People RAVE about San Tung. "Best wings ever!" "Crack wings" "Hour long wait for the best meal of my life" blah blah blah. You know this is just a set up for disappointment right? I've had some mighty tasty wings in my life, Crisp in Chicago and Pok Pok in Portland. The latter, being my favorite of the two places. But Running Man and Triple F looooove San Tung and they are some heavy hitting foodies. They catered the Twin Tornadoes one year birthday party with food from San Tung. So the wings weren't piping fresh when I tried them, but I believe the flavor was still there and I was unimpressed. Korean Chinese food is usually a cuisine I have difficulty appreciating. It comes off as bad Chinese food, almost Americanized in its overly saccharine sweetness. I'm sure its not meant to come off this way, I'm just not accustomed to its taste.
Dry Black Bean Sauce Noodles
This is actually one of the few dishes at Korean Chinese restaurants that I really like...when its done well. Here it was just ok. You'd imagine that a sauce so black and thick would be loaded with flavor, buuuut its really not, at least not this one. The noodles could have been chewier, more al dente. I really like the version at Dragon in LA.
Dry Sauteed String Beans
The beans were not good that night. Save for that, it would have been your standard fare.
