Wang's North Park
Asian food straight from... the desert

Because the desert is a bit hot and looks wayyy too much like Arizona, the folks at Wang's decided to open a sister resto to their Palm Springs joint in the cavernous confines of a 15000sqft North Park spot that sat vacant for three years, until it listened to that Beyonce song and got upgraded with a sprawling wraparound bar, and authentic bamboo flooring/ sweet tree sculptures to evoke their "tree-theme", which actually doesn't seem h-oaky at all.

The "pan-Asian" cuisine is served family-style and, while they've included boring things called vegetables (sp?), the true showstoppers include double-pan-fried noodles with "dark sauce" and choice of meat, walnut shrimp in a honey mustard aioli, or spicy oyster-sauced "HUNAN PORK", which is really only one diagonal line away from some serious sex with nomadic people who migrated into Europe in 370 AD. Aside from 18 brews to choose from, they've got a nine-strong 'tail list highlighted by a twisted take on a Moscow Mule replacing vodka with Scotch called the Kilt Lifter, the Long Dong Duck (vodka, lemongrass, cucumber, lemon juice, simple syrup, and soda), and another with blanco Tequila/ Cointreau/ agave nectar/ fresh ginger/ and lime juice called The Skinny Ginger, whose deliciousness makes it surprisingly difficult to kick.

For those who like to rock... cheap, every night from 4-630 they're slangin' under-four-buck wells and three-buck apps like edamame hummus with taro chips, which, unlike this joke, somehow manage to be good without being corny.
