New China Restaurant: Hole in the Wall in Manteca, CA

We were in Manteca to fetch some water. Then we decided to check out a local restaurant for late lunch. One restaurant had really good reviews on both Google and Yelp. So we decided to check it out.

New China Restaurant is located at the Marketplace shopping complex along Yosemite Avenue. The restaurant is a Chinese restaurant. But people were raving about their sushi. Sushi of course is Japanese. I'm a sucker for Japanese food and you can imagine my excitement.

We ordered some combination plates and prawn tempura. I had a combination plate with fried rice, deep fried shrimps, and sweet and sour pork. My brother had one with chow mien, fried rice and deep fried shrimp.

The fried rice was good. The sweet and sour pork dish is a gem. It's really good. And I'd definitely go back for it. The chow mien had lots of vegetables on it. My brother didn't love it as much as I did though.

The prawn tempura was below expectations. The same goes with the deep fried shrimp. Both were too oily. They did give it the right crunch. But we could taste more flour than prawns or shrimps. It felt like eating those shrimp-flavored junk foods.

On hindsight, we should have ordered sushi. After all, it was what people were writing good reviews about. But I guess we were just true lovers of tempura. We always order tempura when we see it on the menu.
