Lunch at White Orchid Restaurant (Richmond Hill, Ontario)

4:20:00 PM

I recalled reading from a Globe and Mail article about a list of suggested Hwy 7 restaurants to visit for Chinese food. I was naturally curious because I have been working in the area for years. White Orchid was a restaurant that I have never visited. In the previous placeholder, there was a restaurant called something "Delicious" which opened only for 2 hours a day at lunch. Many of my colleagues thought that this restaurant was operating a gambling den in the background.

For this visit, I rounded up a group of foodies and decided to try out this place.

The decor inside the restaurant was very clean and elegant with white.  It was very unfortunate that restaurant door leaked a lot of cold air in towards our seats.

The server was semi busy at times. Most of the staff and patrons spoke Cantonese. There was wifi available (use phone number).

The Globe article commented a lot about the Singapore Chicken Rice dish. It was a no brainer to get this dish.  I got a good amount of chicken (with a lot of bones), one bowl of chicken infuse rice. The staff always provided 3 different dipping sauces for the chicken (ginger onion, sweet chili, sweet vinegar) and 1 bowl of chicken stock. This meal combo also came with a soy drink.

Overall, the meal was above average. I had worst versions of this dish from Cantonese cafe restaurants in the area (e.g. Golden Pheonix). My favourite restaurant for this dish was at Restoran Malaysia. I would need to revisit for a 1 to 1 comparison again (it has been so long).

Would I come back for this dish? Yes.
