Sunday Bistro

(from December 26)

Another Hong Kong-style cafes on my dad's regular rotation. The service, quite frankly, is shit. Really, what any patron must keep in mind here is that you're not here for the service. You're here for the tea drinks, the cheap food, and the clean restaurant. As long as they bring your food with a minimum of speaking, you'll be fine. This is their new location on Valley Blvd. Enjoy it while it lasts, because it's going to wear out pretty fast.

Every meal is served with vegetable soup. Made with beef broth and lots of cooked-down veggies, this is one of my favorite soups. It's generic, simple, and delicious.

My mother ordered chicken lern mein wong, which translates to "two-sided toasted noodles". A pile of cooked egg noodles are toasted into a crispy patty and topped with chicken cooked in a thick sauce. Sunday does a pretty good job with theirs.

The worst dish of the night as the wor wonton soup. It was a bland seafood soup with a few wontons in it. We wished we'd ordered the regular wonton soup.

Clay pot rice was pretty good. We ordered the classic mixture of Chinese sausage, pork, and shittake mushrooms. It's cooked with a little bit of seasoning, then presented with a side of sauce to add more flavor.

All in all, the food's decent and the drinks are ok. Dad goes here regularly and I tend to visit occasionally whenever I'm home.
