Here in Ft. Wayne, we have a plethora of Asian-inspired eateries. But if you're in the mood for some good sweet-and-sour pork, you have to try out some of our Chinese food places. So, whet your appetite and get your chopsticks ready - here are three of the best in town!
- Hop Sing's Chinese Food
6214 Stellhorn Rd, Fort Wayne, IN 46815
No bias here - it's just the best place for sweet and sour pork and crab Rangoon anywhere in town. This little shop is strictly drive-thru, and the owners really put their hearts into their cooking. The sweet and sour pork and chicken have a good amount of tender-crisp veggies and not too much sauce tossed in with the golden-fried meat. A small cup of rice accompanies each dish. The crab Rangoon is large, tangy and not sweet - perfect. And, if you'd rather have something besides sweet and sour pork, check out the menu, there is a lot to choose from, including kung pao, cashew chicken, almond chicken, and many more entrees. Soups, egg rolls, and wontons are also on the menu.
- Peking Restaurant
6512 E State Blvd, Fort Wayne, IN 46815
Want hot food and plenty of it? Check out the Peking restaurant. This is a place that doesn't skimp on the meat or rice, and they include a lidded container of sauce when you order sweet and sour pork or chicken so you can season to your own taste. Designed like a little café, you walk up to the counter and order from the big light-up board behind the cashier. Orders are recorded on squares of cut cardboard, then transmitted to the kitchen. You can watch and listen as ingredients are poured into hot kettles; the sizzle gets your taste buds working. You can either carry out your order or sit down at one of the tables and enjoy your meal immediately.
- The Double Dragon
117 W Wayne St, Fort Wayne, IN 46802
Right in the middle of downtown Ft. Wayne, the Double Dragon has been doing business for a number of years right from a small storefront. Office workers like to stop by and sit at any one of the tables inside, during lunch break. There is also a delivery car that speedily zooms in and out of the tight parallel parking spaces in front. This is a café counter where you walk up, order, and carry out or eat in. Listen to the clatter of cooking and anticipate the meal that is to be - it's always a busy scene with lively chatter amongst the staff. In the dining area, big windows give you a bright view of the street.
