You can't argue with the huge popularity of this place - it's an institution. The good news is that the food portions are VERY generous and pretty darned tasty. It's just not *great* - other Chinese restaurants in the Chinatown area can lay claim to that title.But the heck with semantics - you'll enjoy your eating experience, particularly if you get the very sweet slippery shrimp. If you eat at the restaurant, don't order one entree per person, unless you plan on taking a lot of food home. This is meant to be shared. So experiment, grab a few entrees and everyone have a taste. Fun.Be aware that the line to get in is typically very long, due to the popularity of the place. I prefer to order take-out, where I can enjoy Yang Chow food in my home with my friends. Always a fun treat. Our friends from London insist on us ordering Yang Chow food whenever they come to town!
the deep-fried bean curd is unique--thick, golden, crunchy batter that sticks well on above-averaged-sized pieces of bean curd. i give the bean curd on a good day here 5 starts (there are days where they're good, but not great). the other regular entrees i've been getting over the years are the deep-fried chow mein hong kong-sytle, roast duck, walnut mayonnaise shrimp, and sweet & sour pork. i give these 3.5-4.5 stars.over the many years i've been going to won kok, the food quality has been consistent.NOTE: this is a chinese restaurant that cops, filipinos, and hispanics almost exclusively seem to fancy; i rarely see chinese people here, other than any chinese friends with me and the staff.
Until Dong Il Jang, I was a Korean BBQ naysayer. The stuff I'd had was either super Americanized, or so focused on fatty meat that I had to really psych up my digestive system days in advance. But this place is the real deal. The meats (especially the roast gui) are really fresh and tasty. The sides (banchan), especially the noodles and kimchi that come with the meal, are fresh and flavorful. But for me, it's the dish whose name escapes me -- it's a platter of already pre-stir-fried, bright red-colored meat that is a mix of sweet and spicy, and it's the best. Atmosphere is cozy yet lively, just what it should be for the shared, messy, yummy group experience.
The restaurant is right opposite to Carl's Junior, although the entrance is a little hard to notice especially if you don't read Korean. They have a small menu mainly selling their homemade style ox bone soup. You can choose from beef brisket, flank, intestine, tripe & spleen, tongue or mixed. The soup has been cooked for many hours and its made from raw ingredients. It feels very healthy. You can add salt, spring onion and chili paste if you want to. The soup comes with kim chi, kim chi raddish, and a bowl of steam rice. The soup is very fulfilling especially on a cold winter night.
This is a favourite of me Korean American family. It's a bit on the pricey side but you're getting really excellent cuts of kal-bi (korean bbq). The service is top-notch and they are super friendly. Sides dishes are excellent and the overall experience is great. However, I'm more at home at the down-to-earth hole in the wall places -- which this is not. I'm always recommending ChoSun to folks who want a nice 101 intro to Korean BBQ but are a bit pedestrian with their eating adventures. This place won't scare them.
Great food. We've tried other restaurant in the area but this is the place to go to especially for dim sum. There is always a long line for take out. The place is not very appetizing but once you taste the food, you forget about the surroundings. Different people come here not only Asians. Parking is limited. They take credit card for purchases over $10.00. The restaurant opens early and closes late.
I've never been to Indonesian restaurant before. I didn't know what to expect. Starting with a warm welcome and family like dining setting, I fell in love with this quaint place. The Soto Ayam soup and the Satay combo were so delicious. I loved the tea. It's the place for family and friends getting together to spend quality time and enjoy great food.
Came here on Sunday night and the line was pretty long. I ordered their famous roast duck and it took them about 30 minutes to get it on my my table. I was hoping it'd taste great, but it was so bland. Wasn't the best place to have roast duck. Luckily I ordered some other food. Their three layers pork and chicken soup was great.
Thoroughly enjoyed the experience at Tatsu. The staff were polite and patient. Parking was easy and validated behind the building. The food was prepared fresh, and delivered warm and quickly. Loved the tablets to order from, quickly getting seated, and because I'd paid at the tablet, I could leave straight away afterwards.
Hands-down the best BLT in town. It's not surprising since they call their bacon 'crack bacon'. Seriously - they're not kidding. Great place for breakfast and lunch and I love that they put bowls of dry cereal on the tables while you wait for your food. I can't remember the last time I had Lucky Charms, LOL.
