Cheap Eats 2018: China Wok

About China Wok

Focus on the menu under the glass tabletop and the handwritten signs on the wall—that’s where you’ll find Peking duck, crunchy “kingdom” pork chops, and Hong Kong shrimp blitzed with green pep-per. We like to kick things off with a round of pork dumplings wrapped in house-made dough. Also good: Fish with chive flower, lotus root, and black-bean sauce; Kung Pao chicken; mapotofu; tofu eggplant.
