Chinatown Fail

After a pretty lackluster first friday and major fails with the parking machines, we tried to eat at Han Dynasty. That wasn’t going to happen without a long wait, so we ended up in Chinatown at Sang Kee Peking Duck House.
H/A always like to get the mayonnaise shrimp with walnuts, so he ordered that. Well folks, let’s just say that you shouldn’t order shrimp with walnuts at a restaurant that bills itself as a duck house. We think they used panko breadcrumbs, which is just wrong for this. And instead of coming with broccoli, it came on top of a bed of shredded iceberg lettuce. It was all just weird. And the oranges tasted like they were rotten. But one highlight – the walnuts were delicious! But overall, it was pretty much a fail. I think it’s a smart thing to stick with the duck or the roast pork or something at this joint.
I ordered one of the ho fun dishes… honestly, I don’t even know which one it is. I saw some guy at another table with it and I just pointed to it and said that’s what I want. So that’s what I got. And it was hot and delicious and noodley and meaty and we ate it all. This sure beat the shrimp dish… by about a thousand shrimp. We had some major communication issues that day. We asked for a couple of bowls of rice and we got a couple of empty bowls. Then we asked for a couple of bowls of rice and we got one little bowl of rice. Oh well.
