Manchu Wok Out. Panda Express are you paying attention???
I always thought the cheap Chinese place in a food court was untouchable. Like a hot dog stand in front of the Museum of Natural History- some places don’t need to be good to make money, they just need to show up. After all, who can resist orange chicken in a food court.
So much for that theory. Manchu Wok, the terrible Chinese food place in the Rock Center Councourse, has closed. I never met a cheap chinese food place I didn’t like… until I ate at Manchu Wok- so I’m not too upset. But you can rest assured there a ton of lazy Chinese food addicts in 30 Rock who are finding it hard to get out of bed these days. I guess they’ll have to walk a few blocks to Hing Won, Yips or Wo Hop/Ho Yip to fill their urge.
In a related note… this weekend I will be stepping up my praying for Panda Express to move into the now vacant space. If anybody else would like to join in, feel free.
