New Fong Kitchen

As many who read the blog know, I believe there are three levels of Chinese food: 1) authentic, 2) take out/sit down, and 3) buffet.  This is my favorite "Level 2" Chinese food.  Level 2 is American style Chinese food, which is at a substantially higher quality than buffet food.  

The lunch special General Tso's is pictured above.  We get it extra spicy/extra crispy, and they do not disappoint.  It has the perfect balance of tangy/sweet to be delicious.  We chose the white rice accompaniment.  Next up is the crab rangoon/cheese wonton.  These are AWESOME.  If you enjoy sweet cream cheese to be at a higher ratio than crab, these are some of the best rangoons around.

This is lunch special sweet and sour chicken (sauce not pictured) with fried rice.  The chicken was crispy on the outside and soft in the middle without being too bready.  Actually, the chicken in general is delicious here.  I've had some American style Chinese food where the chicken tastes less than fresh, but this tastes like fresh, white meat chicken.  

The lunch specials come with the option of egg roll or wonton soup.  We picked the wonton soup, and it was very good.  there was plenty of flavorful broth and a good noodle to broth ratio.  Also, the serving size was quite generous.

The soup came with those little fried wonton cracker things, but you're probably wondering why they're pictured here.  It's because they were really good.  This is rare.  I seem to run into a lot of stale ones, so when I get a good batch I like to brag.

We ordered an egg roll separately, because why not?  It was hot fresh, and delicious.  A big benefit of this place is consistency.  I've never had a bad meal at New Fong.  They get everything cooked perfectly, and it's always actually ready in 10 minutes.  Also, we got all of this food for under $18.  Awesome.  4.5 stars.  So, if you're ever in Greece thinking about Chinese, check out New Fong!
