Eat at Wang’s

Nobody likes Wang’s except me. My lovely bride hates Wang’s. Nobody here is interested in Wang’s. Hiding a promo for Wang’s in a post called Conceptual Dining did nothing. Even my dog, who thinks finding chicken bones in the back alley and choking them down before I can pull them out is hot stuff, probably wouldn’t eat at Wang’s.

Every time I go past Wang’s, there’s two occupied tables and a lot of lonely chickens in the rotisserie. What the hell is wrong with people? At this point I’m just hoping it’s a Korean mob front, so that money-laundering will subsidize the continued production of tasty roast chickens and four kinds of chicken soup.

True story: I tried to organize a meetup there, and most of the Metbloggers forgot to be interested, thus scotching the plan (better scotching than welshing on Korean chicken soup, I guess).

Wang’s only makes five dishes, I’ve only tasted two, and they were really good roast chicken, and really really good chicken soup, and all I want to do is find a few people who will come with me and give me an excuse to try the mysteriously magical version of their chicken soup that costs like eighteen bucks and would feed a small family and comes with five kinds of kimchee and if you want dessert just go have coconut toast at the bubble tea place two doors down.

    I’m still up to it one of these days — just was bad timing (I wasn’t even sure I was going to be in town).

    I experienced the joy of chicken-only Korean restaurants in Edmonton a couple of weeks back at a place accurately-if-not-creatively named “Chicken for Lunch”.

    And I’m definitely game for the $18 chicken soup of many wonders.

    I am in for Wang’s!

    Btw, what happened to the seafood place that used to be in that space? Did they finally turn their backs on the City of Port Moody for snubbing them in that big restaurant deal at Rocky Point?

    Wang’s it is. Date TBA.

    I think the Flying Fish didn’t so much snub Port Moody (something few prosperous businesses are likely to do) as disappear, probably due to unprofitability, into the night.

    I have not seen it reappear in any form.

    Businesses can fail or move or close for many reasons: lack of customers, partnerships dissolving, various issues we could call “landlord relations”, and so forth. I don’t know why the Fish disappeared, but the fact they did doesn’t add much credibility to their very public show of bidding for the Rocky Point deal.
