I finally made it to Amerient not too long ago. I haven’t been there since it was the “Old Telephone Company”, back in the day… I ordered my favorite Chinese go-to, Kung Pao Chicken. Since I was there between 3-5pm I was able to take advantage of early bird pricing. It was only $8.50 and included soup and appetizer (two egg rolls).
The Kung Pao was decent, prepared in the traditional fashion. It was made with a generous amount of chicken that had no discernible byproduct. Spiciness was just right for me. Noticeably missing though was chopped green onions! Not an insignificant omission.
The fried rice was another story (pictured below). It was a small portion, extremely bland, no egg at all, and tasted like it was made two days ago.
The egg rolls and won ton soup were very good. I would probably go back – to satisfy a festering Chinese itch…
Right next to Packards, across the street from La Cocina…
Really good won ton soup
You know what these are…
Chinese chips & salsa
The ambience is clean, comfortable, and spacious. Only somewhat tackily decorated. Yes they serve wine (and beer)!!
