Sometimes Two Wong’s CAN Make it Correct
I have to admit, I wasn’t anticipating so much as soon as we walked in. The restaurant was extraordinarily useful. Nonetheless, that was a suggestion primarily based totally on an opinion dated two years prior to now. PRIOR to a change of possession.
four of the Mee’s present. Sadly V. Stoogas could not be a part of us this night time, nevertheless we watch for consuming with him as soon as extra shortly.
Wong’s Noodle House is positioned at, merely north of the railroad tracks at:
98 Mineola Blvd.
Mineola, NY 11501
As soon as we walked in, there was only one totally different desk occupied. It appears it’s principally a take out restaurant. And they also do most of their enterprise all through lunch hours due to the proximity of Winthrop Hospital just a few blocks away.
No sooner did we stroll in, when the other desk left. I’m constructive it was solely a coincidence. Most the meal we ate throughout the “solitude” of our private camaraderie and good spirits. The spirits have been accentuated by some fantastic BYOB Pinot Grigot (always scores bonus Jew Attraction components). They did put it on ice for us. Correctly achieved!
We left it to our waiter to serve us an real Chinese language language meal, with the one caveat that we wanted spare ribs as appetizers.
That’s what we have now been served:
- Spare Ribs
- Basil Rooster
- Crispy Beef
- Triple Crown
- Shredded Pork w/Scallions
- Singapore Vogue Mei Satisfying Noodles
The spare ribs have been out of this world. My non-public favorite from the entire consuming locations we have now eaten at! The glaze was good. Good combination of sweet and BBQ’ie (I like making up my very personal phrases when precise phrases merely don’t seize the true essence of what I’m attempting to clarify).
The entree elements have been barely on the small side, and after we totally devoured all four we have now been nonetheless left wanting for further (always sign!). So, we requested ordered the Singapore Vogue Mei Satisfying Noodles (the one dish other than the spare ribs that we personally requested). We requested it to be barely spicy. And, it was higher than barely spicy. The other dishes have been on the tasteless, nevertheless tasty side. Significantly the Triple Crown. The shrimp throughout the Triple Crown offering was totally tasteless. The scallops had a pleasing kick and have been the perfect of that offering.
My favorite dish was the crispy beef. Good and crispy like, terribly tasty (akin to the spare ribs), however not dry the least bit. A home run!
The basil rooster was forgettable. The shredded pork very good. Though a small serving.
Dinner was completed with a juicy orange, and naturally the offering of the fortune cookies with our take a look at (reasonably priced. Additional Jew Attraction Elements).
Proper right here have been our fortunes:
“Write your life’s events in a journal.” (Type of like our weblog, eh?)
“Concern is curiosity paid on a debt you possibly can not owe” (Very profound!)
“No one has a satisfactory memory to make a worthwhile liar”
“Each half is possible. Merely not attainable” (What a friggin’ downer!)
