I was craving Chinese food last week, big time! After being told to try PM numerous time, I finally cave in. To my surprise, it was pretty effin' good! The main reason I was not really attracted to this restaurant is because of it's location. I've been living on and off in the same block for 8+ years now and the amount of restaurant I've seen open up just to close down a few months later is pretty ridiculous. So to get a good idea of their food, we ordered 3 plates of General Tao tofu, salt and spice shrimp and beef and broccoli stir fry. All had decent portions, meaning 1 plate is enough for 1 person.
The tofu was decent. Pretty good sauce but they could've made it a little bit crispier. The beef & broccoli was not that great. Beef was boiled (urgh) and tasteless, the sauce was ok at best but at least the veggies were really crispy, which I'm always down with.
The salt and spicy shrimp is were it gets really good though. To be honest, I think it beats any other shrimp I had in Chinese establishments. Lightly battered shrimp with a salt and hot peppers mix, served on pan fried veggies. These were so good, I could've had another plate! These alone are worth the trip there. So next time, I think I'll go for the shrimp and veggie stir-fry. A straight up winner combo.
So if you're in the area, I suggest you try it. $34 for the all that food including steamed rice, green tea and sodas is pretty good. Go for the shrimp, you won't regret it!
