Yummy Yummy Long Beach

I thank the management for putting up a vegetarian meat section on the menu and to me it's always better to have it than to not have it but the food last night was just your standard chinese fare.

The hot and sour soup was just ok and the vegetarian spring roll nothing to write home about being overly wrapped with thin dough, just over the line of being a tad too cooked and with your standard commercial filling. How hard are these things to make from scratch?

My brown rice was more crunchy than I undercooked.

I had one of my rare cravings for Sweet and Sour and ordered the pork. I knew it was coming but the sauce was middle of the road and although I brought it upon myself it was too sweet for my palate. I know, it's like saying the chocolate syrup is too sweet. Non the less, it was just your standard chinese, can get it anywhere sauce.

The pork I found to be non descript and a bit on the chewy side even bordering on tough.

Still, at the end of the day it wasn't an animal, satiated my hunger and allowed me not to sit with a bowl of steamed vegetables, although my waistline certainly could use that, and I did have a good time with my friends in a restaurant.

Does anyone know any other restaurants in the Long Beach, Island Park, Oceanside area that offer a vegetarian option?
