Wanted Wang's, went home empty handed.

I arrived at Wang's on B'way in Somerville at 7 pm on Friday night with my 2 year old son. (His chanting, "Chinese food! Chinese food!" made me think this would work.) We got seated, and I spent 20 minutes watching two women answering the phone for take out orders (PuPu platter's and chicken fried rice for the locals, I'm sure!) and running back and forth to the kitchen. When I was finally asked by one of them if I was ready to order, and I asked for help with the menu on the wall, she disappeared into the kitchen again.

Whoops! Too close to Jacob's bedtime. I scooped him up and went out to the car. I was tee'd off (or should I say steamed) enough that I scurried out with his sippy cup. We were just sitting there for nearly 25 minutes. They were overwhelmed with a bunch of take out orders, but that didn't make me feel any better.

I'll be back, as food so exaulted is probably worth some suffering, but it had better be worth it. It probably won't be......
