Anyone can deep fry the shit out of
bad chicken and make it relatively palat-
able. So the quality of most General Tso's
Chicken depends on the sauce. China
Gate's General Tso's sauce is heavy with-
out being overbearing, has an appealing
balance of sweet and spicy and mixes well
with the rice. The portion-to-price ratio is
also agreeable. A tangy experience.
Nicknamed "the Wu" by Daily Arts,
this Liberty Street mainstay's General
unfortunately misfires. The chicken is
too squishy and sports a disturbingly
bright red glisten, while the sauce's spice
level is just shy of tolerable. Probably not
helped by the copious peppers. The Wu's
still delicious, but indulge your feminine
side and stick with the Princess Chicken.
GENERAL TSO'S CHICKEN
Theysay "Luckyin chicken, unluckyin
love." Well the people at Lucky Kitchen
must have sad romances, because their
chicken is pretty damn good. Tender and
juicy chicken mixes with a thick, delicous
sauce. What's missing here is the kick.
General Tso's is at its best when it has a
little spice, but Lucky Kitchen offers a
purely savory experience.
San Fu provides a cheap, swift and
marginally satisfying General Tso's
Chicken dish. The chicken itself is of
McNugget quality, which is to be expect-
ed. But while the sauce is runny and
underwhelmingly spicy, it's not a com-
plete disgrace. San Fu's rendition is not
the best in town, but it's not so bad as to
shame the good General.
AND THE WINNER IS: CHINA GATE
LAST WEEK'S RESULTS:
Charlie White and Meryl Davis skate out onto the Olympic ice. As they begin
their routine, each is lulled by the other into a false sense of security. That is,
until Charlie White uses a flourish of the arm to whip out his tarantula.and
toss in onto Meryl's shoulder. But Meryl is prepared for Charlie's sudden but
inevitable betrayal, and she starts up a game of "Bop It Extreme" then tosses
it to Charlie as a misdirection. And while Charlie does become quite
distracted, it is too late. The tarantula has already struck.
WINNER: CHARLIE WHITE

There's a difference between communicating ideas and experiencing them. It's the
difference between memorizing a foreign language and thinking in one. Between
studying ruins and excavating them. Between analyzing dreams and living them. The
difference is huge. And it's the very essence of the University of Chicago Summer
Session. Where students are engaged at every level-intellectually, socially, personally,
and professionally. Where you can benefit from the value of taking university courses
in an accelerated, intensive format. Join us this summer for an extraordinary learning
experience at the academic home to 85 Nobel laureates.
