General Tso Chicken
A mobile version of the American Chinese Fast food Classic. This version comes in a Chinese take out box stuffed to the gills with an eggroll and a fortune cookie. When I ordered I was given the options of spicy or mild, and I was offered an upgrade to fried rice. I opted for the classic steamed rice. The eggroll was good and might even have been homemade. The chicken was good and crispy and the broccoli had an unusual but not unpleasant smoky taste for some reason. The sauce was spicy but didn't sear my gut like so many food trucks heavy handed heat these days. And the surprise the fortune cookie had a real fortune!
