Moon Wok: Not Out of this World

Veggie fried rice

Getting (good) Chinese takeout in Santa Clarita is more difficult than you’d imagine. We recently re-visited the popular Moon Wok restaurant on Cinema drive; we tried it a few years ago and weren’t the biggest fans. But life’s about second chances, right?

Here’s what was in our order:

  • Garlic sauce chicken: White meat stir-fried w/ onions, red peppers, water chestnuts, bamboo shoots, wood ear mushrooms, celery, & broccoli in spicy garlic brown sauce;
  • Chicken chow fun: Wide rice noodles wok-tossed w/onions & bean sprouts;
  • Veggie fried rice; and
  • White rice.

When we got home, as you can see from the photos, the dishes looked all the same. Disappointingly, they all tasted the same as well—drowned in an indeterminate brown (aka bland) sauce.

Let’s just say that the white rice was the tastiest item in the takeout order and leave it at that.
