Home sweet home

My family has been going here for almost 40 years. my dad and uncle ate here when they were 14! i have been loving tai tung all my life and always look forward to the family outing every time. the waitstaff area all on first name basis with my family. my favorites are chinese style squid and chinese style crab (aka exploding crab (by my family at least)) and i love the cabbage soup, add a dash of soy sauce and it's perfect!

comfort food

My family has been going here for over 35 years, and it is the most consistantly good and greasy comfort food i've found. the pork fried rice, the chow mein (soft noodle), ginger beef, almond chicken, bbq pork, the delicate soup that they serve as an appetizer, and the gigantic potstickers...now i'm drooling. it's had the same waitstaff and decor my whole life and i love it. we've celebrated birthdays, graduations, and engagements there. i know, i know, i'm proabably biased, but it really is good!

Stick to the specials

My co-worker wanted ja jang mein. This is a dish that one normally associates with Korean food (noodles with black bean sauce). Uh oh, I thought. Still, he carried on about Korean Chinese food and I didn't want to rain on his parade. What he got was a dish of various meats and noodles in a pink sauce. A hot pink, practically bordering on red sauce. Hmmm. The rest of us stuck with Tai Tung specialties, mostly the no-nonsense or Americanized dishes like Deep Fried Shrimp, Chinese Greens with Beef, Pineapple Chicken, or Beef Chow Fun. The Chow Fun retained the char of the wok and was spot on- not too dry, not too wet. The Sweet and Sour Shrimp was unlike any I've ever had before. The shrimp were breaded and perfectly fried. The sauce wasn't the typical, cloying red sweet sauce you find elsewhere. It was more of a golden yellow. I think that they found a different application for all that red food coloring.
