Simple Pleasures at Ho Ho

Sometimes the simple things in life are the best — and that goes for fresh vegetables as well. There’s no need for heavy sauces or extravagant recipes when vegetables are nice and fresh, as a simple preparation lets the natural flavors shine through.
I love fresh string beans, and when they’re prepared just right, I could eat a mountain of them. That’s why, when eating out, it’s so special when you find a restaurant that prepares a dish that fits your tastes perfectly.
Popular for its bountiful buffet, Ho Ho Chinese Cuisine also offers a full a la carte menu. And for those who choose not to eat meat, there’s a “Vegetable” section just for you.
With a name like “Dried String Beans” ($7.95), you may overlook this dish on Ho Ho’s extensive menu, but if you love fresh green beans as much as I do, that would be a mistake.
The beans are stir-fried with sliced red bell peppers, onions and dash of minced garlic, and the nearly dry cooking method results in appealingly crisp-tender vegetables. This colorful dish is not only delicious, but pleasing to the eye as well. It’s that simple.
