Let's dispense with the obvious first: Wang Gang Asian Eats has the most ridiculous name of any restaurant I've ever reviewed. The original location in Edwardsville, Illinois, was called Wang Gang Asian Eats n Beats, which is even more ridiculous. However, I'm visiting the new second location, tucked into the corner of a sprawling strip mall in St. Charles, which has dropped the "n Beats." Still, it is called Wang Gang Asian Eats.Visit the RFT restaurant page late tomorrow afternoon or check back here Wednesday morning to see what I think.
Did I secretly hope to spend the next 1,000 or so words making a series of dick jokes? Maybe. But the Wang Gang menu is largely pun-free. If you want a large serving of fried rice, you must ask for a "Big Wang." If a "Big Wang" is too much for you to handle, a "Little Wang" is available.
