Old Skool Chinese Food - Lunch

Pin It


I grew up eating chop suey, egg foo young, and bbq pork.  There aren't too many old skool places that serve this kind of food anymore.  I've passed this place many times and one night on my way home decided to stop in, saw a lot of people eating here, wanted to try their won ton soup.

at Chinese Garden Restaurant

Wor Won Ton Mein
$8.50

Won tons, noodles, vegetables,
bbq pork, and shrimp

It was just OK


I came back for the Lunch Specials,
which I love at these old skool places.

Lunch Specials
Tuesday to Saturday
11:30 am to 3 pm 

Crispy Nooldes with Egg Flower Soup
(part of this lunch special)


 Shrimp with Lobster Sauce
and rice
with an egg roll.
$7.50
(including the egg drop soup, tea, and fortune cookie)

Not a bad lunch deal for $7.50
and it brought back memories.

Wasn't a fan of the egg roll tho,
was more like a brick filled with meat.

They have 20 different lunch specials
or you can order from the main menu.


Fortune Cookie Time!
With an upcoming lotto jackpot of over $500 Million,
if this is my last post, you'll know why...
