About Sang Kee

Ellen | Jan 3, 2005 08:30 AM

I live in the burbs and every now and then I'll bring home Chinese from the city so I'll have some for the week since there is no edible Chinese food in lower Bucks. When I do get into town for a Chinese meal its usually dim sum at Ocean Harbor or Lakeside Deli. I stopped at Sang Kee (I had a menu and called ahead) and picked up an order of beef chow fun, chicken and eggplant in garlic sauce, cold sesame noodles, and shrimp dumpling soup. Everything but the soup was terrible. Both the eggplant and chow fun were tasteless and overwhelmingly oily. The sesame noodles were dry and somewhat sesame tasting and made with thin rice vermicelli, which was unusual. I emphasized that I wanted spicy on the eggplant but it wasn't. I didn't order Peking Duck because I felt that it wouldn't be a good takeout item. I would go back for the shrimp dumpling soup, which had a good flavorful broth with a good amount of pretty good dumplings, but other than that, forget it. Did I just get the wrong stuff from this restaurant or are there better places I should target for takeout next time?
