I've heard of many people saying how much they like the food at Alvin's Garden. As for myself, I was a bit put off by the thought of how salty and spicy the dishes may be. Still, they were all my assumptions only. When Greeny mentioned about trying this place for its lunch special, my adventurous mind was cooperating that day.I actually been there once couple years ago. From what I remembered, the interior was quite different. I think it was because they went through a reno and expanded the restaurant as well. On the wall, we could see the awards that they have and the restaurant was almost full during weekday lunch time. That says something, right? =)
|Daily Soup - Preserved Vegetable and Tofu Soup (Complimentary) - 2/6|
|Spicy Flavoured Chicken ($5.98) - 4/6|
|Cumin Lamb and Vegetable on Rice ($7.98) - 6/6|
|Hunan Pickles and Pork on Rice ($6.98) - 5/6|
Honestly, I actually like the dishes that we had. Sure the Spicy Flavoured chicken was soaked in spicy oil, it wasn't overwhelmingly spicy. The flavour was quite strong for all dishes but I thought it was mainly because of the spices that were used. It was quite an enjoyable meal for sure.
