So dearest wife and I decided to go to this great pizza place, Pizza Schmizza. However, It has apparently been closed for about a year or two. Lovely. In it’s place is Three Forks Wok & Grill.
To start, I ordered sweet potato fries.
They were okay, with 2 major exceptions. #1 is that they come with a terrible chili catsup. I found the flavor to be downright offensive. So I asked for some regular catsup. They told me they don’t usually have it. He found me a bit in the back however.
It came in what seems to be a salad bowl. The other problem is that they were so heavily salted that I had to wipe the salt off of each fry. It kind of ruined the taste. After a while, I started keeping it on the plate for visual.
Thankfully, the main course arrived. I had the Rice Wok with flank steak. I didn’t get the carrots I ordered in it.
To start, the steak was cooked competently. It was tender, juicy, and not overly seasoned. Pink in the middle, but not cold. The wild rice was blank and flavorless. The peppers and snow peas also seemed to have no real flavor. The only non-meat flavor that seemed to be from the almonds. The ones that were actually toasted and candied were decently sweet. I actually enjoyed those.
Dearest wife had the teriyaki tofu pad thai. She really liked it for the first 10 bites or so. The tofu was burned and overly firm. The mushrooms (which she generally loves, yech) were horribly slimy, and she described it as “like eating raw meat”. She said what left the worst taste in her mouth was the price.
The price is something to talk about as well. For the two of us, it was $29. That’s twice what it would have cost to go to Mucho Gusto, which is much much better overall. And the ambiance left something to be desired. The vase full of yucky lucky bamboo was cloudy with a chance of meatballs.Eww.
So with that, the two of us went on our merry way, $30 poorer to our final destination of the evening… that bastion of romance and delight
We looked at trees in the garden center, and it was actually kind of fun. A fine date night in the books.
Final verdict for the evening: Overpriced, under-flavored, unappealing. The best thing on the menu was diet dr. pepper. Three thumbs down for Three Forks Wok and Grill. Run, don’t Wok away from Three Forks. Also, I’m pretty sure Home depot has better food.
