Wah-Hoo Chinese restaurant puts its own spin on dining in the 'D'

There's no shortage of Olde English 'D' sightings when wandering around downtown Detroit, but the one we most recently spotted ranks among the favorites.

The still-kind-of-new Wah-Hoo Chinese restaurant on Congress at Shelby has done wonders for enhancing the street-level of the Murphy-Telegraph Building, including window signage that features the eatery's logo. The Olde English 'D' done in Far Eastern styling is pretty cool.

As for Wah-Hoo, it's a great addition to the downtown food scene. The dining room - which features a full bar complete with a large flat screen - is an upscale-casual area. Much of the food is a little pricier than I normally drop on lunch, but the plate of chicken fried rice was tasty, piled high, and only cost six bucks. They've also got a full sushi bar, if you're into eating such things.

Whether for a quick lunch, dinner out on the town, or a few drinks at happy hour, Wah-Hoo is definitely a place worth checking out. Find it at 536 Shelby, or call 313-324-8700.
