Spark your taste buds, feed your head, and walk out with a bounce at this tiny Chinese gem. – In Short
Health-conscious diners are among the many who frequent Wong's charming café, home of the master of Chinese-Tex cuisine. Try south-of-the-border turkey breast, wok-fried with basil and cilantro in wine sauce, or tender fiesta beef with piquant Mexican peppers. There's no skimping on the quality of the lean meats, and ultra fresh vegetables, barely oil-glossed. "Road kill" pork with black bean sauce, crisp snow peas and a splash of gin deserves a nicer name.
Check this place out! – I wanted to add a recent review because I am usually disappointed by the lack of good Chinese food in Houston. Growing up in a household with a rice cooker always cooking and a grandmother who can whip up a stir-fry or roasted pork, you KNOW good Chinese food! So this place does not have Americanized battered meat slathered in a sweet and sour glaze or overpowering sauces, or even a stunning ambience ... what it does have is consistently pleasing food, clever menu items, an inventive variety of dishes to suit any palate, and news clippings in the entry way illustrating that Mr. Wong has been cooking in Houston for a long while. Go to this little gem in Bellaire and have the Walnut Shrimp or the Road Kill Pork ... you will be convinced and hopefully you will go back! We go at least once a week =)
Caveat Emptor – 10/12/02 - Something has gone terribly wrong in Mr. Wong's kitchen. From the outset the dining area could stand for some dimmer lighting and some music please. As for the food, the presentation was awful. Our veggie dumplings came served on top of no more than 8 pieces of pathetic chopped lettuce. Presentation is not his forte (mind you this is coming from a guy who believes that duct tape is one of the greatest inventions of the 20th century). The dumplings were filled with more pathetic lettuce and no flavor. The hellfire shrimp were equally dissappointing. I wouldn't waste my time if I were you.
8 – Lucky find. I'm new to Houston and asked a "native" Houstonian where I could get some good Chinese food. "You like good Chinese? You've got to try Daniel Wong's Kitchen, my family has been going there for years." Great suggestion! Excellent food, good service and fair prices.
