maybe it's because i'm asian, or maybe it's that this town has the absolute worst chinese food in the country, but this place is awful. the fried rice had fish paste in it, the spicy dishes i ordered had no spice, and overall, it was just the worst chinese food i've ever had. considering this is my 33rd move, that says a lot. it came highly recommended around town when we moved here, and the prices are very good, the large portions alike most chinese food places. from my experience, this town doesn't really do spice, or asian food, so maybe it is just that people think this food is good comparitively. seriously, if you think this chinese food is good, you need to go to chicago, or preferably san francisco, try some there, and then compare. we threw all of it out. i am not a picky eater, and have eaten silk worms before (thanks to my korean mother, who forces me to try everything) and i would rather eat them raw than eat here again. this place frightened me away from asian food out here all together. my husband finally made me try asiana, which was better, so maybe it's not hopeless, but i will never try chinese food in this town again.
