I have kind of a mixed review for Cheng's Garden. My wife wasn’t feeling great but thought she might like some fried rice. Me – with time to kill – thought I’d google “best fried rice in Minneapolis.” One site mentioned Cheng's Garden, so I...figured we’d give them a try. We had it delivered. First off, you probably think it’s odd to google “best fried rice.” I did it on a lark. I’m pretty much of the opinion that fried rice is fried rice. As I said, my wife wasn’t feeling great, so we got some fried rice. Also, some egg foo young to share. Egg foo young is one of those dishes where I wonder if there ever was something similar in China. It is kind of nostalgic for us. Something our parents would have ordered. I also ordered their “house special” General Tso’s Chicken and an order of egg rolls. There was definitely going to be some leftovers, but nothing wrong with that for Chinese food. Also, we weren’t being very adventurous from a culinary perspective. As it turns out, I’m sticking with my opinion on fried rice. Not a lot of difference from one place to another. The egg rolls were good – they didn’t knock me out, but I wasn’t disappointed. I thought the egg foo young was actually pretty good. What surprised me (in a good way) was the General Tso’s Chicken. I was assuming it would be the typical sweet dish, but they have it on their menu listed as a spicy dish. When you order, you specify mild, medium or spicy. I ordered it spicy, figuring how hot could it be? I was pleasantly surprised with the flavor. It was sweet but they did add some heat. My biggest disappointment was the delivery. We live in a condo, so a good delivery brings it to our unit. They ring us from the lobby, and we buzz them in. I even put this on my online order instructions. I tend to be disappointed when they make me come down the lobby to pick it up. This was at even a lower level. I had to leave the building and go out to his car to pick it up. Keep in mind this is the restaurant’s own delivery, not GrubHub who also seems to deliver for this restaurant. So the mixed part of this review is that the fried rice and egg rolls were okay, egg foo young was good, General Tso’s Chicken was very good, and delivery service was terrible. BTW, the other plus was the price seemed lower than many of the other Chinese spots around town.More
