Cafe Orient Ottawa
For those individuals who love quality, delicious Chinese food I have just the place for you. Located in Canada’s Capital City, Ottawa, Cafe Orient is a small, casual restaurant that is sure to impress.
Let’s start with the least impressive. This restaurant is very simply decorated and not fancy. However, everything is very clean and the bathrooms are very high tech. The toilets have a self cleaning seat and the faucets, soap dispensers and paper towel dispensers are all touch free.
The menu has a large variety of soups, meat and seafood dishes, noodles and rice. It is Hong Kong style, however it also has some Canadian favourites. There is also an assortment of teas and snack foods. My favourite snack food is the French toast, the best you’ll ever have! As for tea, the milk tea is a delicious authentic Hong Kong favourite, that will keep you awake for hours! They make fresh iced tea that is great during the summer months or after a spicy meal.
My favourite dinner dish is the spicy diced chicken. I also enjoy the cantonese chow mein, black bean vegetables and shrimp dishes. I keep returning and ordering my favourites, however I have been impressed by every dish I have tried.
If you go to the restaurant after 4 pm you can order from their special dinner menu which includes a large soup to share and unlimited steemed rice. I really enjoy the Hot and Sour soup, careful it is quite hot.
This restaurant is priced very well. Dishes on the special menu range from 9-13 dollars and include rice and soup. On the regular menu the prices vary from about 7-13 dollars as well. The teas are fairly priced from $ 1.50 and the French toast is $ 3.75.
The portions are very large, I have never left hungry and always with dinner for the following day.
This restaurant is located on Somerset in China Town. It closes early at 9 pm. If youre ever in the area give it a try you will not be dissapointed.
I give it 5 stars!
