Hong Kong House in Knoxville
Found the great reviews & recommendations for Hong Kong House from Chowhounds. We were there last weekend for a Lady Vols game. And WOW - the food is truly excellent. Thanks for the lead. We ordered way more food than we could eat. We couldn't narrow it down any further and still are disappointed that we didn't get to try everything we wanted. Next time we need a group so we can order bunches.
We had the fish cilantro spring rolls, the scallion pancakes, the wonton in red oil, and the crispy shrimp - along with a couple Tsing Taos. I would order every one of these again. The wonton in red oil really stands out, also the crispy shrimp. We like some heat, but man, the crispy shrimp was really hot, held us back from eating more. Next time we will amend the heat level. You can order mild, medium or hot.
I am thinking this is our 2nd favorite ever Chinese restaurant. 1st choice is King Fung Garden in Boston. But then again, Hong Kong may edge out King Fung's.
