Call up Sunflower Garden for a quick little takeout order, and don't be surprised if you're quoted an hour wait. Stick it out. Throw on a couple of Parks And Rec episodes, and then head to this Greenwood spot to pick up some of the best Chinese food in Seattle.
Their wontons in chili oil have a white pepper kick, burst of sweetness, and juicy pork that fuses to each dumpling wrapper. We could eat a tub of those alone and call it a meal. But that'd be ignoring the General Tso's chicken, complete with huge thigh pieces that involve more meat than crackly breading. Or the steak in their beef and broccoli, which chews like it's been tenderized by Glinda The Good Witch wielding a sledgehammer. (The Wizard Of Oz would have ended a lot differently if that were part of the book.) Or garlicky battered chicken wings whose crunch breaks the sound barrier. Only an hour for that? Worth it.
