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.

Reviewer: Eating With Gordon
Visit Date: January 2017
Food Rating: 3.5/5
Service Rating: 3/5

Atmosphere:
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.

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

Food:
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.
