Kim’s Dragon Asian Food, Philadelphia PA
General Tso’s Chicken
Ramen with Shrimp and Vegetables
Kim’s Dragon Asian Food is one of the most popular food trucks in Drexel’s food truck row, with such a long line! I liked the photos on the menu and everything looked clean and colourful, unlike some of the old, rusty Chinese food trucks.
The General Tso’s Chicken was quite decent. The sweet, sour, and spicy sauce was tasty and had the right texture. The broccoli soaked it up nicely. The chicken had a nice, thin, but crunchy batter, although it got a little soggy after a while. I was also surprised there were mushrooms and cabbage in it, but I liked them.
The Ramen with Shrimp and Vegetables was a nice change to the regular lo mein. It was basically instant noodles ramen but not too overcooked so was still a little ‘toothsome.’ I liked the spicy chili oil that had flavour and not too greasy. The shrimp was tender but a little overdone while the mushrooms were a little underdone. The other vegetables were good, though, especially the baby bok choy.
I can definitely see why this truck is so popular, especially considering how few Chinese food trucks there are around Drexel, unlike around Penn. And you just can go wrong with having school colours and mascot either.
