Has anyone ever braved K & A Canton Restaurant in the Cheviot Hills Shopping Center?
Does it compare to Hop Li (which I actively like) or Twin Dragon (if I still lived nearby I would go when the craving for Hot and Sour soup came on urgently). Hu's Szechuan is also nearby - I've only had take out, my understanding is that it is Twin Dragon-esque.
In a word, Americanized food. I do give them props for lasting since the late 1990s, but one visit was enough.
I like Hu's for the lunch combo specials. I only order the twice-cooked pork (w/o tofu), the kung pao chicken (with extra sauce) or the eggplant (if I can share with someone). I like the hot'n'sour soup (with a dash of soy and hot chili oil) and I appreciate the little Chinese chicken salad that makes me think I'm eating healthier. Beware of the other dishes, for example the sweet and sour meats are incredibly bready and insipid.
I did, finally. I started simple, pan fried dumplings and hot and sour soup. Not successful. Totally plausible there is something the cook is really good at. Not these.
