Chinese Food Roundup

It’s not that I don’t appreciate Chinese food, but–actually that is kind of the case. However, I have been eating out almost every day for the last two weeks, and sometimes I just need the cheap, veg-friendly cooking of my motherland. Enjoy this 3-in-1 post of the good, the bad and the ugly. After all, there are 3 Chinese people in the world for every 1 who is not.

China Village

Went today for lunch with lucky M, who lives across the street from this highly rated Sichuan restaurant. (My grandma’s from Sichuan and I love how spicy their food is.) My parents’ foodie friends have taken me here before, so there was no question that it’d be authentic and fresh. We used to order dry-fried beans all the time when I was a kid, so I got the lunch special (7), in which they graciously substituted tofu for prawns. Came with the usual eggroll/salad/hot and sour soup.

Taiwan Restaurant

Ate here with S when she was hankering for homecooking. True to name, they make great Taiwanese food and snacks, but with such an extensive menu, they’re bound to miss the mark on some dishes. Highlights included the soft tofu, and cheap as fudge meat bowl. Though the onion pancakes weren’t what we expected at all.

Vegi Food

Maybe they make good mock meat, but that stuff scares me a little so we got vegetable and tofu dishes. Chinese Buddhists absolutely make the best veg food, but this is not the place to go. Everything about the look and smell of the place screams hepatitis b. The food was completely bland and the tofu was predictably stale since no one eats here. The worst place I’ve tried in the Gourmet Ghetto so far.
