Le Chinois in Burlington

We had a pleasantly surprising take home meal from the Burlington location of Le Chinois last weekend. I say pleasantly surprising because I have never once been overwhelmed at the quality of a Chinese meal from anywhere. I am notoriously picky when it comes to this food. When the group we were with decided on Chinese food, I was quietly dreading my dinner.

We ordered your typical selections, spring rolls, chicken rice, beef with noodles and vegetables, chicken with almonds etc. However, the difference being that what arrived on my plate looked nothing like your typically fried and greasy, overprocessed glutinous chinese food one has come to expect. There were generous helpings of recognizable, carefully cut vegetables, and more than just carrots and celery! As well, there were no green onions in sight, a boon for someone like me who gets a bad reaction from them. The best part was not being hungry an hour later!

Just for reference, an order of the Beef with Asian Noodles (thick) and vegetables would have fed two people and would be an excellent quick meal if you were passing by that area. (Brant Street, Burlington Power Centre)

I can't speak for other's experiences or the other locations but this was a banner day for us! Just wanted to share.
