I've been taking out food from Cathay for years (It's take out only). I've
heard that it's been around for 50 or 60 years...and there's a good
reason for that...it's much better than you'd expect from its down-scale
This is a classic throw-back Cantonese joint with excellent Chow Mein,
Chicken Almond Ding, Egg Foo Yung (order it "well done")...all the
good stuff. Their Shrimp with Lobster Sauce is not to be missed!!!
Look here...they have the best "classic" fried egg rolls in town. They're
the old style, seriously deep fried, so you have to be able to take a bit
of oil, but they're tremendous. Also, their cream cheese won tons are
savory. They're light, crispy and not over-laden with cream cheese.
And if you spend over $18 (or $16...I can't remember), they give you a
free order of them.
Some of the dishes are a bit oily...you just have to hunt and peck for
the good ones. But Cathay is worth the trip.
