First Wok Twin Cities: Comfort Food

Alice | Nov 28, 200404:17 PM

I used to go to this place when I lived here 10 years ago, decided to re-check it out yesterday, and was very pleased. It doesn't compare to a place like Mandarin Kitchen in terms of variety and hard-core authenticity, but what it does offer is what I think of as Chinese comfort food, like I grew up on in NYC. One thing it does better than Mandarin is noodles: their lo-mein noodles are softer, and they have cold noodles with sesame sauce, which I have not found elsewhere. In addition, their hot and sour soup was very good, spicy, and served with dry noodles to crumble in, which I love. Their pan-fried dumplings also hit the spot. Paul got the sesame beef, which was advertised as spicy and actually was a bit spicy. I really enjoyed the meal.
It's over in Calhoun Village, right btwn Mpls and St. Louis Park.
