Latest Lee's Garden news and reviews
JM ate the shrimp and pork special.
Nichole ate the orange beef with hot and sour soup.
We got some egg rolls and crab rangoon.
The bill was $31, or $15.50/person, plus tip.
JM and Nichole both gave Lee's Garden a B (see our grading rubric).
When we visited Lee's Garden, formerly Hong Kong Cafe West, there was a whiteboard advertising a special Chinese menu "coming soon." The new menu may already be what's cooking by now; we found a pretty standard Chinese takeout place with no surprises.
Our customary rangoon had a light, whipped cream cheese filling but their wrappers, and that of the egg roll, were unpleasantly gummy. The hot and sour soup was a generous serving with a peppery broth and spicy-hot tofu pieces.
We opened up the orange beef to find a diced green onion garnish that suddenly made dinner feel 125% classier. The fresh, lightly steamed broccoli helped too. The dish itself was quite sweet and we were left wondering what had warranted the "hot!" asterisk that had accompanied its description on the menu.
That's all we've got on Lee. We don't know exactly what justified a name change, but if you've tried the new menu, holler.
