I've had my share of veg Chinese food, and all of the wonders they work with seitan and gluten never fails to amaze. Even so, I was reluctant to try Evergreen simply because when you find decent Chinese take-out, you don't mess with anything else. It can be so inconsistent. I have this feeling that Evergreen might be the kind of place you have to dine at for a decent turn-out. It took them an hour to deliver my order. That would have been forgiven had the food been worthy. My sweet and sour gluten came with nothing but a container of sauce. No pineapple, no green pepper,no fun? Wack. The tofu and vegetable soup was no better, the most watered down soup to ever grace my Ikea spoons. A handful of actual veg and lifeless ghost-white tofu floated in a huge container of...water. There was more flavor in the fortune cookie, the only safe item of the meal. Stick with Chinatown, Su Xing, or Golden Empress.
And believe it, you don't want to see pictures.
