Kylin Chinese Restaurant , 68 Harvey Street, Hr. Grace, NL

Eight Chinese Restaurants in 20 minutes in Conception Bay North. They all have their good points, and people have selected their go to establishments for quite some time.  Kylin is a relative new kid on the block.  They stated as Great Wall Chinese Restaurant in Spaniard’s Bay but were disappointed with their landlord so moved to my home town, Hr. Grace. The new setup offers a buffet as well as quick lunch offerings. No other Chinese restaurant is offering five dollar boxes of goodness. It is good, flavourful and well worth the money!!
I am also a huge fan of Hot and Sour Soup….Kylin’s is good, not the kind I am use too but good.  I did request to have the soup thickened when I placed my order and they were happy to oblige . I have a blog dedicated to some of the best  Hot and Soup in the province.  If you are a lover of good hot and sour soup have a look at my ever growing list. https://justafoodie.wordpress.com/2016/09/17/in-search-of-the-best-hot-and-soup-across-the-island-portion-of-newfoundland-and-Labrador/

A small but cozy room, well laid out, I personally liked the chairs. Pictures of some of the food offerings on the wall were interesting and gave you some insight into their menu.

I visited on two occasions, once to eat in and one to take out. I ordered the 5.00 lunch time special, as you can see above, that’s plenty of food value there. The garlic ribs were fall of the bone tender, chicken balls not too crisp and white meat, egg roll hand made and packed with flavour.

My take out box did not disappoint either. The chow mein was tasty with fresh peppers , onions, celery and cabbage, the chicken was also cooked nicely.

One last note, on my second visit, when it was time to pay for my takeout she had issues with her debit machine. Instead of asking me to go to the nearest ATM to get money, she gave me the order and stated she saw me there before and know I will be back so do not worry about paying. How cool is that….and guess what I will be back!!
