The best way to familiarize oneself with a different country's culture is to spend 10–15 years in one of its maximum-security prisons, but the second-best way is to taste its cuisine. Embrace worldly wonders with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Cantonese and American cuisine at Ding Ho.
Now entering the fourth generation of familial ownership, Ding Ho continues its 55-year tradition of prepping and polishing plates stacked creatively with savory meats. Although many delectable dishes compete for top honors, regulars often launch off from the safe, satiating platform provided by an order of crispy egg rolls ($1.50 each). The char sue bok toy arrives steaming with barbecued pork with Chinese greens in a hot pan ($7.75 dinner only), and the kung pao beef engulfs taste buds with beef, diced vegetables, and peanuts glazed with a hot, spicy sauce ($9.50 dinner only). For eclectic forkfuls of flavor, noodle mavens can indulge in orders of lo mein with pork ($5.75/lunch, $8/dinner), vegetables ($5.25/lunch, $7.50/dinner), or beef ($5.75/lunch, $8.50/dinner) or dig through the curry-splashed Singapore rice noodles in search of buried teeth treasures such as shrimp, chicken, and barbecued pork ($9.95 dinner only).
Embracing domestic desires, Ding Ho's chefs also output a patriotic menu of American staples, including U.S. Choice strip sirloin steaks ($14.25), broiled halibut steaks ($11.25), fillet fish sandwiches ($3.25), all of which grace the table as nearby salt shakers shake the first four bars of the national anthem.
