China House, Swissvale, PA
This is going to be an extremely short review.
I got take-out from China House in Swissvale, PA. I was tired of pizza (not really) and wanted to try some Chinese food. I love General Tso’s and Almond Chicken. I called around 6ish, and my food was ready in 15 minutes.
I got home and opened the Almond Chicken first. There were sparse pieces of un-sauced chicken, a few pieces of broccoli, and some crushed almonds. We were really puzzled when we looked at the dish. “This isn’t almond chicken!” We got a small container of hot viscous liquid, but after tasting it, we couldn’t tell if it was soup or something else.
The General Tso’s looked a little more like it should, and tasted good as well. The pieces of chicken were small, but the sauce was flavorful. The almond chicken was moist-free, and lacking any flavor.
We ordered fried rice, but what we got looked more like starch soaked in chicken stock- no peas, no egg, no fried anything.
We had a few summer rolls that were tasty, but extremely undercooked.
Almond and fortune cookies completed our meal.
The food was really disappointing. That being said, the young man and woman that own and work in the restaurant are extremely kind and accommodating.
