King Fung ???'s

Foodiex2 | Feb 29, 2004 09:05 AM

Finally tried King Fung but we had a less than stellar meal so a few questions.

Went Friday afternoon around 4:30 or so after taking the rugrat to aquarium. When we got there the place was empy except for a few people waiting for takeout. We grabbed a booth and qickly scanned the menu. We ordered peking ravioli, steamed pork buns, chicken lo mein for our son and then yusiang (sp?) chicken and hu lan beef (again sp??). Peking rav were as described on this board. Sublime, greasefree, crispy on one side tender on the other. However there was no dipping sauce and we asked the waitress just acted confused and said no sauce. I liked the pork dumplings but hubby thought we have had much better at any local dimsum. I liked the flavor and texture of the beef but had to agree with my husband that it was about 98% celery, maybe 5 pces of very small beef slices and about 3 carrot slices. Same with the chicken dish, flavorful but only about 6 very small bites of chicken and the rest was all celery, no other veggies. Both dishs should have been spicy and we asked for it extra spicy. There was no discernable spice and no hot oil available, just the basic tomato based chili sauce which I didn't love adding to the beef. However, Lo mein was a big hit with our 2 1/2 year old though. He loved the extra thick noodles and tender chicken. He managed to eat almost 1/2 the serving which was huge!!

I was disapointed with the no sauce for the dumplings and for our spice request. Even more with the lack of meat in the dishes. My husband says he won't go back especially after my ravings for the past few months. I am begging for him to give it another try, this time for the peking duck.

So my question is: did we just order wrong?? or is it a case of stranger service? Since they didn't know us we didn't get the regular service or food??
