Perfect. I'm often tempted to drive back to Columbia just to have more. It was a big plate full, enough that I had some of it boxed up to go, and there were plenty of the pancakes to spread plum sauce and to stuff with veggies and meat. While it's nice, I prefer to stuff my own use my hands and then chopsticks, then my fork to get every morsel. Here, it's well worth it. I found this restaurant while visiting Columbia thanks to Yelp and the good reviews are genuine. Not a lot of atmosphere but cheap, tasty excellent Chinese food.
Love, love, love this place.
We were visiting a friend who attends the Mizzou and were planning on going out for a (failed) movie night. The problem was that we were attempting to find a place to eat on New Years Day, which if you haven't tried to do it yourself in a college town, is damn near impossible. After dong some extended urban hiking (aha, just kidding; it was only a couple of blocks - I'm just lazy), we came to Jingo's.
Decor: The place is super duper dozy. It looked like 5 four-person booths and a few free standing tables, so it *is* on the small size. The walls are red and decorated with the traditional scrolls, lanterns, etc. They also have a semi open kitchen, which was charming on the night we went because our waitress interacted regularly with her two young children while they watched Spirited Away on a plasma screen tv. (So adorable!)
We had a party of five, so we ended up grabbing a booth and snagging a chair for the head of the table.
Food: I had the shrimp lo mein, which was delicious. We also ha the crab rangoon, which was pretty good too. My boyfriend had gotten the general tso's chicken, which was flavorful and crispy. I was actually pretty jealous of his dish.
Service: Our waitress was pretty nice and responsive, but I was a little irked about the wait. The appetizers we ordered were brought out with our food, which didn't make a whole lot of sense to me, but no big deal. The waiter who brought out of dishes didn't seem to know the difference between them all, which made giving them out a little annoying. These were all minor things though, and totally didn't distract from the meal.
All in all, a great Chinese food place that I would definitely eat at again!
Ordered a while back and really enjoyed the food. Good mix of veggies in with the meats. Crab rangoon appears to have actual crab in it and tastes like it as well. Egg Rolls are great, they have a little curry in them if that's your thing.
Ordered delivery last week, Jingo's Chicken and Curry Chicken. They called and said their main chef hadn't come in so they couldn't make those dishes. We cancelled. Tried again yesterday and same story. Not sure if we'll try again as the more mainstay dishes(lo mein, general tso's) we got were pretty pedestrian compared to what I'd had previously.
