Today I was hungry and wanted to try something new that was local. That in itself is a daunting task here in Simi. I needed a place that would satisfy my very picky wife which meant that it had to have a lot of offerings with a lot of veggies. Because I swore that recently I had seen a sign advertising new management I decided to try Canton Chinese. After speaking to the owner I found out that they changed hands over two years ago. So much for paying attention to signs. Nevertheless we walked in to an empty restaurant at 3pm on a Sunday. We ordered chicken chow mein, sesame chicken, vegetable fried rice and egg rolls. The egg rolls were sort of plain, filled with crisp veggies and not greasy. The chow mein was a far cry from what I had for years as a kid. It was delicious and not drenched in the dreaded white flour sauce I have often had. The veggies were crisp, delicious and and colorfully appealing. The sesame chicken was not drenched in a heavy kind of sauce but rather had a spicy tangy flavor which I loved. The fried rice was good but may have been overdone somewhat having an almost dark look to it but I still liked it. Everything was plated beautifully on modern hip looking dishes. The place is at least two steps above the local neighborhood Chinese restaurants. The total with two iced teas was $34.10 plus tip. I will be back soon.
