When I am craving Chinese food, there is only one restaurant of my choice. Tasty China restaurant is where you can go to taste authentic Chinese food. I have tried many of the excellent entrees here and the one that I choose the most, is their Sweet and Sour Chicken.
The entrée comes with lightly battered chicken tenders fried to a golden brown. The chicken is juicy and moist and there is no grease running down your fingers. Along with the chicken tenders, the entrée also comes with a generous a serving of brown steamed rice. The consistency of the rice is light and fluffy and the rice does not stick together like most steamed rice does. The taste of the rice has a nutty flavor to it, and the rice is not seasoned with any spices at all. The only thing added to the rice is eggs. Each puffy rice grain has it’s own unique shape and texture. With each bite, you get both the rice and egg. The sweet and sour chicken also comes with slices of sweet, juicy pineapples which are sliced into bite size pieces and there are also small chunks of green peppers and red peppers, small thin slices of onions and thinly sliced carrots. The sweet and sour sauce is poured over the top of the entrée. The sweet and sour sauce looks smooth and creamy and it is not thick like most sauces are.
The entrée also comes with a fried cream cheese won ton, and one vegetable egg roll. The fried won ton is light and crispy and the cream cheese inside has a smooth texture to it. The egg roll is fried to perfection, not too brown where it looks burnt. It has the perfect crunch that an egg roll should have. Other egg rolls are too chewy and when you bite into them everything that is inside of it, ends up falling on your lap.
When you bite into these egg rolls, everything that is inside stays there. With every crunch filled bite you taste all the flavors inside at once. The appearance of the veggies inside the egg roll is very appealing. You can see the finely thin diced pieces of carrots, the fresh cabbage, a few bits of parsley and tiny bits of finely diced onion. The vegetables inside the egg roll have an excellent flavor and they taste like they were sautéed in a lightly coated pan of peanut oil.
Tasty China is not a big fancy restaurant, but they do have the best tasting Chinese food in town. They offer casual dining as well as the traditional take out. They serve the usual entrees found in a Chinese Restaraunt which consist of your choice of beef, chicken, pork, shrimp. They also have a vegetarian menu and a kid’s menu. When you walk though the front doors, there are eight tables arranged nicely and are spaced adequately apart so you do not have the feeling that anyone sitting at the next table is breathing down your neck. Each table has four chairs. The napkins and utensils are placed on each table. The table tops are made of glass and on the table in front of each chair, there are placemats which have the Chinese Zodiac on them. There are also several booths to sit at if you want a more to be more relaxed and comfortable. The booths are against the wall to the right as you walk in the door.
