Headed to King's for first time tonight. I see that the Za Jiang Mein is highly recommended. Any other must tries? Things to avoid? Thanks in advance.

    Had the shrimp and pork won-ton noodle soup a few weeks ago.
    My chinese girlfriend eats like a bird (a sparrow) so, we didn't eat anything else. The won-ton dumplings were quite different than those served across the street at First Chinese BBQ. Instead of the pork and shrimp minced very finely, the texture of the (larger) pork dumpling was more like "hamburger" with a small whole shrimp snuggled inside. But, it was all very good. Especially the broth which had a deeper, more intense flavor than that served at FCBBQ. I'm eager to return and try some other dishes.

      Boiled Peanuts and cold cucumbers are dishes I enjoy. You just can point to what appetizers dishes look interesting or ask them for a try before you buy.

          The shrimp and pork wonton noodle soup (beef shank soup with wontons) mentioned above rates as just about the best soup in Dallas IMO.

        Beef Stew Noodle Soup and a side of cold tofu. Damn good day it will be.

            Wifie had the beef and wonton soup and I went with beef stew with green noodles. We were both really happy. My was the same as hers, without the wontons and house made noodles. It has cellophane mung bean noodles. They were really good, but I kept poking into her bowl to get the house made noodles and I ended up eating one of her wontons. Cold cuke to start. Will definitely be back.

            My favorite is (or used to be) #8 Dry Noodle with Ground Pork Sauce and my SO's fav is #4 Beef Noodle Soup w/ Shrimp Won Ton. However, over the last couple of months, most recently this week, both dishes weren't as good as they used to be (we've been going there since they opened). My noodles were too soft. The beef wasn't tender and was almost inedible. So we probably won't go back.
            Will probably go back for the shaved ice, the best Taiwanese shaved ice in town IMO.
