Please help! We can't find a single place that does Chinese food that tastes like it does back East. Or a place that does crab cheese/crab rangoon, or good spare ribs. We tried a few places but the food has been hit or miss. Golden Wok in Cupertino was not good, no flavor to the food whatsoever. Really odd, and the only time we've felt that way. We also tried China Shuttle and were not impressed (very expensive for what they give, and the quality). The best we have found, and a place that actually does a decent Moo Goo Gai Pan, is next to the Australian Expat store on Stevens Creek Blvd. in San Jose (Soong Soong I believe). However, we went there for lunch and again for dinner after receiving a great first order, and the food was not the same.
Basically we're looking for killer: Moo Goo Gai Pan, General Chicken, and Crab Rangoon.
BTW - we used to haunt Crazy Buffet (only for a few select items - crab legs and crab rangoon, and filling up on hot and sour soup). Ever since their upgrades, the food is made differently, course the legs are the same, but many of the other things we snacked on just are different. We still go but not as often. I know, it's a buffet - but 14.99 for unlimited crab legs, it's a deal.
