All you can eat.  Those four words are very powerful when you start to think about it.  There was a time in society where a credo like that would fuel the motivation for someone to eat all that the slowly failing heart could desire.  These days, when the world’s economy hurting and the waistlines of society expanding, one can only reflect on what those words truly mean.  Either way you want to look at it, I had a chance to find out for myself at Sushi Palace.

My ever growing quest to try as many different Chinese restaurants in the Greater Montreal Area has expanded to another location in Chinatown.  Over the last 4 years, I’ve been slowly visiting all the places that comprised this special part of the city.  The latest place on my long list of Chinese restaurants is Keung Kee.

As a half member of the growing Chinese community of the Greater Montreal Area, looking for places that do that cuisine justice isn’t an easy task.  One would think that going to the center of that universe is the easy way to go, but there are other places on the island where you might find something reasonable.  With that in mind, we ended up at Fu Kam Wah in Ville Saint-Laurent.

In Montreal, there is one thing that is really tough to do.  Finding Chinese restaurants that stand out is something that I wouldn’t wish on my worst enemy.  In most cases, what we see as our favorites doesn’t necessarily work for each and every single person.  When our tried and true becomes complacent, it is our duty to seek out an alternative.  The first step in that journey is another staple of Chinatown, Mon Shing.

Burgers aren’t the only thing that gets featured here on the GBS.  From time to time, I get the chance to try other things that don’t necessarily fit my domain of specialty.  These dishes are some that I’ll remember for a time to come.

A lot of people would agree, Montreal is one of the place’s with the greatest wealth of Chinese restaurants in North America.  However, one of the other things that we would also agree with is the fact that despite an abundance of those places, there aren’t very many that truly satisfy their customers.  It’s no wonder that when a new place opens up in the midst of Chinatown, it gets the attention of many.  Today’s place in question is Ethan, right in the middle of the pedestrian walkway known as De La Gauchetiere.

My half-Chinese heritage demands that I scour the island for each and every restaurant that does my native cuisine justice.  My purpose for my visit to Mon Nan is not to show what everybody already knows, but to shed light on another aspect that doesn’t get too much play.  There are some pretty decent, well-known restaurants in Montreal where you can get lunch for well under 10 dollars and Mon Nan is one of them.

Part of my heritage demands that I find the places in Montreal that serve my kind of food.  In the past, I’ve made mention of trying to find the very best in Won Ton soup in Montreal.  While trying to find Chinese food in general doesn’t really appeal to me, finding that specific dish does.  While I’ve been given many suggestions to sub-par pork and shrimp won tons in Montreal, only a select few were able to tell me where to find the only type of these dumplings worth having.  A shrimp-only won ton dumpling is far superior to the one I just mentioned and I think I’ve come across another place that does it.

Months ago, I made the decision to revisit some of the places that I did not do justice the first time around.  For the time being, I’m reserving the distinction of a revisit to places where I did not give the 2011-2012 treatment.  If you haven’t noticed by now, starting in the middle of 2011, my posts have been more detailed.  With the fact that what I’m doing is getting more noticed, I am forced to put a lot more work and effort into what I post here.  I should also note that once a restaurant gets revisited, I will never do another post on it, no matter what happens.  So, with that being said, the first restaurant that gets the “lucky” distinction of being the first one to be revisited is my regular Chinese haunt, Fung Shing.

Visit: June 15, 2011

Being only half-Chinese, I do have some stock when it comes to Chinese food. One of my colleagues asked me to come with them to this restaurant, so I obliged, only because the meal was going to be paid for. I found the service to be quite cold. There were 2 servers who were more concerned about the rush than anything else. I also really despise eating in an open mall setting like this.

Won Ton Soup

Tried: June 15, 2011

This is the same won ton soup you can get at any Tiki Ming in Montreal. This is not the best Won Ton soup you’ll ever get either. What this dish looks like is exactly 6 won ton pieces in water, with some onions as decoration. The pieces had no taste and I regretted doing this to myself. So, no change in the best won ton in Montreal choice here.

Shrimp Noodles

Tried: June 15, 2011

This dish contains a cornucopia of various ingredients, mainly featuring shrimp. First of all, I was surprised by the amount of food on this dish. I was doubting whether or not I could finish it. Even though I did finish, I wasn’t blown away or anything. The shrimp weren’t really of high quality. The taste was fine, but nothing spectacular.

This restaurant was recently voted the best Chinese restaurant in Montreal by the readers of the Montreal Mirror. Being half-Chinese myself, I think I’m somewhat qualified to pass judgement on the food of my half ancestry. For one, the restaurant wasn’t that full, but there were the token Chinese families there. The trick is, when you see Chinese people at a Chinese restaurant, the food must be worth it. The waiter serving us looked extremely tired. You should know that waiters in Chinatown work extremely long shifts and it’s a thankless job.

Won Ton Soup

Tried: April 22, 2011

I’m always on the look out for Won Ton Soup. I’ve tried other places that never lived up to my golden standard. This contender also didn’t live up to my expectations. The pieces themselves were a little tough to eat. In my opinion, a good Won Ton piece should be soft and should go down easy. This one didn’t go down easy.

Cantonese Chow Mein

Tried: April 22, 2011

Much like the Won Ton Soup, my standards for Chow Mein are high. Though this tasted fine, the portions looked really small. The noodles were all stuck together with no mix between crispy and soft. The big thing I noticed was that the shrimp were undercooked and ones that resembled food court standards.

Beef Rice Noodles

Tried: April 22, 2011

The competition for Beef Rice Noodles in Montreal is wide open. I had pretty good ones in many different places and this one became a major player in the race. The noodle lengths are just right. The bites are light and the mix of ingredients fit really well.
