China King in CTown

gourmaniac | Feb 28, 2012 01:50 PM

China King opened 6 days ago in the old Rainbow Cafe space (Beach near Oxford). I tried it last week but they had not yet stocked more interesting items (e.g. lamb). The menu reminds me a little of King Fung (rice cakes with prok and pickled vegetables, shanghai chow mein, Peking duck with three courses) but also has elements of Taiwan cafe (beef with longhorn peppers, pork with potato silk). I tried the Hon Sue Lamb on rice ($7.50) which was very tender stewed lamb shoulder pieces in a nice brown sauce with too large pieces of ginger and scallion). Great meat, nice sauce but the knife work could have been better. Worth trying for something more complex.
