It’s been a while since I’ve eaten at Gourmet Kingdom in Carrboro. Their new website lists the same dishes, but no prices. I’ll guess it’s so they can avoid updating the website in the future. When I go there, I feel like there’s a significant level of variance in my degree of satisfaction of the meals. Sometimes they crush it and other times I feel less good about the experience.
Are any of the other Chinese restaurants in Chapel Hill/Carrboro worth visiting? To put things in perspective, I’ve never had General Tso’s chicken and don’t find comfort in Americanized Chinese food. If the restaurant needs to serve that stuff that’s OK, but I want an English version of the menu the server gives to the Chinese patrons. The nice thing about Gourmet Kingdom is that they have quite a following among the local Chinese community.
Tonight, I’m going to try Shanghai Dumpling on Franklin Street. It’s gotten some good reviews on Yelp. They don’t seem to have a website. The kiddos love dumplings and so do I.
