Take-out from South China

Neither of is felt like cooking last night, so we sent out for Chinese food at a nearby restaurant, the South China on Mt. Pleasant near Davisville.

All delivered Chinese food should be as good.

Nothing special about the egg rolls, although they were crisp and not greasy, The spareribs were long and meaty, not bones with a few scraps of meat,

The Special Cantonese Chow Mein was, indeed, special. All the ingredients were done just right - all too often in this dish something is either over- or underdone. Broccoli was a fresh green colour, neither mushy nor woody-crunchy (I realize some people like veggies trendily underdone; I am not one of them). The noodles were neither mushy nor hard. The beef was, in particular, tender, not the chewy, tough slab of moo-cow one often gets.

The final dish was their orange chicken, which they say is specially prepared by their main chef. It may very well be, it is extraordinary, I have never had this dish just this way. For one thing, it is seriously hot - certainly one of the spiciest dishes served in a Toronto restaurant.

We’ll be back
