Chinatown's Full Kee vs. Wegman's

Joe H. | Apr 6, 2004 10:54 AM

While this is going to sound like an exaggeration, my wife and I had lunch at Chinatown's Full Kee last week sharing three entrees. Since Wegmans has opened I've probably now eaten my way through 30 or so of the 40+ items on their "Asian" food bar.

We agreed. Wegmans was better. While they don't offer offal and the dishes are really sanitized/safer versions of what is at Full Key, they basically TASTED better. This is as much of a comment of how bad Full Key was as it is about Wegmans being better than expected.

So much for credibility! Still, Wegmans has some surprisingly good dishes as well as makes excellent sandwiches on the bread baked in their wood burn brick bread oven. In fact on some breads I would actually put them only a step behind the Bread Line.
