Our boss took us to Fortune Garden for lunch. We ordered a bunch of dishes to share. It’s a mid sized restaurant with a very simple boxy layout. Since we’ve returned several times, this posts included review from several visits.
Tea is not complimentary! I didn’t know the first time, but the second time we went with 2 persons, it was $1.60, so not sure if it’s $1.60/pot or $0.80/person.
Steamed Scallop and Prawn Dumplings $5.75
Yum!! I love this! So did my co-worker. The prawns and scallops were juicy and plumpy. A big thumbs up. Would love to just order a bunch of these, lol.
Served in a small bamboo steaming basket, there were 4 pieces of dumpling inside. Unlike some places that don’t seem to have enough juice inside, this one was pretty good. One who loved them also complimented on them.
Fortune Garden Special Chow Mein $14.25
A fairly large portion with lots of plumpy, fresh ingredients. I LOVE crispy chow mein, and it’s surprisingly hard to find as not every Chinese restaurants offer them. This had to be one of the best ones. Not too salty – perfect for me. I would love to order just this for my ‘take-out’ lunch for myself next time. The second time we ordered though, there weren’t that much sauce, and it wasn’t that crispy. My boss was disappointed the second time.
My co-worker liked this one after trying it for the first time. Simple, but filling, and with some added chili sauce to spice it up a bit, it’s pretty good. She always orders this every time we go back.
Every Chinese restaurant has this dish, and every time, I wish I had knives to cut them into bit-size pieces. Still, the veggie is great. Nothing special as it’s just steamed without added flavouring, but it’s nice to take a break from the overly savourly dishes. It also goes great with just about every sauce from other dishes.
