Curry in a Hurry at BIG WONG
So we sez to our ‘cuz Troy Polee, “‘Cuz, let’s grab a quick bite with The Food Gal®.”
“I’ve got less than an hour,” he responds. “Where’s good, close, cheap, good, healthy, fast, clean, friendly, new and memorable?” (TP can be difficult to please on occasion.)
“Easy, peezy,” said ELV. “We gotta go back to Big Wong!”
“What’s a big wong?” came his understandably suspicious reply.
“Only the coolest, freshest, fastest, newest noodle shop on Spring Mountain Road,” we said. “Nothing is over 5 bucks, the stocks are deeply flavored, the shrimp wontons properly fried in fresh oil, the noodle soups, maybe not as finely tuned as Monta next door, but prepared in classic rough-hewn, Chinese fashion that is rib-sticking good.”
So we went, we curried and we conquered. And everything was just as fun and fresh as it was for our first foray. Just as good as the chicken and beef curries was the sauteed bok choy, and fiery chicken wings that may soon be featured in an “Eat This Now” post, as soon we get a tastier snap of them.
Our meal came for three came to $36 and they threw in a rib steak for free (and it was a pretty darn good rib steak).
Why did they throw in a free steak? Because they’d read Eating Las Vegas’ first posting on their noodle shop…and in a show of appreciation, had even copied it and framed it on the wall. (A first that we know of, but quite charming and decorative, if we may say so.)
