We had dinner at Wong over the weekend. I wanted to try something new and different. There should be a sign that pops up when I think I should be eating Chinese food even though Wong is categorized as Asian cuisine using local fare. Of course I asked for no garlic and that was not an easy ask. They could not have been nicer about it. They went through everything we ordered on the menu which could not be changed. Ends up they use garlic perfectly. It is actually used as a flavoring not as the main flavor. Yahoo!.
I love the feeling and vibe of the restaurant. The kitchen is open in the back with a bar overlooking it. There are tables scattered around that can be moved into larger tables and smaller tables. Really good lighting too. Great architecture.
This was served along side with rice noodles, a dipping sauce and black sesame shrimp toast. Not what I was expecting. I'd like to see them mix the whole thing together with the sauce and serve it complete to the table.
I like Wong. A new place to go. The drinks were killer. Some of the dishes were really good and others were just okay. There menu changes and I'd consider going back for the duck special they are doing for the month of November. Sounds right up my alley.
