    Like it or not, I'm still here.

    We're heading back up to Lake County for the March outing. Hong Kong Chop Suey gets some LTH Love via stevez and the American - Cantonese Egg Rolls thread - viewtopic.php?f=14&t=41121&start=90&sp=486707

    I've driven past this place a million times. Never thought of stopping in. Time to remedy the situation. Please join us on the 14th. As always, bring a friend.

    Hi,

    Ok, I will bite. Probably my friend, Helen, too.

    Thanks for taking us to the land beyond Highland Park!

    Regards,

    If I didn't need to be in downtown Chicago at 1:30, I'd be there in a heartbeat. If I can change my appointment, I will.

    I've actually heard about this place for several years, so would love to join you. However, be advised -- I'll be on a road trip 3/2-3/13. So if I get a flat tire somewhere hours away from Chicago, I may not make it. But the plan is to be there.

    Oh yes, in Katie's and my backyard. Don't know how we'll order, but the lunch specials are dirt-cheap and quite large and tasty in that wonderful comfort food-ish Kow Kow/China Chef Jewish-American-Chinese vein. A lot of us grew up with our tastebuds trained that way. Hong Kong is similar. And of course, the egg rolls.

    One of my first jobs was driving delivery for Skokie's Ah Fong, which was first on Church/Gross Pt. kiddy-corner from the Skatium, then moving to adjacent to the Skokie Swift station on Dempster. Cantonese guys slaving over hot woks, great memories.

    I'll be there.

    Since this is my "go to" place about seven miles from my home in north Libertyville, I'm definitely "in."

    Eddie, you talked Dave into this, didn't you? Constant haranguing---an excellent strategy!

    I'll be there of course!

    BTW, Hong Kong Chop Suey is a good place to know about if-no-when you visit either of Mundelein's two-count-'em-two craft brewpubs, both within a few blocks: Tighthead and Bosaki's. Neither has a kitchen but both welcome food deliveries and carry-ins.

    p.s., Esteemed Coordinator: not big enough news to constitute an opening, but ... exterior lights on at Yu's Mandarin in Vernon Hills! A hopeful neon sign. Alas, still chain-link around the parking lot, but I am keeping an eye peeled.

    Off-topic, but what opens first--Yu's Mandarin or Burt's 2.0?

    The suspense is killing me... 8)

    Wow, Dave must have really cracked the whip on all of you or else he is giving everyone patronage jobs. All these quick responses and no talk of any rebellion. I will be there to investigate.

    Sheee-yit. At one point Dave started choking on some unknown (and possibly psychosomatic) morsel of his bathtub of mish-mosh soup, and Eddie and I nodded knowingly to each other, and we both mouthed the phrase, "...too much hemlock..."

    Much like the present admin in the country, the silent coup is still in play... 8)

    I've been getting take-out from here for years. I think it is pretty good. But sometimes I question my palette. I'm very interested in any comments about the food, positive or negative.
