Cheap Chinese food is an all-American tradition
|PuPu Platters still rock at Wok-N-Roll Express|
The restaurant featured in last week’s print review was Master Wok, the Lee’s Summit outpost of a mini-chain of locally operated Chinese restaurants. The place still serves Chinese-American dishes such as lemon chicken and moo goo gai pan.
Those kind of specialties have become less popular over the years, particularly in contrast to the spicy Hunan and Szechuan fare that was introduced to most American palates after President Richard M. Nixon’s historic trip to China in 1972.
But at a different kind of wok restaurant, Wok-N-Roll Express in Overland Park, those beloved pre-1970s dishes are as popular as ever.
