Everybody has a favorite part about Ming’s when it comes to the food. Our daughter loves their complimentary sweet rolls that are little fried pastries coated with cinnamon and sugar. I used to love them, but don’t anymore. It has nothing to do with the quality, it’s because I never get any because my daughter hogs them all.
So, while I don’t get any of the pastries, I make sure to order a small bowl of hot and sour soup. Ming’s makes one of the best in town. If I could order a gigantic bowl of this, I would. This soup is the perfect mix of a salty goodness with a bright sour aftertaste. I don’t care how hot it is outside, this is always on order.
For Megan, her favorite dish at Ming’s is the Egg Fu Young. On our most recent visit, she ordered the BBQ option. If you’re unfamiliar with this dish, it’s two omelet-like patties topped with brown gravy and green onions. You get to choose what kind of protein you want. This is the ultimate Chinese comfort food. It’s rich, heavy and big enough for two meals depending on the appetite.
Every time I visit Ming’s, I try my hardest to get a different dish. This time, it was Char Shue Ding which was stir-fried BBQ pork with mixed veggies and topped with almonds, then served with a side of rice (steamed or fried). The pork was tender with a light, sweet glaze. That same glaze was also mixed in with the vegetables. Once I mixed in the rice, it was a winner of a meal, but that’s no surprise when it comes to Ming’s.
The word “gem” is tossed around all the time when it comes to restaurants, but Ming’s truly fits the definition.
