Tasty Wok & Charlie's Steakhouse

Soup | Nov 29, 2007 01:28 PM

Was in Orlando and went to the Tasty Wok for lunch (E. Colonial). Order more than I could eat but the place is really reasonable. I had the roast pig and roast duck on Rice. think it cost $7. More than I could really eat. The skin of the pig was amazingly crisp and light and the meat was flavorful. Some of the peices did have a bit too much fat layer but easy to pick out. The dish came with a side of chinese brocolli. The Duck was outstanding. Skin crisp and the meat juicy and full of flavor Dip both into the pepper oil and it is heven on a plate for really cheap.

I also order the shrimp dumpling in noodle soup w/ thin egg noodles. The soup and egg noodle was pretty standards. The dumpling a bit below average. Had better on previous visits. I was there around 1:30 and every table was taken and had to wait. I would definitely recommend this place. Don't look for ambiance.

Also went to charlie's steak house on international drive. Had the rib eye on the bone May be it was because I didn't have lunch but simply the best piece of meat I had this year. Really flavorful ad juicy. I order it rare but I could eat it at a certain point because the meat really was raw (purple). I had them warm it a bit and the gorging continued. There were some sides on the table but I didn't bother with them. Thumbs up on Charlies.
