Food In East (5-4100 Marlborough Drive NE) is the little Chinese restaurant that had the unfortunate luck of being the scene of a violent crime in 2008.
It has reopened since the incident, and we, regulars to the restaurant, were saddened to see the drastic drop in their business. Granted, many customers probably are reluctant to patronize a former 'crime scene'; but, the owners still need to make a living, so they continue to plug along. The first time we returned, we were the only people willing to dine in the restaurant. The other customers all ordered food to go.
The food there is home-style Peking and Cantonese food: great crispy chicken, Peking-style pork, steamed pork/egg dishes, and tasty hot pots (our favourite being the eggplant, salted fish, and pork). They also do a pretty good Peking Duck.
The place may not be the fanciest or have the best ambience, but the food is topnotch.
