Michael & Ping's

We already love Chinese food. But now, thanks to Michael & Ping's and its emphasis on local, fresh ingredients, we can indulge our cravings for good ol' General Tso's without fearing the food coma.
As New Yorkers, we've accumulated some general associations with typical Chinese take-out: piping hot white boxes, fumbling with chopsticks before just grabbing a fork, sampling a variety of dishes that are tasty but ultimately leave you in a weird coma due to all that MSG and sodium...sigh. Alas, it was these same memories that inspired the proprietor of Michael & Ping's in Gowanus. Owned by a Brooklyn native who wanted to recreate all that delicious food of his past but in a healthier, more natural style (read: NO MSG!), M&P's is turning standard Chinese delivery on its head.

The menu has all the classics: Kung Pao Chicken, General Tso's, Beef & Broccoli and Lo Mein. But now it's being made with all local, fresh ingredients, and utilizing a lot less deep-frying and waaaaayyyy less sodium. The industrial-modern dining room befits what the neighborhood is about to become (it's just down the street from the new Whole Foods), and the friendly staff will gladly offer up menu suggestions and favorite dishes ("The General Tso's—I could eat it all day!"). Plus this place is lowering its impact on the environment by taking a few extra steps; it's becoming the first Certified Green Restaurant in Brooklyn. But here's the real question: does this healthier version of sweet & sour chicken taste just as good as the regular chemical-laden version? The answer is yes, but better. Like we said, you feel good after this meal.
