Phoenix Palace – The Need For Chinese

PhoenixPalace1

Late night food and very hungry, the only thing that could satisfy my hunger while in London was going to the Phoenix Palace. I go there and the place is packed but there is always space, and still the people from years ago remember me and gave me a nice spot, they know I like to order a good amount of food even if it was for one person, and I thought in London I usually walk around enough to justify burning off this food.

I wasn’t going mess around with the food or try something new, I was hungry and I wanted to go to a late night movie, so my options were clear. And I knew exactly what I wanted.

  • Vegetable Spring Roll
  • Prawn On Toast
  • Hot & Sour Soup
  • Vegetable Crispy Noodles
  • Half Peking Duck

That was a good amount of food and I love that one item keeps coming right after the other, people can complain about Chinese food but when its good its really good. Honestly I haven’t found any Chinese place better then in London and there are quite a few good ones there. After the meal I was hoping not to pass out during the movie but luckily enough it was an action packed movie so I was wide awake during the whole thing, and even then I had some sweet popcorn.

P.F. Changs

This was the second time I go to PF Changs and I was planning to order a few dishes I had in mind. Last time I didn’t really have a chance since it was a quick bite. To be honest I wasn’t a big fan of PF Changs from the states, its more like Americanized Chinese Food and in the states you can find some really good Chinese restaurants. But it was a change and worth trying out, I walked it to get a table since it’s first come first serve basis. I keep hearing mixed opinions about the place, either people really like it or really don’t like it, so I curious to give it a full try.

I was there a bit early so I went through the menu asking questions and deciding what I wanted right off the bat while waiting for everyone to arrive. Didn’t take too long and so we ordered the Chicken Lettuce Wrap, Dynamite Shrimp, Spring Rolls, Calamari for starters and Lo Mein, VIP Duck, Monogolian Beef, and Sweet and Sour Chicken for main course. It was a wide selection of items, I was impressed with the appetizers so I had high expectations for the main course but that turned out to be a little to high. Most of everything was a little on the bland side, it felt like something was missing. Overall the place is nice, the service is good, but the food isn’t the best, its ok. The appetizers were good but the main course was lacking, the only real good dish was the Mongolian Beef, the rest of it wasn’t that great. I wouldn’t probably plan for a night to eat there, but if I’m in the mall in the first place I wouldn’t mind eating there.

Wok Master

This diet thing has pretty much limited the choice of food that I can choose from except Saturday night since I have made some progress and the doctor gave me a day off, so I decided to order Chinese from Wok Master for myself and some of the guys.

I went on a slight rampage of choices since I was starving and looking forward to it for sometime now.

Order List:

  • Chicken Spring Roll (Great)
  • Shrimp Toast (very Good)
  • Chicken Pieces
  • Hot and Sour Soup
  • Mixed Fried Rice (Good)
  • Mixed Chow Mien (Fantastic)
  • Sweet and Sour Chicken (Fantastic)
  • Chicken in Lemon Sauce (Great)
  • Mongolian Beef (Spicy, made some cry)
  • Sweet and Sour Shrimp (Great)
  • Prawn in Garlic Hot Sauce (Spicy, cleared your head)

The service was very good, pricing for amount of food was pretty good as well. We were four very hungry guys with bottomless pits who barely were able to finish the whole order. Everyone liked a certain dish and it suited a lot of tastes, its located in old Salmiya but you are better off calling them to figure out the directions, and you can also order through 6alabat.com. I have officially satisfied my urge for Chinese food for the past three weeks.
