Ask for Eunice — that's my advice and I'm sticking to it. True, Eunice doesn't sound like a name that would be attached to a Sino-seafood savant, but take it from me, she is a Chinese firecracker, that one. The diminutive waitress is nothing if not opinionated, and she will have you heading right for the pull-out center of Wah Kee's otherwise altogether ordinary menu — straight to the spicy jellyfish or deep fried pig's intestine, for example. Yum. In fact, we were already there, zeroing in on the weird, exotic, unusual — as usual. Our first waiter gave up in the face of too many questions, and Eunice was called in as backup artillery; immediately she became our new best friend. Turns out, as is often the case, that many of the menu insert's more offbeat items are only occasionally available due to lack of enthusiasm on the part of the eating public. What's the matter, y'all — spicy pig's belly doesn't get the gastric juices flowing? Spicy beef tripe turned out to be the only challenging item left in the appetizer arena, so of course we leaped right on it. Yum again.;- Ron Bechtol
Korean and Chinese food come together under one roof.
Wang's Garden, which presents an “authentic Chinese” face to the world, is nevertheless a kind of paradox. The menu is printed in Chinese, English, and Korean (the take-out version even omits the Chinese), and many dishes seem to suggest a subtle influence of Korean cuisine. You can (and should), for example, ask for kim chee, the Korean pickled cabbage specialty, to add into your otherwise Chinese-sounding noodles with chop suey and soup. As it turns out, the restaurant has ties, either real or in spirit, to similar establishments in China that cater to a Korean clientele. You can tell which dishes are especially favored there by checking out the Korean script on the right hand side of each page: Where there's a blank, the dish doesn't make the Korean cut. The decor at Wang's Garden gets its own chile accent in the form of red columns that play against walls. Scrolls, a few screens, and a lot of plastic plants and posies constitute the rest of the decor — not exactly the expected framework for a cuisine that turns out to be both lusty and sophisticated. But that's paradox for you — and paradox is, after all, one of the philosophical tenets of Chinese food.;- Ron Bechtol
Wasabi may be willing but the fish is weak; even the better cuts feel too expensive for what you get. Seared scallops and some maki rolls are saving graces, as is the Sho Chiko Bai Nigori sake. -- Ron Bechtol, 01/08
