Keung's Delight - Warden / Steeles - Report

Jacquilynne | Jul 14, 2005 10:07 PM

As part of my continuing plan to try all the new restaurants in the T&T Supermarket plaza at the corner of Warden & Steeles, I went to Keung's Delight tonight. Previous visits to the plaza had revealed that Pho Viet is very good, and Monster Sushi is not. You can draw your own conclusions about Boston Pizza and Kelsey's

Keung's Delight serves wok frying oriented chinese food - lots of fried rice, fried noodles, stir frys, etc. The room itself is subdued and pretty, but a bit cluttered - like they didn't have enough storage for all the things that should have been in the back somewhere. The service is friendly but scattered. The room was busy, and the rest of the clientele was all Chinese.

I ordered some fairly tame dishes - fried noodle with beef in XO sauce, vegetables with oyster sauce and red bean and black jelly drink with ice cream.

The servings were very generous, especially at the prices. For less than $8 the platter of fried rice noodles was huge, and contained generous amounts of beef. XO sauce had just a hint of spice. The dish was greasier than I'd prefer it, but less greasy than most restaurants serve it.

Vegetables in oyster sauce turned out to be steamed Chinese broccoli with a side dish of oyster sauce. The oyster sauce was thick, almost a paste, too strong, and very, very salty. The broccoli, though, was perfectly steamed and reasonably tastey even without the sauce.

With tax and tip, the total was $22, which is a fair bit for that kind of Chinese, until you factor in the fancy drink ($3), and the fact that the leftovers will be both lunch and dinner tomorrow. A light eater could probably make four meals out of what was served.

Probably the best thing I can say about this restaurant though, is that the whole time I was there, every dish that went by, I thought 'Hrmm, that looks really good.' I'll have go back and try some of them.
