Wong Gee - Wheaton

Mister Big | Dec 17, 2008 04:32 AM

In Barnaby's old slot is now Wong Gee Asian. I believe it's Hong Kong style.

While prices were reasonable, the food was less than stellar. My companion ordered the Hong Kong noodle soup and it arrived without noodles. The waiter's command of English was shaky, and he at first insisted that the noodle soup was not supposed to have noodles. Asking another staff person got the correct soup. I got the Hong Kong Won Ton soup. Unlike other versions I have had, the won tons contained spinach as well as the usual shrimp. The broth was inferior to Full Kee's one block east.

My friend also got General Tso's tofu, which he pronounced inferior to several other establishments. I got kung pao shrimp, which was pretty good, and a large portion for $10.95.

The menu featured a large selection of authentic dishes, and that may be the focus of the restaurant. I look forward to other reviews that can comment on those dishes. As an aside, the dining room was well decorated, and comfortable.
