Imperial Wok

On recommendations from two Chinese friends, we tried Imperial Wok, on Rt. 22 in White Plains (just south of the Kensico circle). It's quite good and we will certainly go back.

Their shrimp dumplings are light and tasty. Their scallion toast is pretty good -- it's never my favorite nibble, so I'm not a great judge, but it was certainly the best I can recall having. And their Chicken Marinated in Wine is a pretty good rendition of drunken chicken.

The best dish of the evening was beef with Chinese tea sauce. Lightly spicy and very flavorful. Our order of clams with pea greens was misheard as crab with pea greens, but it was delicious so we didn't complain. Taiwan rice noodles are good, basically chicken lo mein with rice noodles instead of lo mein.

They have some interesting Szechuan dishes that we'll try on a future visit. Anyone know what sea slug is?
