Profile

With a proposal of “modern” but casual Chinese grub, Michael & Ping’s fits the quick-but-not-gross niche: helpful for those living on the fringes of Park Slope but certainly not worth a trip even from a neighborhood over. What is modern about this experience, beyond the poured concrete floors and Ikea pendent lamps, is not clear. A scan of the menu finds standards like dumplings, General Tso’s chicken, and chow fun with some Vietnamese and Thai dishes mixed in. Some creativity is evidenced in the appetizer section with petite pork buns and chunky tamarind spare ribs, but the starters are uniformly tinged with a vinegary aftertaste that’s overpowering, canceling out whatever underlying flavor might have been. Whether in apps or mains, meat is often chewy as is the case with a sour tangerine beef and black-bean-sauce-slathered roast pork. Veggies fare no better—eggplant is drowned in a brown gravy, salvaged only by an interesting fried Himalayan red rice side.
