Ordering tips for Yue Kee Chinese cart?

GDSwamp | May 6, 2008 01:07 PM

Just went to the Yue Kee cart for the first time, after reading about it here and elsewhere. I got ginger chicken (it was mentioned in a LaBan review taped to the truck - lots of talk of crisp scallion greens and spicy ginger). It was fine, but pretty much what you'd expect from your average Chinese lunch truck - fresher tasting, less gloppy maybe, but not super special.

Most of the other folks ordering and picking up food looked to be of Chinese descent; I'm wondering if I got the gringo special, or if I just ordered badly (possibly ginger chicken doesn't offer much opportunity for the cook to show his stuff).

Can anyone rec particular dishes? Should I say something to the woman taking the orders to indicate that I want the "real thing?"
