One would think that with all the competition in Chinatown the food would be descent in all of these restaurants especially ones off the main streets, but no, that's not the case. Let me introduce you to Joe's Ginger that is not to be confused with Joe's Shanghai. This filthy nugget of disgust has its front windows lined up with Zagat and Trip Adviser logos making one think that it actually serves good food. Let me be perfectly clear: I HAVE HAD BETTER CHINESE FOOD IN IOWA. Not a single item that we ordered (2 types of spring rolls, steamed dumplings, sesame chicken and vegetable fried rice) tasted remotely close to food fit for human consumption. Everything was stale, bitter, frozen/thawed and overall disgusting. The sesame chicken was more like sesame bread batter and tasted like it was just defrosted. The broccoli that came with it was 100% just thawed and looking limp and wrinkly. The fried rice tasted so awful that I actually had to spit it back out. There are so many really good restaurants in this area, how can this place even exist? Take my word for it people, this is horrific food that does not belong in Chinatown. It doesn't taste exotic Chinese, it just tastes like garbage. Avoid at all cost.
