We have enjoyed several additional Friday morning lunches at ‘Lougheed Wonton’ since my last written review — I only posted some photos after those meals. Our latest dining experience was a Sunday morning lunch, and I thought it was about time to include a review...update.
Daughter picked us up at about 10:15 am, and we were there, and parked in front of the restaurant a few minutes before the ‘open’ sign was lighted. We chatted out front for only a couple of minutes, before our server came to the door and called us to come inside. A nice, friendly start, to what turned out to be another fine, and so well-enjoyed dining experience. We were the first diners inside, but were joined by others very soon after we had seated, and a good number of other tables were filled not very long after. Being a Sunday, I had expected it to be busier earlier than our weekday experiences, and that was the case.
Service to our table was friendly, very cordial, and totally ‘on-the-mark’ — with menus, pots of hot tea & water, and hot sauce — and dishes ordered, came from kitchen to table, in a very timely sequence (and looking so good!!).
I ordered all dishes (five in total), from the ‘Chef’s Lunch Specials’ menu this time. We have enjoyed several of them, and have always found them well-sized, very well-prepared, and priced at $8.75/each, such great value offerings.
The dishes ordered this time included: spicy salt squid (crispy, thin coatings, sweet & tender squid meat inside) — sweet & sour boneless pork (pork crispy outside, so tender inside, pineapple & veggies tender, but not overcooked, sauce, a very colourful, sweet & savoury mix) — rice roll & spareribs in black bean sauce (tender steamed ribs, on & around a bed of steamed rice rolls, nicely-flavoured sauce, a tasty, first-time taste for us) — soy sauce chow mein (a favourite dish, a sort of ‘smokey’ flavourful, and very tasty combination of noodles, bean sprouts, other veggies & meats) — garlic gai lan (listed as Chinese broccoli - so young, tender, and tasty).
A so thoroughly-enjoyed dining experience for us — I have always rated them 5 star, but this one was definitely a “bursting” 5 star performance!!More
