Salam/hey guys! So you remember that earlier post about me hanging out with YouTube's Sameer's Eats? Well it included a dinner trip to China King in Sugar Land. Believe it or not, this is the first time I am actually reviewing a restaurant in Sugar Land. The reason I usually don't come here is because this place is extremely far from both UH and my house in Cypress. I had gone with him to other restaurants and got him to eat the most famous dishes of those restaurants. He had also promoted the Halal Food Festival that will be occurring on December 14 at the Masjid Maryam baseball field. The main reason for coming here was to have dinner with the people that signed up as volunteers for the event (I will also be volunteering). The main goals were to get to know each other and tell us what the volunteers will be doing during the event. So after visiting the last restaurant, we drove straight here.
Let The Experience Begin
China King is located just after the intersection of Highway 6 and Williams Trace Boulevard. There was a really nice artwork of horses galloping in the forest with Chinese writing on it. In front was the counter, where the payments and the pick up orders are handled. While waiting for the other people to arrive, Sameer and I looked at the menu and saw what was interesting to see. As soon as the other signed-up volunteers arrived, we were ready to order.
We ordered LOTS of food! There were a total of 8 people on the table! For appetizers, we ordered steamed beef dumplings, spicy chicken wings, egg drop soup, and hot and sour food. For entrees, we ordered Szechwan Beef, General Tso's Chicken, fried rice, and regular steamed rice. To drink, we had a combination of Sprite, Diet Coke, and Sunkist. I did not pay for anything, but normally you are looking at between $15 and $20. The waiting time was great. The soups and the free rice crackers came in 3 minute and 56 seconds. Within 2 minutes later, the dumplings and the chicken wings came. Finally, 8 minutes later, all the entrees came.
Judging by what they offer, I have actually decided what to order the next time I go there. Hint: It's a meat, but rarely halal. Otherwise, it's a lot like your typical Chinese restaurant. Many of the items here are also available at the other Chinese restaurants all over the world. Be careful as the non-lunch special items do not come with rice, as it is the case for many Chinese restaurants.
