I have previously posted about the lack of decent Chinese takeout in the east village, my neighborhood for the past two years. But we came in on Sunday night around 8 from the Hamptons, and that was our craving. With misgivings, we tried this. We usually suck it up and order from Chinatown Brasserie or Spice, but we wanted old style Chinese. Well, 45 minutes later, not only was the food mediocre, they totally screwed up our order. Fortunately, we keep duck sauce and hot mustard in the fridge, cause that was not in the bag. We got a double order of chicken and broccoli (ordered one), moderately edible. No sauteed string beans. Wonton soup like dishwater. Never again. Was too late to bother calling, not worth it. Should have opened a couple of cans of tuna. Please, if anyone has a decent Chinese place near Astor Place, please share it!
