      I live down the street. When I first moved in, my friends decided to surprise me with Chinese food and showed up with a selection of dishes from Wing Wah. It was pretty bad. I have not been back in the three years since then, not even once. I remember it as greasy, but even worse, I remember the rice as being squishy. Not sticky, but squishy. Ick.

        Oh, sorry to hear that....well, another one bites the dust in my book. Do you know anything abt the new pizza place (tomato pies) called Corleone's on Olden where that little jeweler use to be? We need something new in the area!!!

          Dude, I know! I don't think Corleone's is open yet - I'm up and down Olden all the time and I've been keeping my eye on it. I have noticed that Hamilton has a couple of "Trenton-style" pizza places about to open. There's another one pending on 33 in the Acme shopping center, and I could swear I saw a third one somewhere... Can't wait to try them all!

          For Chinese, the trip out to Sun Lok Garden in Dover Plaza in Yardville is always worth it for me. It's not excellent food really, but it is consistent and decidedly not icky. It IS super Americanized though, with the same printed menus for the past 15 years at least. It's the first Chinese place I ever visited (over 25 years ago) as a child, so I may simply be habituated to it:D

            Stopped in Sun Lok Garden two nights ago for take-out. I had a combo platter of shredded pork with garlic sauce, pork fried rice and an egg roll. My wife had the wings with garlic sauce appetizer, which are great by the way, and an order of egg foo young. We split it up and shared everything. I think the only new thing they’ve added in the last 20 years is fried crab ragoon, which I’ve had better elsewhere. All in all, everything was very good if not great and the prices are decent. They don’t have a website, but their menu is in the Verizon Yellow Pages on page 824.

              I went there yrs ago w/ and remember that it was pretty decent. I should retrun. Kenji Fusion I also went to right around when they first opened. Was very good but my fellow lunchies consider it a bit pricey. Corleone's not open yet but am looking forward to it.

            I got a flyer on my doorstep that says this place is now China Garden?? At least that's what it looks like from the map on the menu...

              Well, I'm sure it'll show up on my doorstep soon too:D Or I could just drive by it since it's right up the street....

              No sign of Corleone's opening anytime soon - they still look like there is renovation work going on!

                Menu is typical generic Chinese...but who knows....has to be better than China Star....blek. Corleone's definitely still in progress.

                  The new Chinese-Japanese place across from Brothers Pizza on 33 is pretty decent. I had two very good meals there. Really liked their Szechuan Tofu (or was it Ma Po Tofu?).

                    Is that Kampo Garden?

                      Yeah, I think so. It was good.

                        I'm surprised they're still in business....I never see anyone in there.

                      I found out China Garden has same owners as Wing Wah--they just changed the name and put some neon signs up...not sure if they changed anything else.

              Check out Kenji Fusion on Route 33. Definitely worth the trip! -mJ

                I've been there a couple of times. Very good!
