BUFFALO, N.Y. - One of the things people like about places like Subway, Moe's Southwest Grill and so on, is being able to customize everything that goes into your meal. But have you ever done that with Chinese food before?
Enter Kung Food, a year-and-a-half old Taiwanese-Japanese restaurant on Main Street just across from the southern tip of UB's South Campus.
Andy Liu and Ed Young started the place looking to offer people good service, authentic dishes and a whole lot of variety- they offer hundreds of combinations among the different bases, meats and sauces on the menu.
You'll find your standards like sesame chicken and sweet and sour pork, along with vegetarian dishes. Then there's the more unique options- like the Kung Food Special, a delicious pork stew topped with a hard boiled egg- definitely a favorite for Unique Eats. The cucumber salad and Asian-style potato salad are also great sides.
If you've never had bubble tea, what are you waiting for? There are some great options at Kung Food with the imported Taiwanese tea. Get some tapioca added and don't ask for more sugar- it's a good level of sweetness the way they make it.
