Wing's Kitchen Last Saturday

Taralli | Jan 31, 2008 07:13 AM

Fredid & I met at noon on blustery last Saturday for our 1st try at Wing's Kitchen in Chinatown. I got there first & owner immediately poured two big, much appreciated glasses of hot jasmine tea, which he conscientiously refilled whenever we got to the halfway mark. We didn't have any CH notes with us, so started w/cold hot & sour cabbage. This was a generous plate of sweet vinegar-marinated sliced cabbage dotted w/hot chili sauce. We loved this, it was supremely crunchy and refreshing, & we finished every last morsel over the course of our lunch. We also ordered the steamed crab meat & pork mini buns (8), but, I believe, what we got were 8 steamed pork dumplings - please clue us in, what should the bun wrappers have been like? I couldn't taste any crabmeat, but the pork filling & wrappers were hot, savory & filling - I detected a shot of vinegar in the filling. We also ordered the Tam Tam spicy noodles in soup. This consisted of a mound of spaghetti-like noodles in a large bowl with ground pork, spicy peanut butter and ground peanuts. We were glad we didn't go with our 1st famished instinct to order an entree or 2, as we were full. We're both looking forward to going back to try many other items. I believe I remember Dr. Jimbob mentioning getting a group together to do just this sometime.
