Full Kee--an enigma wrapped in a conundrum...

butterfly | Nov 17, 2003 08:05 PM

Had dinner in Chinatown tonight (Eat First) and decided to stroll by Full Kee to do some further reconnaissance.

Saw a Restaurant Supply truck pull away just as we got there and a man (who I did not recognize from the previous incarnation) enter the restaurant. We asked him if the restaurant was going to reopen and he said "yes, in the next two weeks." He further offered "the equipment just arrived today" and then quickly shut the door behind him.

We tried to dissect these brief statements on the way home... "New equipment": does this mean that the restaurant has changed hands? What was wrong with the "old equipment"? "Two weeks": this doesn't seem to jibe with recent reconnaissance from the VA location...

Incidentally, Eat First has a pretty extensive congee menu (12+ options). Can't say I'm an expert by any stretch of the imagination, but I can say that the preserved egg and pork version will stick with me for quite some time. Skip the oyster casserole. I noticed that they have some pretty interesting sounding specials on the wall and I saw a very promising pork dish being consumed by someone at the table next to us.

Has anyone eaten at the basement restaurant downstairs from Eat First?
