of the food are worth the trip!!!

FoodCrazee: You are welcome - I shoudln't be comparing the wonderful food you have on your Blog with Chinese food that comes on a styrofoam tray. You really show some exotic places and I love the recipes! I do use your links, but enjoy reading your Blog.

I made the mistake of going to Panda--gak--Express because it was convenient. I think next time I'll opt for the gas station sandwich instead.
