No 1 china was nothing special. As we all know, there are several factors which weigh in on how our experience with a delivery was. I'll address each one of mine below: Delivery Time: faster than I expected and the driver was polite. Great! Food Temperature: The food was still lukewarm, not hot. But its 7pm on a Friday. They're busy, I get that. No harm done. The Appetizer, Crab Rangoon: Standard fried dough around cream cheese. Not bad for a $4 appetizer. Came with a sweet and sour sauce that was about par for most carry out places. The Entrée, Orange Chicken: This is where I was most disappointed. I tend to judge Chinese takeout by the quality of their orange chicken. It's my favorite dish and I've ordered it from dozens of places in Maryland. In my experience there's three important things in an orange chicken dish. 1. the chicken. 2. the sauce 3. the fried batter How did theirs hold up? I'll tell you all about it. The Chicken: to their credit, was all white meat chicken. This is the best choice for orange chicken since it tends to be leaner, giving the dish a welcome contrast to all the wet textures. Point for No 1 China. The Sauce: nigh flavorless. Little more than a watery corn syrup sauce. It wasn't spicy in any sense of the word despite the cute little chili pepper icon next to it on their online menu. It had no orange flavor and even failed to be sweet at all. Bland mush sauce. Mmmm mmm! that's what everyone hopes for when they order right? ....bleh. The Batter: speaking of bland mush, the batter was just that. No flavor. Not crispy at all (and in a soft meat dish covered in viscous sauce, the crispy batter is very important!) ugh. Now lucky for me I can fix this. I took it home, tossed it in a wok with fresh orange zest, sake, and red pepper flakes. This brought it soundly back into the realm of edible. If you don't mind ordering a fixer upper dish, their service, speed, and prices were good. I probably won't revisit them, sadly.
The food is hot and fresh.
