The Chinese takeout spot, a local favorite of mine, offers fried rice, lo mein, egg foo young, chow mein, chop suey, seafood, dumplings, crab rangoon, chef’s special meals, as well as chicken, beef, pork, sweet and sour, mei fun and vegetables dishes. Lunch specials, combination meals and family meals also are available.
The restaurant is tucked in the corner of the plaza and was bustling with people in the kitchen as well as customers picking up to-go orders the evening I stopped by.
My usual go-tos for Chinese takeout are sesame chicken, orange chicken and General Tso’s chicken, but I decided to change it up this time.
I started with an order of fried dumplings ($8.25 for seven), which were deliciously savory with a hint of sweetness. The breading was sweet, while the meat inside had a subtle kick to it. The dipping sauce added a nice bit of spice.
The main dish of this trip was a chicken lo mein combo meal, which comes with pork fried rice and a pork egg roll ($10.25). As usual, the egg roll was crispy and flavorful, always a delightful extra. The lo mein noodles were cooked perfectly and coated in a rich sauce, with veggies and cabbage throughout. The chicken was juicy and full of flavor. Paired with the pork fried rice, this was a nice change of pace from my usual.
My husband order an old favorite, the sesame chicken combo meal, which also comes with pork fried rice and a pork egg roll ($10.25). I grabbed a few bites, and it was better than I remembered. Hang Yuen’s chicken always tastes fresh and juicy, unlike some takeout options. With plenty of sauce, this meal was gooey goodness.
