We started the meal with some egg-free Egg Rolls ($5).
The egg rolls were perfectly crispy and just a little oily. They had such a lovely, salty flavor and the vegetables inside were cooked very well.
Next, we had the beloved Hot and Sour Soup ($6.55).
Next, we had the Vegetable Chow Mein ($8).
This was actually more like lo mein, than chow mein, thus the name was quite deceiving. Nevertheless, this was fantastic. I've never really liked noodle dishes, as they have a tendency to be overly greasy, but this dish was very light on the oil. The noodles were very soft and slurpy and coated in a scrumptious soy sauce. The stir-fried vegetables added a slight crunchiness.
Next, we had the vegan Mongolian Beef ($11).
Lastly, we had the vegan Orange Chicken ($11), which did not look like orange chicken at all.
This dish was superb and one of my favorites of the night. The faux meat had a similar texture to the beef, but was a little softer in the center. The vegetables were soft and slightly crunchy. A scrumptious sauce delicately coated the dish, providing a tangy flavor with a subtle sweetness.
Overall, the meal was fantastic, as usual. This place does not disappoint. I am thankful that this place exists, as I cannot tolerate most Chinese restaurants, since the food is usually way too greasy for my sensitive stomach. I always leave Golden China feeling satisfied, yet not ill. With the discount, the meal came out to less than $10 a person (there were three of us all together). I cannot wait to return again soon.
