It’s second nature for Asian people to take over ordering the food in Asian restaurants. It’s both experience and control issues. In any case, I was rather pleased that my pals turned over the ordering to me at Fortune Village. I went with grandmother’s tofu, a combination omelette, and the clear favourite of the evening, deep-fried eggplant slices in a black bean sauce. We also ordered a salt and pepper pork chop dish and a spicy lamb, neither of which were standouts.
Overall, the food is tasty and appealing, the service efficient, and it’s a great choice for Cantonese food. I wasn’t in the photo-taking mood though! It was Glenn’s birthday and Simon, the owner, came out and had us pose with a photo of a sword (I won’t embarrass us by reposting the photo), presented Glenn with a photo magnet and then complimentary ice cream all around (with a larger portion for the birthday boy). It was a lovely and generous gesture.
