Food Wall in JP

MB fka MB | Aug 30, 2007 08:11 AM

Got that once in a while feenin' for some good "bad" Chinese and figured that, based on other posts, Food Wall would be a good (enough) local source for some delivery. Wow, was I wrong. Yes, (I confess!) I was seeking out the ol' pu pu platter appetizers, plus some green beans. But c'mon, just because it's Americanized Chinese standards doesn't mean that it can't taste good and have a decent fry job. But wow, everything was in a pool of oil, WAY more than one would expect, and yet much of it was also dried out. Worst egg roll I've ever tasted. Most of the food hit the trash.

FWIW, my favorite egg roll/crab rangoon fix - believe it or not - was Lucky Garden on Concord Ave in Cambridge. The rest of their food is awful, but when you're looking for that fried fix, those two items are great. And I like the chicken wings at Qingdao - they are expertly fried, juicy but not greasy, and have lots of ginger flavor.
