As the world??s Chinese restaurants descend into health-consciousness, it is a rare treat indeed to be served up grease, salt and MSG by the handful at a lovely little place called Hong Kong Delight. If this place served salads, you??d sooner get dressing in your face than on the side.

Sure, you can ask to hold all the above-mentioned goodies like the downtown places already assume by default, but why in the world would you? The entire point of this place is to enjoy Chinese food the way they did in the 00s and you did in the 80s. Before you gave a flying rodent bottom about living a long time. Gallons of grease. Woks of cheap meat. Oceans of soy sauce. Yum Yum.

You know how you can you tell that a bag contains a real Philly Cheese Steak sandwich just by looking at the grease-ooze? Well, that??s how you tell a real egg roll as well. And these are huge. More burrito than roll, these deep-fried monsters arrive at your door hot enough to melt your cheap CB2 flatware so watch it. The curry-seasoned Singapore Noodles are briefly fried as well giving them a rare crunchy quality but only on the outside. This is how they??re supposed to be done but so few places bother with the last step probably because they don??t want to clean curry off of their frying pans. Hong Kong Delight doesn??t give a damn. Your meal contains remnants of the last 50 they prepared. I say bonus. The egg-drop soup seems to have more eggs dropped than MSG which is also a rare treat. The reason so few places offer egg-drop soup is because it tastes like absolute chicken-manure without a healthy (or not) handful of the additive but this one is perfect. The only complaint of the evening was the Mongolian Beef which had much more sauce than beef. And those it did were the size of bloated Cheerios. Genghis Kahn would not be pleased.

If you know what to expect, Hong Kong Delight will not disappoint. However, if you are one of these pretentious pee-bags who think themselves allergic to the feeling of Umami, gluten, salt, grease, air, etc., then by all means get your take-out somewhere else. Plenty of places that actually pretend to clean the pots between tofu and pork dishes will be happy to charge you more and give you less. Take that and snort it up both nostrils. Only ?? I wonder if then it would be Stereosodium Glutamate.

Love,

Pros: Best gross Chinese in the City

Cons: Keeps you up all night.

.

My 2 favorites are the beef and broccoli and the sweet and sour chicken. I really like there egg rolls too. I would travel across the city to eat there.

This is the only restaurant that I have ever encountered that will not change a menu item to suit their customer. So don't go in expecting to add a vegetable or change a sauce because they absolutely will not do it. Horrible service.

not only is the food sub-par but some of the people behind the registers are incredibly rude and unfriendly- they'll stare you down like a hawk while you're looking at their menu like they're getting angry that you don't already know what you want. And they're QUICK to grab the money from your hands and shoo you away when you're done ordering. And be careful when you open your bag of food. On more than one occasion we've had our entrees stuffed in the bag as if it were styrofoam only to find our food smooshed or combined into each other!!- GROSSS....my advice would be to head a few miles SOUTH on Canal street to goto Chicago's CHINATOWN for some REAL chinese food (minus the RUDE SERVICE!!)

PROS: it's well lit
CONS: the rude personnel- esp. the females!!

This place has about a dozen tables. A bit small, and it's annoying to eat there and people keep coming in and out. It is nicely decorated with artwork and the chairs and tables are modern looking. The food on the other hand can be better. It seems that its never consistent, one day its good the next it isn't. Ofcourse its very cheap, but i've had better tasting chinese food at the same price.
