On the very southernmost edge of Park Slope, New King Food is a reliable spot for late night takeout—something this end of the neighborhood lacks. The menu runs the gamut from the standard Kung Pao Chicken to assorted types of Lo and Chow Mein, chicken and broccoli, and spareribs. Items marked spicy pack a negligible amount of punch and most sauces seem to be of the universal brown or red varieties. As with most grab-and-go Chinese joints, there’s also a menu of fast food-ish selections, centering on fried chicken (buffalo wings, nuggets, fingers). New King takes this menu flexibility a step further than most, however, and includes a side of green and yellow plantains as an alternative to the usual pork fried rice or French fries. The décor is sparse —an aging black menu board with eerily familiar yellowing photos that seem to be mandatory in all neighborhood Chinese restaurants, and a few handwritten specials tacked along the wall—and the seating is limited to two picnic-style tables, usually occupied by those waiting for their takeout orders.
