Possessing traveled around the earth with many excursions to Asia, I am partial to great Chinese meals. Also, I am really critical of restaurants that do not measure up for me personally. But, when you come throughout any of my reviews, they are constructive-if I never like the institution, I do not get the time to produce about it.
Since we moved to Gilbert, AZ in April 2006, Norm and I have been exploring for an outstanding Chinese cafe in the East Valley. Numerous occasions, we passed Hong Kong Bistro on the corner of N.W. corner of Chandler Heights and Gilbert Street. In early Spring of ’08, we resolved to give it a try out. Our research resulted in an knowledge that was appropriate on the mark. Hong Kong Bistro is a marvelous worth for the high-quality of its foodstuff.
We have returned to the cafe additional times than I can rely. I am open up to making an attempt one thing various each time, but Norm tends to desire the Mo-Shu Pork, even though tasting my entrees.
Hong Kong Bistro’s menu has anything that most Chinese dining places attribute. The unexpected arrives with the Chef Specialties that are more than unique. Amongst our favorites are: Content Family which is a mix of of shrimp, scallops and chicken with greens is a chef’s sauce Double Enjoyment where shrimps and scallops are combined with veggies in a exclusive warm sauce Sizzling Rice Combo is a delight of jumbo shrimp and rooster breast with fresh new Chinese greens sautéed in a easy delectable sauce, served around sizzling rice Scorching Seafood Platter is a combination of scallops, shrimp, lobster tail and crab meat with Chinese vegetables brought out on a warm platter where you can listen to almost everything sizzling. It is topped with a delicate oyster sauce.
Even though not on the specialty checklist, absolutely 1 of my favorites is Walnut Shrimp. These jumbo shrimp attribute a mayonnaise sauce topped with deep fried walnuts and served with broccoli. It is delectable. The Orange Rooster and Mongolian Beef are much more of Norm’s favorites.
For $1, you can include an appetizer, soup, and fried rice to your order. We appreciated the sizzling and bitter, won ton, and egg drop soup, all which were being superb.
Presentation on all the dishes we’ve witnessed served is attractive, with meticulous interest to element. What impressed me enormously was the preparation of anything. Even deep fried foods is lightly battered and flash fried so as to develop a light-weight creation, not a heavy battered oil-soaked dish which is usually located in other places. In addition there are quite a few light entrée options. Even better, Hong Kong Bistro does not use MSG. Its components are refreshing and you can style the variance.
There are lots of far more selections for us to check out on an ongoing basis. It is tough for us to transfer further than some of our favorites, but Michelle Zhen, who owns Hong Kong Bistro with her spouse, keeps encouraging us to attempt distinctive dishes. They motivate their customers to request for one thing not on the menu if a unique dish is preferred.
The environment is enjoyable and at ease, a cut previously mentioned most Chinese dining establishments.
Michelle and her husband procured the Golden Canyon in Mesa in 1999. Its ongoing good results encouraged them to buy Hong Kong Bistro in 2008. We are glad they did and inspire you to consider it. The drive to Phoenix’s S.E. Valley is well value it, and you are going to savor every single bistro bite.
