Forgive me if this has been posted/discussed before. But we are extremely delighted with Michael and Pings. A variety of choices, always delivered hot and within 20 minutes. Now I am not going to say that it is fantatstic Chinese food, but it is the best in Park Slope. Last night we had 2 soups (egg drop and wonton) They were delicious and freshly made. We followed with samosas and pork dumplings. Excellent. We have also had a various main dishes: all very good. I also like that they know your address by your phone number; cuts down the time in ordering.

    I was meaning to try them out, but they seem so much more expensive than the rest. Especially now that Tofu on 7th has upped their game, I wonder what is so special about M&P to get me to pay the extra $?

        i think it is worth some extra $ for superior Chinese food.

      How does it compare to Tofu on 7th?

        i happen to think michael & ping's is pretty gross. Nothing I've ever ordered from them has been good. In fact, we stopped ordering from them altogether and now just order from Tofu on 7th.

          We used to order from M & P a while back, then decided that we didn't care for their food all that much and stopped.

          However, more recently we tried their scallion pancakes, the steamed pork dumplings and the roast pork bao buns, and we really like all three. So now we are ordering from M & P again, regularly. (One other dish that I like is their fried rice, but my wife disagrees on that one.)

          So, while M & P may not be in the same league as a good Chinese restaurant in Chinatown (any Chinatown), some of their offerings are worth another try. Or at least they are for us...

              Besides this thread being about ordering in, it's not always an option to hop on the bus to Chinatown.

              There are those nights you get home from work, it's cold and rainy, and you don't feel like eating the spaghetti sauce that you made the previous weekend for the third night in a row.

              There are also those nights you just don't feel well and you want some comfort food.

              And some people have limited mobility...

                BrookBoy, I think your comments are right on. And I am glad you gave M and P another chance. Try a pork main dish with Hamilayan red rice next time you order.

                  Will do just that. I'll let you know what I think once I've had the chance to try that dish.

                  Thank you for the suggestion.
