Rice Bowl Asian Kitchen

If you work in Downtown Detroit like I do, you will happy to know that you can get Asian food delivered for lunch. Rice Bowl offers Thai favorites, Chinese dishes, and whole grain brown rice to eat it with. I attempted to satisfy my craving for General Tso’s Chicken, but was unsuccessful.

General Tso’s Chicken: The sauce was spot on, tangy and spicy, but the fried rice was very plain. Again, where was the egg? The green onions? Then, I bit into what I thought was a piece of breaded chicken breast, but it was a deep fried nugget of batter. Normally, I would welcome a treat like this, but the batter was dry and tasted awful. I’m not sure if this was an accident or intentional, but either way it was unfortunate. I like to share because the serving size is enough for two, but there’s a minimum for all deliveries, so you’re better off getting your own entree. For $9.50 plus a delivery charge, it was not worth it. I do recommend trying Rice Bowl though, maybe just avoid delivery. I ┬áhave had Schezwan Chicken here in the past and it was pretty good, so maybe something that isn’t battered is a better way to go.

I am still on the search for authentic, delicious General Tso’s Chicken. Stay tuned for more write ups as I continue on this hunt.
