Mr. Ho’s Wonton House

I wrote a review of Mr. Ho’s Wonton House (which we affectionately call “Dr. Ho’s”) last year but figured I should add some pictures… so, without further ado…

Okay, I know it’s not “Dr Ho’s” but for some reason, we always call it that. I suppose because it’s the perfect cure for our craving for Chinese food.

This is the kind of place where you’ll either like it or hate it. The food is kind of westernized dishes (similar to Rose Garden) but it is very satisfying when you have a craving for it. We always get the spicy wontons and the green beans when we get take out.

They are really fast in their kitchen! I work nearby and they always have the food ready by the time I get there when I phone in for take-out (within 10-15 minutes). I asked them once about that and they said they had an army in the kitchen (and I don’t doubt it). It’s also nice getting the fortune cookies in the little chinese take-out containers.

Now for some pictures:

Small beef lettuce wrap (sans picture of the lettuce) – I was a little disappointed that there wasn’t that much beef in the dish.  The Singapore style fried rice vermicelli is a big dish and not too spicy.

I really liked the beef brisket in the beef brisket chow mein.  The sliced beef and snow peas was a little boring though.  I think I was hoping for snow pea tips instead of actual snow peas.

The General Chu’s chicken was pretty good but it would have been a lot better if it had more than just chicken in it… some peppers or other veggies would have made it more interesting.  You can’t not order the spicy wontons… mmm!

And, of course, the requisite fortune cookies.

If you’re looking for real Chinese food, you might be disappointed… but if you want some good tasting, Chinese fast-food, this is the place to go.
