When I got to Glatt Wok Palace, I was told
that dining there on the Sunday before Passover was the worst time to go because of the
crowd, but the advice turned out to be incorrect. The restaurant was completely full, yet
everyone was having a great time.
The staff demonstrated exceptional
hospitality they were polite, courteous and attentive, and seemed to want to make
the customers as comfortable as possible. And the decor of the restaurant elegant
chandeliers and dimmed lighting set the mood for an outstanding dining experience.
I started with an iced tea ($1) while
examining the extensive menu. For an appetizer I selected an order of twelve buffalo
chicken wings ($5.95), and got more than I expected. Usually buffalo wings are almost bite
sized, but these were gigantic and a meal by themselves. Next, I tried the hot and sour
soup ($1.80) which was delicious, a perfect blend of spices and mixed vegetables to make
for a nice treat.
Unable to decide between chicken or beef
for a main course, I tried both. The orange flavored chicken ($12.50) came complete with
broccoli, sautéed with orange peels and hot peppers in a sweet hot sauce. The beef with
mixed vegetables ($10.95) was prepared with snow peas, onions, and broccoli. The beef was
thinly sliced and the whole dish was served on a bed of white rice.
