I've eaten here a few times before and it has been acceptable but tonight, I can't label it as such. I ordered the same thing I've ordered before at other chinese places because it is something I like and I get a craving for it now and then. I know what it is supposed to taste like and what consistency, etc it should have. Tonight, at this restaurant, it had none of that. I ordered Happy Family which has pork, beef, chicken and shrimp, carrots, pea pods, bok choy and baby corn. All is supposed to be swimming in a delectable brown sauce. Tonight, from Lucky Dragon 2, I wasn't so lucky. There was no brown sauce and what there was of some viscous fluid I'm sure they would call "sauce" there was very little off. The bok choy was ancient and the pork had a funny taste to it. I also ordered a side of Chinese doughnuts - fried biscuits coated in sugar. When I got home and opened the container, there was practically no sugar. They are supposed to be lightly coated with sugar all over. It appeared to only have enough sugar in the container to have coated one not ten doughnuts. The only thing that was halfway decent was the rice. I really wanted to feel some sort of loyalty to this little place since it's only one of two Chinese restaurants in the town I live in (the other whose quality I already questioned) but I just can't. Looks like I will be running back to where I came from to eat Chinese the next time I have a hankering for it.
