Wing Hing, Aberdeen/Matawan

Wing Hing is one of those mostly-take-out, freezing-in-winter, strip mall Chinese restaurants. Nevertheless, they used to do basic Chinese food fine. The problem is they keep jumping on whatever the current bandwagon is. Their latest addition is a Szechuan/Hunan section of the menu, which Mark wanted to try. I warned him…

We got Shrimp with Szechuan Sauce. It was 8 reasonable-sized shrimp, some chunks of green pepper, and a lot of diced onion in what seemed to be a ketchup-based sauce, more sweet than hot.

Fool me once, …

(Oh, in the window they advertise “Fish & Chips”–the picture shows fried fish and crinkle-cut French fries. How very Chinese…)

I suppose they know what they’re doing–they’ve been around for ages–but I wish they would stick to what they do well.
