We always try to find Chinese restaurants when traveling. My husband found reviews on Da Kao in Sioux City IA and wanted to try it. The review raved about the Fried Rice. How different can Fried Rice Recipes be? After tasting Da Kao's I can tell you "VERY". It had flavor abounding and almost made me wish I had ordered Shrimp Fried Rice so I could have enjoyed an entire plate of it rather than having it as an accompaniment to my Kung Bao Shrimp. The service was quick and friendly. Our server took my special order of only carrots and water chestnuts in my entree. To be sure she had it right,;she read it back to me. My husband ordered Kung Bao Chicken minus the broccoli. We chose Hot and Sour Soup to begin our meal. I could have eaten 2 or more bowls it was so good. We also ordered egg rolls. They were crisp, fresh, tasty and even had bits of egg in them. Then came our entrees and we were NOT disappointed. The servings for lunch were large and JUST as we ordered. The young man assisting with service was very quick to keep my water glass filled.
We were dining at 1:30 PM on a Friday and there were 8 other tables of diners and people kept coming in and out the entire time we were there. If you are ever passing through Sioux City IA and even like Chinese food, you MUST go to Da Kao. You won't be sorry.
