more interesting and satisfying than a Big Mac combo for about the same cost.
I first dined at Great Wall with "D" after church one Sunday. He's a native Hong Konger so I trusted his judgment when he chose Great Wall from amongst the rest of the bargain eats in Chinatown Square.
What I ate:
I ordered my meal from the "Rice Dishes King" list in Great Wall's takeout menu. All of these menu items are priced at 5.95 USD!
a. Daily Soup. I really appreciate a resourceful kitchen that would use scraps and extras to make soup, which is what I think Great Wall did here. There were beef bones with bits of meat on them, chestnut, and mirepoix. Healthful earthy flavor.
b. BBQ Pork & Soya Chicken on Rice. It wasn't the best Chinese-style BBQ pork, but it was tasty enough. The soya chicken was actually pretty good. The rest of the meal - cabbage and rice - was good filler.
Tea is, of course, complimentary. Soup, entrée, and drink for six bucks? There ya go!
Even if you're flush with greenbacks, you might want to drop by Great Wall Restaurant for a quick and cheap meal.
The Bill: I don't remember exactly, but I'm sure my buddy and I didn't pay more than 15 USD.
My Rating: No star out of four stars (satisfactory). Open every day, 9 AM to 10 PM. MC, Visa, and Discover accepted.
The Last Word ... Woo!Food will be returning soon to Southern California. Be on the lookout for new (and hopefully, exciting) posts from my OG stomping grounds.
