Sacramento - Hoi Cin report

JimGrinsfelder | Mar 25, 200809:58 PM

Based on what I read on this board, we went to Hoi Cin tonight for dinner.

It's a bit of a haul from downtown Sacramento, but it's worth it. Out US 50 to Watt or the one after it (started with a B, I think).

We ordered:

Wor Wonton Soup - terrific. Wontons with shrimp and pork were best I've had. Squid was tender. Broth was really good. I would order this every time I visit Hoi Cin.

Veggie Egg Rolls - very good. Fresh, crisp, tasty. Good dipping sauce. I would order this again.

Salt & Pepper Prawns - not good. Reasonably fresh shrimp, properly fried, but bland. I would not order this again.

Lettuce Seafood Wraps - good, but not great. The seafood filling was crunchy (water chestnuts) and fresh, but not particularly flavorful. I would not order this again.

Veggies in Garlic Sauce - great. The sauce was terrific. The veggies were very fresh and tender-crisp perfect. I would order this again.

Black Pepper Beef Chow Fun - great. The beef was tender and flavorful, the sauce good, the noodles were done right. I would order this again.

The service was friendly and good. The atmosphere is Strip Mall ++, not bad, not terrific, but frankly, I like it like that. I don't like fancy-schmancy places where I'm not comfortable bringing my kids to dine.
