Chifa Restaurant Wang – (Wang Chinese Restaurant)

Recently a Chinese restaurant opened here in Salinas. It is located one block off the malecon almost directly behind Banco Pichincha.

We ordered sweet and sour chicken and sweet and sour pork combos at under $5 per person. They came with two large fried won-tons, a tasty fried rice that had a few small shrimp and a bit of chicken, a nice-sized portion of sweet sauce (I was hoping for more of a sweet and sour) with red and green peppers and onions but my dish was very skimpy on the chicken with only 3 0r 4 small pieces.  The restaurant itself was clean and freshly painted with one table outside, three tables inside and the kitchen in back.  I would go back and try something different from the menu and will post again.

Sorry about the photo – a bit blurry because of the back-lit menu display. They do offer a churrasco dinner on the menu, noodle dishes and several soups but it was just too warm on Saturday evening to try any soup.

It would also be great for takeout because it is located a few short blocks from our apartment and we were told they will be open 7 days a week from 12 noon until midnight.
