Monday’s nights are always hard to find a place to eat. Most restaurants typically close Mondays or Tuesdays. For us, these are the two days we are most tired from work – call it Monday Blues – that we simply don’t want to cook. We made the mistake of going to Kam Ho Restaurant 金豪麵家 to be greeted by closed doors and dimmed lights. But I really wanted their dinner combo with steamed fish. On the other hand, we go to Neptune Wonton Noodle 鳳嗚粥麵 all too often, so that was out of the question… Tonight we decided on Jubilant Restaurant 恩榮小館, which is actually opened by some of the good folks who was from Neptune. You’ll notice some resemblance in the menu.
The restaurant is a cozy place but with questionable interior design – for one matter: carpet. Carpet makes the place stuffy, old and appears dirty with stains. Laminate or tiles would be a much better option. A visit to the Interior Design Show would be helpful. But who am I to complain in this beggar / chooser predicament?
We ordered a dinner combo for two for 27.99: Choice of 2 dishes with a complimentary marinated half chicken and soup.
Daily Soup: Carrots and corn. A little watery but nonetheless tasty.
Braised cod fish and tofu stone pot: a sizzling hot pot filled with lightly coated flash fried cod and tofu, Chinese mushroom slivers and cabbage.
Salt and pepper chicken wings: a crispy skin with decent sized flappers.
Service was friendly and food came out prompt. I saw on their tele that they have lunch specials for fish ball noodle soup plus a drink for under 6 bux. Guess where I’m going for lunch next time?
