Re: “Chopstick Gourmet

I not infrequently disagree with Boise Weekly restaurant reviews, but usually because I like the restaurant less than the reviewer did. So far I've succeeded in biting my tongue on those occasions, although this was very difficult in the case of Pizzalchik. However, I think this review of Chopstick was unfairly negative and feel compelled to come to their defense. Chinese is my favorite cuisine, and I've been systematically exploring the best places I could find from coast to coast for over 40 years, so I feel qualified to review it. I recently tried Chopstick for lunch, and everything I had was excellent and very fresh. On another occasion I picked up a take-out order of chow fun, which was also excellent. I suspect the problems the reviewer encountered were mainly due to visiting the buffet at an off-peak time, which it is only common sense to avoid. P.S. Potstickers are not supposed to be crisp. P.P.S. Ocean City on Overland is another excellent Chinese buffet, and has a wider variety of dim sum.
