Avoid During Business Hours
Being new to the area, I've been trying a bunch of local places and I have to say this is the worst Chinese restaurant I've been to... ever. (The empty parking lot should have been warning enough.)
I ordered the orange peel beef and some crab rangoon to go. The crab rangoon was your typical Sysco fare -- okay, not great -- but the orange peel beef was astonishingly unappetizing. It was the sort of dish that makes you wonder how a restaurant stays in business.
Upon opening the styrofoam container (not a cute, cardboard to-go box), I was greeted by what looked like pieces of beef jerky swimming in a dark, unnaturally-colored sauce, topped off with orange peels -- not orange zest or minced, diced, chopped, or julienned peels, but what appeared to be the discarded remnants left by someone who decided to eat an orange (no straight lines to indicate a knife or other utensil was used to remove the peel... I only hope the guy in the kitchen sterilized his hands in boiling water before gouging his nails into the rind).
Then, in spite of my better judgment, I tasted it. I took one bite, chewed for a moment, then my body hastily rejected the food into the trash can, along with the rest of it in the container.
Now, this part may or may not be related, but I found myself nauseated and retching sick about twenty-four hours later.
I know this all sounds dramatic, but it is not at all an exaggeration. This was an exceptionally bad experience.
