If you ever find yourself traveling through Covington, WA you have to make it a point to stop and eat at Golden Phoenix Chinese Restaurant. Golden Phoenix is my favorite Chinese restaurant because the food is really, really good. When I go, I like to order the luncheon special #12 ($6.50), which is the sweet & sour chicken, pork fried rice, egg roll and your choice of wonton, egg flower or hot & sour soup. The fried chicken is white meat chicken that is pretty juicy and is covered in the usual red sweet & sour sauce. The broth of the wonton soup is very flavorful and the wontons are pork-filled. I also sometimes order the moo goo gai pan, which is white-meat chicken in a white sauce with snow peas, carrots, mushrooms and other veggies. My mom’s favorite item is the General T’so Chicken, which is a batter-dipped, deep-fried chicken with a dark sweet and spicy sauce. She thinks it’s the best in Washington.

The restaurant has Asian décor and the tables have the Chinese zodiac paper placemats. The service is ok but the food is the reason we like to eat there. When you dine in, you also are served hot tea. They do offer combination dinners or just the bigger servings of entrees from beef with Szechuan garlic sauce to ma po tofu and more. The food at Golden Phoenix really tastes fresh and delicious and is a better choice than the neighborhood Panda Express.
