Chop Stix/ Rosedale, MD
I went to this restaurant because I was craving for some dinner dishes I haven't had for a very long time. Chops Stix was close to me for authentic Chinese food. If you follow my post, I highly recommended this place for Dim Sum and lunch. I haven't been at Chop Stix for dinner. Boy, am I glad because when I arrived I was hungry. One of my favorite dishes was the salt and pepper squid. The batter was light and crisp and the seasoning was well balanced with equal salt and pepper. I also ordered the pork chop with Peking sauce. In this dish the pork chop is cut thinly us dish is slightly coated with cornstarch and then deep fried to a crispy crunchy crust and a thin Peking sweet sauce stir fry quickly. What I got was chunks of thick pork chop, lightly coated with cornstarch, barely deep fried, resulting in a soggy crust with heavy Peking sauce on it. It was terrible. Now I always revisit restaurant that I give a good rating and I believe restaurants get one shot when they serve a customer. I complained to the waitress and all she said was she would tell the cook. She was fully aware the dish was terrible and yet she still served it. Did she under estimate me just because I was Chinese American?
I'll be sure not to have dinner here at Chop Stix/Rosedale. I'll stick to the Dim Sum and lunches.
On a scale of 1-5 and 1 being the worst and 5 being the best I give my dinner a 1 Poor! Never ever for dinner. It was terrible and they should be ashamed!
