Ho Lee Cow!

No.. wait.. it’s Ho Lee Chow (홀리 챠우)! he-he-he I know…I know…I am sooo cheesy but I know you all love it. Anywho, Ho Lee Chow is a restaurant located in Itaewon and I got to grab a quick bite to eat with my co-worker while I was in the area for work.


Ho Lee Chow serves up Chinese-American dishes. These dishes range from sweet and sour pork, General Tso chicken, vegetable fried rice, Szechaun beef, to fried noodles, and lemon chicken. Really, there is just about something for everyone because of the plethora of menu choices. The food at Ho Lee Chow really takes me back to memories of ordering chinese in our hometown of Pennsylvania. Isn’t it funny how the little simple things in life tend to do that sometimes?
