Team Mago recently went shopping in the NW district and stopped by one of our very favorite Chinese restaurants in the city, Kung Pow! on NW 21st.

Hot and sour soup

Once we were seated, the staff quickly came out with a nice little bowl of hot and sour soup that was perfectly spiced. When the owner came by a bit later and asked if we had already had our soup, I’ll have to admit that I briefly thought about lying in order to get another bowl.

Soup dumpling

Next we ordered one of our favorite dishes at Kung Pow!, their version of soup dumplings. Yes indeed these were especially good.

Spicy stir fried Szechuan eggplant

For our mains we shared the spicy stir fried Szechuan eggplant and kung pow chicken. Both were just fine.

When we were leaving, though, Morgan said that he would recommend folks come for dinner and not lunch. The dinner menu is more extensive.
