Golden Chopsticks

Golden Chopsticks is located on Wheeling Island and is pretty well-known in the region for having some of the area's best Chinese food.

When I had some extra time,  I made a small detour from home to check it out.

The inside is pretty large, but dated. There's a faint smell of cigarette smoke - maybe from a time long ago when it was allowed inside? But there are ornate decorations and a few different dining spaces.

There was a menu board featuring the day's specials, and the menu features a large variety.

The menu has both house specialties and chef specialties, gourmet entrees, lunch specials, classics, specialty menu, and even more. The specialty menu caught my eye, with options like seafood udon noodles, wagyu steak, and jumbo shrimp with oriental eggplant.

But I ordered Thai Chili Shrimp - jumbo shrimp tossed with fresh zucchini, snow peas, mushrooms, red bell peppers, bamboo shoots, and water chestnuts all together in chef's homemade sweet and spicy Thai Chili Sauce. This was really tasty and definitely had some heat behind it. But it played second fiddle to the flavor. It's the kind of heat that I don't notice until I am downing water because the flavor is so good, the heat is just in the background. Crisp coating, fresh veggies, and a delicious sauce made for a great dish.

I ordered crab cheese wontons and eggrolls. The wontons came in this awesome re-heatable bag and they were great.

Solid eggrolls too.
