A visit to South Sacramento may entail a visit to the Seafood City shopping center. Other than Jollibee, Chow King makes for another popular eating destination. Filipino based, the menu resembles other Chinese restaurants, but Chow King definitely features more Filipino goods. Food is cooked to order, so food trays are absent. Unfamiliar with the food offered, I selected regular Wonton Noodle Soup. Other dishes ordered included the Crunchy Chicken Lauriat, BBQ pork buns, and Shu Mai.
Overall, the food tasted OK, but the Chicken was overcooked, and most food lacked flavor. The Crunchy Chicken Lauriat was a good value considering it came with stir fried noodles, mini egg rolls, and rice. The dipping sauce for the food was very tasty and added flavor to the bland food. The Shu Mai was of low quality and did not offer any real taste. The BBQ pork buns lacked flavor and the meat resembled reconstituted pork jerky, definitely not worth it. The wonton noodle soup was simple and included beef as well. Flavor was still lacking, but the overall dish was good.
I probably won’t make another trip down to Chow King anytime soon. The food lacked flavor and portion size was smaller than desired. If you wanted a good meal in the Seafood City area, you are better off eating Jollibee. Do not eat here.
