Bad Takeout Food at Sam Woo Irvine

elmomonster | Oct 26, 200505:29 PM

OH MAN...I just had the worst take-out meal from Sam Woo Express in Irvine. I take back what I said about it being a good value. Even at $4, the meal I just had was bitterly disappointing.

The Orange Peel Chicken was so dry it felt like I was gnawing on a dog's leather chew toy.

The Tofu and Pork dish was no better. The fried tofu had the texture of an old, used sponge. And I normally love tofu! The chunks of roast pork was slightly better, but the gloopy sauce was like soy slime.

The Chow Mein was flavorless and cold.

I should've heeded my own warning of ordering a noodle dish when the steam-trays look bad...or better yet, walked out and gone somewhere else.
