Restaurant Review Roulette: C & T Wok

Authenticity.  Greg Cox loves the “hole in the wall” restaurant that offers traditional, “authentic” cuisine.  And he really likes traditional Chinese food, so I suspect that he’s going to give a favorable review of Morrisville’s C & T Wok, a place that offers standard Chinese-American and Thai food, but it also has a traditional Szechuan menu.  Here, Cox can fulfill his cravings for organ meats and tendon dishes and the heat that this cuisine provides.

Greg Cox enjoys his fine dining, but it’s this type of place that really gets him excited.  Now I have no idea of whether the folks at C & T Wok do it well, but I bet Cox will like it just fine.

I’m saying 3 to 3.5 stars for this one.

5 stars — 963 to 1

4.5 stars – 19 to 1

4 stars — 9 to 2

3.5 stars — 5 to 3

3 stars — 3 to 2

2.5 stars —  5 to 2

2 stars — 4 to 1

1.5 stars — 9 to 1

1 star — 27 to 1

So who’s been to C & T Wok?  And why does this place make me sing, C+C Music Factory’s “Everybody Dance Now?”  You can thank me for the rest of the day for planting that song in your head.  Along with “Wok on the Wild Side” and “Wok This Way.”  The puns have ended.  Nothing more to see here.

Edit, July 23, 2010: As expected, Greg Cox liked C&T Wok, giving it 3.5 stars.  And now I’m going to have to try that clam soup.

    I haven’t been to C&T, but if it’s anything like SuperWok or 35 Chinese’s Szechuan menu I’ll have to go soon.

    I’ve been and it’s magnificent. It’s hard to get the staff to make your dish SPICY, Szechuan style unless you’re Chinese or you come with a Chinese guest. This is annoying but the food really is delicious and the service is attentive and friendly.

    Not to mention that the lunch specials make this place really affordable. C&T is packed with the RTP crowd during lunch.

    I bet Greg will give this spot 3.5 stars. This looks like a place that could be good, though having Thai, American Chinese and Sichuan on the menu makes me a bit apprehensive.

    Hubby and I stopped in for lunch today. Limited menu at lunch, but had shredded pork and smoked tofu, and kung pao chicken (which she assured us was not american kung pao, but traditional kung pao). Both were very good and the meat was fresh and tender, without all the sauce that usally overwhelms bad chinese dishes. The soup was pretty pedestrian, though. Look forward to trying it for dinner.
