Ming Tai discounted tea time from 3:00 PM to 5:00:PM
Today my son and I were up in the area taking care of some other business I remember a post by KK (? I remember tips sometime not who give it) about a discounted prices during "tea" time.
We had two orders of wonton noodles for 3 dollars a bowl
One order each of Salt and Pepper Tofu and Smelt with eggs at 3 dollars a order
One of fried Chicken wings at 2 dollars.
We had a very filling snack or a early dinner.
The only thing the lower price was te fried baby fish on the tofu otherwise it was the same dishes at the normal price setup.
I found the noodles not over cooked and had a little bite in texture.
Lots of other items at about half the normal price
I had a cup of very rich and full body coffer (not the normal weak stuff I fine at most Chinese places) and my son had a iced milk tea. Both were a buck each.
Nice to try, but I was not able to pick up the tea time menu. But from what I remember the rice rolls and congee at least six kinds were two dollars. Nothing over 3 dollars.
No need to give credit. I think Ming Tai has it's strengths, eg, shui gow , but Fat Wong has more variety on its menu. The afternoon menu at Ming Tai is a total bargain. I loved the dried shrimp rice roll so much that I went during lunch to order a full order ...it turns out that the portion was the same for almost twice the price. Also, shui gow is not on the afternoon tea list. I highly recommend the dried shrimp rice roll but DO NOT order any other rice rolls since the fillings aren't good and the skin is thick.
I can't take credit for that bit of news on the afternoon tea discount...because it was Margret who first mentioned it. :-)
Haven't been there in over a year. Time to go back and revisit.
Last visit to Fat Wong's was VERY disappointing, and my folks said the same thing on their visit. The Chiu Chow fishball was hard, not soft/fresh chewy. The Cheung Fun consistency went down. Hope that was a one time flop only!
