Most people who aren’t from the area can’t correctly pronounce Shallotte (doesn’t rhyme with Charlotte) but we know Zeng’s has some amazing Chinese food. My top choice is Mu Shu Pork (with steamed wrappers) with hoisin sauce smeared inside. So good I’ve consumed an entire...More

Only ordered soup to go. My wife had wonton soup which she said was very salty. I had hot and sour; not bad, but not much flavor.

Don't be fooled by the familiar face at the register, the original Zeng's owner and cook is no more. They sold it and the quality of food reflects that change. It's not good as it was but it's not that bad. I've had better and...More

My wife, son and I had lunch at Zeng's last week and had a very nice lunch. Being a local, I can tell you it is far and away the best Asian food in our area. That is not, however, saying a lot as the...More
