Today I was told by the phone order person at the May Wah fast food shop on Hester Street that the owner is retiring and will close up shop in the Chinese New Year, this coming February 17th, 2007.
For the last seven years I have relied on their lunch box delivery for rib-sticking home cooking and they will be sorely missed. So, folks, this is your last chance to chow down on their soy-braised chicken leg quarter (or juicy pork chop) with their home-style greasy thousand-calorie pickled cabbage & ground pork side dressing. If you really need a cholesterol fix, ask to upgrade from a single to a double (!) order of soy-marinated hard-boiled egg on the side.
Check out their delivery slips - the hardboiled egg is written in shorthand " + O ". How cute is that! In all, this lunch box special will set you back a total of five bucks, including the tip. Get it soon, though.
