Our usual Chinese place is closed on Tuesdays, so we decided to give the new owners of this Hon's one last chance, and true to form they totally disappointed.
The food was barely edible. I mean, it was not good. The chicken balls were mystery meat specials. I think they were pork. My wife thought maybe old chicken tidbits, pressed scraps or something. The batter was better than the meat. The sauce for them was thin, vinegary, and had a nasty oily sheen.
The spring rolls were mostly wrapper, and were freezer burned. Unreal! The potstickers were wafer thin and almost transparent. A far cry from the plump dumplings that used to be served.
Shrimp fried rice was acceptable and that's the kindest thing I can say about it. It tasted like white rice with chicken oxo cube broth and frozen vegetables stirred in. The shrimps were small and sparse. It was like a little treasure hunt game to find the seafood.
The only thing that was remotely tasty was the curried beef brisket.
Service gets a three because it was ready very quickly and they were pleasant on the phone. Saw the reason for the quick service when we rolled in to pick up; the place was almost empty. At 6pm there were only three or four tables of people. This restaurant used to be packed with a line out the door every night at this time.
Don't think we'll be going back.
