Braised Meatball in Soy Suace at Wing's Kitchen

C. Simon | Jun 5, 2003 04:46 PM

After a very disappointing meal on my first visit to Wing's Kitchen (eggplant in a goopy, heavy-handed shanghaa-style sauce), I returned today for a second chance. This time I must have ordered much better.

Tasting the white rice is often a good method for predicting how much I enjoy food at a chinese restaurant. The quality of the rice can be a good sign of the care (or lack thereof) that the kitchen devotes to its food. Wing's may be an exception to that rule. Their mediocre, flavorless, white rice reminded me of my old roommate's attempts at Uncle Ben's.

But, the rest of the food was good.

First, soy sauce egg. Two hard-boiled eggs, sliced in half, marinated in soy sauce. Perfect.

Then, braised meatball. One large meatball (beef, I would guess), with a soy-ginger glaze, bathing in a liquidy soy-ginger sauce. Very good. The asian greens (I couldn't identify the type) that surrounded the meatball were also a good vehicle for the tasty sauce.

The total was something like $6.
