Located conveniently along 1925 Albert Street, this restaurant is very easy to spot. I've been here thrice and it has always been at lunch time. And always when we pick up my Aunt from work. This is her favourite restaurant, I can tell.
The moment I got out of the car, I can already smell MSG! Nobody has proven that MSG is bad though. So you need not worry. Hahahaha!
Menu looks classic in leather-ish design. I wonder how many more restaurants in Regina have the same menu casing.
Aunt Marilou is one of the nicest person I've met in Regina but we'll see how she'll react when she learns that I posted a photo of her on my blog without make up on her birthday. Shelley, her youngest daughter knows what to order already. She said, "Ma, I want 102!" With that she meant, Boneless Pork.
Honestly, this restaurant does not have the best interiors. I think it has been like this since it started.
But you'll wonder because by 12 noon, it was already full even with their not-so-friendly staff. I was already thinking that food must be good. I just wished they could have been nicer.
Their spring rolls are the best. I can't stop raving about it!
Now, that's 102! I'm usually good with one serving of the meat. Its already called gluttony if I consume the other slice. I do know though that I can still finish another slice.
Sweet and sour pork was a total disappointment. Coated with a thick layer of dough, I hardly recognized the meat inside or was there meat inside? I can't tell!
I only finished 1/4 of the serving and brought everything home. They don't care about plating and from the looks of it, those who came for lunch did not bother to request for it anyway. I just always have to remind myself that this restaurant does not need those because their food sells anyway.
Their noodles, whatever kind it was, was just okay.
Topic for lunch was the Cousin Forever Christmas Dinner 2014, how it feels like to be going home to the Philippines and the orders of other customers from the other tables. Hahahahaha!
Overall, the experience at Viet Trung Garden was good. The guy who was a little rude about my fried rice choices was a little nicer the second time he came back. I was just trying to think that his tone was like that because he was not a native English speaker.
Please don't order the Sweet and Sour Pork, it was really a traumatic experience ordering that. Still, 102 is the best. Boneless Pork, for the win!
I'll definitely comeback. Maybe I'll find some dish that I've never tried that I may really like. This lunch is not about me before I forget. This is Aunt Marilou's birthday celebration and what matters most is she's happy.
Before I go, I want you to see my fortune cookie.
I don't know who I'll have to listen to to come out ahead. But yah, hopefully it happens. Oh these fortune cookies!
