The food at the Far East Kitchen is pretty good, though it costs slightly more than I'm usually looking to pay when I go out in Hyde Park. It's a chill place with stereotypical Chinese decor and the oldies station playing quietly from one corner. The old couple that run it are very sweet and seem to always be there.
Like I said, the food is perfectly passable, but I don't often crave Chinese food, so I'd just as soon go to Chinatown when I do. I love the Far East Kitchen as a place to have some peaceful drinks with my friends. It's quiet, friendly, and it has a remarkably extensive drink menu. Ok, the zombies are highly inconsistent, the martinis are 25% vermouth, and kir royale tastes like it was made with Manischewitz. That's not the point.
The point is that this place is awesome, and by awesome, I mean totally sweet. The egg rolls are massive and they cost $3.50. The drinks are strong most of the time, though, like I said, they are entirely inconsistent. The people are very nice. The glassware is superb. Zombies come in tiki head glasses with the garnish on giraffe toothpicks. Nuff said.
