Number 22 here was “Chicken with straw mushrooms and ginger.” Served piping hot in a small steel wok-type thing. The chicken was tender, though slightly bland. The sauce was pungent and fruity-spicy, due to copious amounts of fresh ginger. A little odd: the straw mushrooms. They looked like the eyes of an extinct amphibious bi-ped, and shared a similar consistency. Or at least I figure this is how the eyes of an extinct amphibious bi-ped might feel in my mouth. All in all, a fairly tame, but quite tasty Number 22. The beer was Warsteiner, a self-proclaimed “premium beer,” but definitely my least favorite german industrial beer.
Man wah is a Hamburg-institution and offers good quality chinese food and dim sum. I think they are almost always open.
