Rush Hour: Americanized Chinese Food Delivered Straight to your Door!

So, listen. We know you’ve been enduring and patient, as have we.

And today, I declare us all free of the dolor of nostalgia we have had to suffer through all this time.

A Panda Express clone, the King of American Chinese food (or what my dad would call “fake Chinese food”), is finally within reach here in Jakarta!

My favorites (which I suspect are yours too): Crab Rangoon, General Tso’s Chicken, Kung Pao Chicken, and let’s be honest, any combination of orange plus some kind of meat meat, or lemon plus some kind of meat, are mine (and yours) to devour.

Simply call Rush Hour and you’ll be on your way to scarfing down a mixed bag of comfort grub we know you have so dearly missed, as have we.

On my recent trip to Shanghai, I stopped by Cha’s Restaurant for a delicious feast of what we considered Americanized Chinese food. And although Cha’s serves the gourmet kind, we’re happy Rush Hour delivers the non-gourmet kind, perfectly packaged in back-to-basic white paper boxes.

At today’s food tasting, I called on some professional (only by passion) gourmands and big eaters to help me (not that I needed help) chow down the lineup of entrées brought to us by Rush Hour. We began nibbling and gobbling, and it didn’t take long before those boxes were transformed from enticing to empty. We wiped our every bit and piece. Clean.

Everything you see is made pretty much made from scratch, including the sauces and other condiments. And there’s a whole lot of difference between the yucky, frozen kind and Rush Hour’s fresh kind. And even drenched in sauce, the veggies (celery, onion, bell peppers) remained crunchy. The rice (yes, I notice the little things) isn’t the stiff, dry kind you get at many restaurants; it was supple and moist. Yes, white rice matters. What’s more, you’ll be rewarded with a satiated belly without breaking the bank!

My favorites (no surprise here): Crab Rangoon, Kung Pao Chicken, and Spicy Oriental Wings. And the most pleasant surprise of all: the CHILI OIL – fragrant, garlicky goodness. What can I say? As much as I love proper Chinese food, I also can’t get enough of the “fake” kind. Dying to have your share? Rush Hour delivers and caters for events. Drooling? Get your own!
