Excellent Chinese Takeout Spotted on LI

Gary | Mar 20, 2003 05:49 PM

OK, so I've been in my house for well over a year now. The other day, I am cleaning up one of the drawers in the kitchen with stuff that the former owners left behind: appliance manuals, calendars, and takeout menu's. Many of the takeout menu's were familiar and we had been to the places before because the places were within spitting distance.

There was one menu that I probably ignored in the past because the address seemed a little far for me and I thought they would not deliver.

Imperial Wok

The menu said The New York Times ****EXCELLENT**** - An Adventure in Standout Chinese.

Well, I'm bored with all of the chinese places near me evidneced by my propensity to order only Sesame Chicken these days. So I call them and order the Rainbow Tripple Delight.

Shredded Beed, Chicken, and pork sauteed with red peppers, bamboo shoots, and snow peas in a brown sauce. Also got the honey baby ribs.

Well, there is the option to order with brown rice, which I prefer. I consider this an excellent sign as well.

The Ribs were excellent and so was the main course. The food was very un-takeout like. It reminded me of the place that was across Queens Boulevard from our apartnment in Rego Park called Evergreen.

Well, I am home alone the other night and ordered from them again. This time, I ordered my old faithful Sesame Chicken. It came like I had never had it before. If you were looking for the typical Ultra Fried and Gooey Sesame Chicken, this would not be for you. But the Chicken was actually recognizeable, stir fried in a light sesame sauce with sesame seeds and broccoli. Again, quite un-fast food like.

Oh yeah, the dinner also comes with fresh made noodles with a cup of HOT mustard and duck sauce to dip them in.

They also have a Japanese/Sushi menu.
