My pal Ms. Biz told me that the Great Taste restaurant in Chinatown is no longer as good because the head chef moved to its second location in Huntington Hills. Office Dad told me we had to checked it out to see for ourselves. I didn’t want to go. I trust Ms. Biz opinion, as she knows food better than I do. However Office Dad could not be persuaded otherwise. For this post, let’s harken back to an era known for its detective work.
We ordered the Pan Fried Shanghai Pork Dumpings ($7.95) and Spicy Beef Tendon Noodle Soup ($7.99). The dumplings were bad. The filling was dry and flavourless. I wanted to send it back to the kitchen but Office Dad said to leave it.
The beef tendon soup was much better. The soup was a winner, flavourful with a nice heat. The portion was small but the beef was tender and the noodles toothsome. If you have a healthy appetite, you would need another dish to round out the meal.
Service was pleasant and professional. I would return, particularly if I were with people unfamiliar with Chinese cuisine. The service and pleasant space make up for the quibble I mentioned above.
