FOOD POISONING!!!My fiance and I went to China King yesterday, I got the vegetable lo mein, he got the Mongolian beef, and we shared the "crab" rangoon (there was maybe one crab resembling speck in each cream cheese glob).We usually go to Happy Garden and have never had any problems with them, but we figured we'd try the new place... big mistake. My vegetable lo mein wasn't horrible, but not nearly as tasty as what i'm used to. I've already voiced my opinion on the crab rangoon, and his mongolian beef... where to start... the beef tasted very undercooked, honestly didn't even taste like beef, and had a weird green onion flavor to it. Not at all what we expected having had this dish before at other Chinese restaurants.My very hungry fiance lost his appetite and wasn't able to finish his meal. We went to a movie, then shortly after he began the all night extravaganza with the toilet and the wastebasket, every 15-20 minutes... all night. So all clues lead to food poisoning. We regret giving this place a try, and honestly probably won't go anywhere near Chinese food for a while.Unrelated, he later told me he saw the cashier sneeze in her hands and didn't wash them before bringing us our food, and we, not being germaphobes, are used to uncleanliness in fast food joints, we have good immune systems so we don't usually get too nit picky, but since this place caused him to miss a day of work today, I figured this info wouldn't hurt to share.Overall, as far as appearance, very nice new building, new paint, 2 flat screen TVs, fancy chairs and tables ( for a Chinese restaurant), but if they maybe spent a little more effort on healthy sanitation and proper food storage, I might not be serving electrolytes and probiotics, soup and crackers to my fiance right now.
