Royal Wok Chinese Restaurant (2560 Royal Ln Suite 100)
During my much-needed vacation in Dallas, TX, I discovered a culinary gem that quickly became my sanctuary after long and adventurous days exploring the city – the Royal Wok Chinese Restaurant.
Their hot and sour soup is an absolute delight, warming both the body and the soul with its impeccable blend of flavors.

Royal Wok Chinese Restaurant isn't just a place to eat; it's an essential part of my vacation experience, where delicious food and top-notch service combine to create a truly royal dining adventure.
Szechuan Chinese Restaurant (4411 Lemmon Ave #108)
I have an absolute passion for the cuisine at Szechuan Chinese Restaurant! Today, I indulged in their exquisite sesame chicken, and I must say, it was absolutely sensational. The flavors were so rich and satisfying that I can't help but gush about it!
Another favorite of mine is their orange beef, which boasts a delightful crispy texture that's simply irresistible. When it comes to their combination fried rice and combination lo mein, the taste experience is consistently outstanding, leaving me craving more every time.
One remarkable thing about Szechuan is their generous portions; they always serve up hearty portions that ensure you get your money's worth. And let's not forget their delightful appetizers - the egg rolls, fried dumplings, and hot and sour soup are all must-tries! It's safe to say I'm addicted to them.
Today, I ventured into something new and had their Chicken Lo Mein, and it did not disappoint. It lived up to the high standards I've come to expect from Szechuan Chinese Restaurant. Their commitment to delivering exceptional flavors and portions keeps me coming back for more.
Sum Dang Good Chinese (3011 Gulden Ln)
Sum Dang Good Chinese in Dallas, TX, certainly lives up to its name, offering a dining experience worth raving about.
Their soup dumplings, a crowd favorite, are incredibly popular, and it's not hard to see why – they are simply delicious!
The food here is bursting with flavor, making each bite a culinary delight. Alongside this, the service is top-notch, ensuring a memorable dining experience. However, there was one minor issue – the table I was seated at had a wobble that persisted throughout the meal.
I initially thought the maos pork would steal the show, with its generously-sized chunks of pork belly and garlic. However, the Mongolian beef proved to be equally impressive, with its remarkable flavor making it a tough choice between the two.
To round off our meal, we indulged in the fortune cookie cheesecake, which exceeded expectations. Unlike what I anticipated – simple cheesecake with crushed fortune cookies on top – it surprised me with a fortune cookie crust that added a unique texture and flavor. The dessert also featured a luscious strawberry puree, sizable cookie chunks scattered throughout, and a dollop of whipped cream on top.
Sum Dang Good Chinese truly lives up to its name, offering a sumptuous and memorable dining experience that keeps you coming back for more.
