Hing Won’s Off the Menu Special is For Those Who Think 2 Meats Isn’t Enough
For any long time Midtown Lunch reader, you probably know that Hing Won (48th btw. 5+6th) is one of our favorite cheap Chinese places (maybe even THE favorite?) You may also know that the roast pig over rice is probably the best pork dish in Midtown. And if you’re like me and can never decide between pig or pork you can always get their “Any Two Roast Meats Over Rice” for about 20cents more. But what do you do when you’re craving for more than two types of meat?
Easy! Order three types of meat (which is not listed on the menu) for $8. I got roast pig, roast pork and roast chicken over rice. Yeah a little bit meat overload but good thing the dish came with some sauteed cabbage with dried shrimp and clear noodles. After taking a bite of the roast pig I can see why Zach would love this. Perfectly roasted with the skin still crispy (I have tried many places where the skin has gone completely stale and chewy). The roast pork and chicken were good as well, not dry at all. The plus side to getting the chicken was that it came with a scoop of the ginger scallion oil. Went great with the roast pig. Though the down side to getting three types of meat was that you get less of each. But sometimes I do prefer a little more variety and for $8 this rice dish really filled me up.
