The Lingnan

Wow it's been waaaay too long since my last blog post! The last few months have been sooo ridiculously busy that every time I go to post I get as far as the Dashboard page and then decide that it's too much work. Heh. So, I'm going to really try and get back at it.

Anyway, the fella and I ordered in from The Lingnan tonight. My friend Em used to live down the block from the restaurant, and she was always a little weirded out by it because there are no windows on the outside of the building (she's a bit of an odd duck... which she would totally take as a compliment). So, I've wanted to try the The Lingnan for years now just because of that, not to mention they've been featured on The Food Network (which I love).

We ordered: Green Onion Cakes, Gingr Beef, Cantonese Chow Mein, Lemon Chicken and Beef & Broccoli.

My verdict: eh, pretty good but nothing special. It was definitely tasty, but there wasn't really anything to differentiate it from all the other Chinese food I've eaten in my life. The high point was probably the Green Onion Cake with it's deliciously spicy red sauce; the low point was the blandish Lemon Chicken.

I'd order from The Lingnan again, but I'm not in any rush.

  1. OMG... before you give up on the Lingnan you have to try the Hot and Dry Spicy Chicken (better known by those who frequent Lingnan as "crack" chicken cause you'll always be back for more).. a close second their ginger beef. Just sayin'
