I decided to try Max Orient at Kenwood Mall’s food court, because, why the hell not? I had never eaten at a Max Orient before, but all of the usual suspects where there. I went through the line rather quickly, the service wasn’t bad or a hassle. The food? I enjoyed. First off, I ate my chicken and mushrooms entrée; popular at most Asian mall eateries. Not bad… not good. Next, I tackled their specialty, barbeque chicken. It was rather tasty, similar to famed bourbon chicken, yet unique. It was very good entrée choice. I opted for the noodles over the rice; which in retrospect was a poor decision, the noodles themselves were lukewarm and packed with too many vegetables. I ordered two crab wontons for $.99, which was a fabulous move on my behalf. They were delicious. Lastly, I had a Cherry Coke that was borderline standard. Overall, for just a lunch, this was a good meal. I was satisfied with the quality of the food, and enjoyed eating.
