At Lunch Now: Chinese New Year Lunch at Hing Won
This is probably as good a day as any to go to the readers’ choice for “Best Fast Food Chinese” two years running. How could I not, right? According to commenter Yvo, you’re supposed to eat vegetarian on Chinese New Years Day as some sort of cleanse (???), but I didn’t get the memo before leaving for lunch. I almost always order the same thing at Hing Won (sauteed udon with pork) but today I mixed it up! House Special Lo Mein, with shrimp, chicken, and ground pork (substitute in roast pork, please.) Uh… yeah. Pretty much the exact same dish as the sauteed udon, just with a different kind of noodle. Oh well. I couldn’t help it! (As it was, it took a lot of will power not to do their newish by the lb. buffet… which always looks good, but then kills me when I weigh my lunch.)
Lucky for me, I had my wife along with me- who is always much better at mixing it up. Her lunch (which I ate a third of) is after the jump…
Noodle Soup w/ Shredded pork and winter cabbage. Awesome… and super spicy. A good day for it too… Happy Chinese New Year everybody!
