Chinese in Wilmington?

  • 3

Hi foodies,

I just moved here from Durham - I'm looking for great Chinese. I know of Double Happiness and look forward to trying it. My favorite is Szechuan though, and I was completely horrified by Szechuan 132. Did not see anything remotely reminiscent of Szechuan food there...do they have a separate authentic menu?

Is there another Szechuan restaurant? If not, can you point me toward an Asian grocery that has the ingredients?

I tried Indochine today and it was divine. Have had fun trying the local eateries - more to come! Thanks. I'll really miss Carrboro's Gourmet Kingdom - authentic Szechuan - if you're ever that way, you should stop in.

  1. I am coming to Wilmington for a few days from Chapel Hill. You know how we like our food here! What else is good that you have discovered there.

    1. You need to go to Double Happiness. Great food. The Siagon Market is our best ethnic market on Kerr Ave.

      1. Lived in Wilmington for 3 years and there is no real Szechuan restaurant. The best Chinese (and it's basically take out place with 4 tables) is Fire Bowl on upper Market Street. It is the best there is - I've lived in LA, DC, NYC so know really good Chinese. I'm now living in Raleigh so am looking forward to trying Gourmet Kingdom.

        Have recently tried Taipei101 which was excellent and Super Wok which was very good (both in Cary) if you come this way again. Restaurants much better in Raleigh than Wilmington, but I agree about Indochine - we were practically regulars there.
