Location – 2129 S. China Place (in the New Chinatown Mall)
In one word – Variety
Food – Based on a recommendation from a GB reader, I decided to try this place. I had a great time with the cuisine at KK. They had an illustrative menu (definite plus). I could see what I was ordering before doing so, which was essential as I was unfamiliar with about everything expect the sweet and sour chicken. We ended up ordering the white fish fried with a saki sauce, the fried tofu and portobello mushrooms and the orange chicken. All of which were fantastic, particularly the fish with saki sauce (get that one for sure!). My eating partner also ordered the fried intestines for himself. Call me unadventureous, but I didn’t want anything to do with that. However, props to the restaurant for the variety in the menu. Offering everything from tofu to intestines, that’s pretty impressive.
Drink – We stuck with the jasmine tea.
Service – Yeah, we had to request water a couple times, but I’ve had worse service (see my entry on Crust). All in all, it was fine.
Occasion – This place isn’t a fancy joint. Come here if you’re craving authentic Chinese food. Perhaps come with a group of friends.
Dress – Jeans will do you just fine.
Cost – Each entree will run you $6 – $8. We over ordered, you could easily get by with one entree per person.
