LETTER- Even with Chang, no taste at Taste
I ate at the Taste of China twice when Peter Chang was there. [March 23 cover story: "The Chang effect: Wooing palates, breaking hearts— and why he left"] It was the two worst meals for myself this year.
The hot and sour soup was mostly broth, and the moo shu chicken was horrible and served to me on a dirty plate. I tried it one time after that, and they served me the dumplings like frozen ones I could have bought at Sam's.
I have eaten at the Flaming Wok probably 10 times this year and have not gotten stuck once. They have the best moo she chicken I have ever eaten; same thing goes for the hot and sour soup.
