ABC Chinese helped make our night.
My friend and I found ABC chinese after fruitlessly looking for good food and an open place in ABQ on a Mothers-day Sunday. When we walked in the door we were greeted by delectable smells, cultural pieces that made the environment what it is, and a nice and enthusiastic older Asian woman who turned out to be our waitress. We didn't have to wait one second to be seated, which was great because starved was an understatement for our condition. Served tea as an accommodation right away we began to tackle the menu. You will be greeted with a wide array of dishes that covers chinese, korean, and seafood asian cookery. Most meals that I saw were in the 7 to 8 dollar range, a fantastic price for the quantity of food. After much deliberation and help from our server I ordered the general tzao and my friend a korean dish. Korean dishes come with soup complimentary, other dishes require it ordered on the side. Our food came in perfect timing, the soup first (crispy wanton), delicious, then our meals still sizzling on iron. A mass quantity of food for the both of us just over 15 dollars including my soup, and extra vegetables. Everything was perfectly cooked and seasoned, and the rice was a great match. Our server was quick to meet our needs, and we had a blast being there.
On the downside, the lack of vegetables matched with some dishes comes as a slight nuisance, as you have to order them extra with your dish..but isn't too much of a hassle because the dishes and extra orders are all extremely affordable. We could tell the restaurant had just been through a major rush because the servers were struggling to clear the tables. This made the environment look a little dingy, and there may be a slight amount of overkill in regards to display of chinese objects to give it that asian feel..just a little crowded. Parking some places at night in albuquerque can be a little sketchy, this was one of those occasions, but overall it doesn't matter. Great price and great service are key. The food, service, and people at the restaurant were all amazing. My friend and I had some great conversations with patrons and servers alike. I would recommend this place whole heartedly, and hope to return with an empty stomach soon. I haven't experienced what the other reviews say, but hope you have a great time there too.
