Yue Kee Mobile Kitchen, Philadelphia PA
General Tso’s Chicken
Shrimp Egg Foo Young
This time, I went with the General Tso’s Chicken. It was not as the vegetarian chicken one I had a few month’s ago. The chicken came in large, well-fried pieces that were slathered with the General Tso’s sauce. It was slightly salty, though, and not sweet enough. They also ran out of fried rice and the sauce was not enough to go with the entire portion of white rice. It came with broccoli only and was not very spicy. However, I did like that they made the broccoli with the chicken and sauce in the wok so all of it was piping hot. It was still a good dish, just not as good as the one from Kim’s.
The Shrimp Egg Foo Young was decent. The egg omelet had onions and lots of tender shrimp mixed into it. It was slightly burnt on the edges but the smoky taste was not unwelcoming. The brown gravy sauce was ladled over the egg so it was hot but not made together with the sauce. It would have been better had the egg omelet been fluffier and the sauce a little less generic. At least the shrimp were great.
I am running out of options at Yue Kee so it is time to move on to some of the more generic dishes. However, if those are good, then I am still set for another semester.
