We were having family in Canmore for a family function, so we decided to scope out some Chinese restaurants to make sure they're worthy of bringing family there. One of our stops was the Peking Ginger
right on Bow Valley Trail. Parking wasn't too bad as it there was a little parking lot in front of the restaurant, which was a strip plaza.
Once we sat down, we ordered their fried rice, which they called Special Fried Rice
, and it was pretty standard. I am very bias to fried rice as I have yet to find a place that makes fried rice as good as my uncles... so, if it's "good", it's probably quite good. Although standard is standard, this fried rice was good! Simple things needs to be done perfectly.
The other dish we ordered, I quite enjoyed and Peking Ginger calls this dish Hot and Sour Soup with Sizzling Rice
and this was pretty unique. What they do is basically bring out sizzling hot rice on an iron board and dunk it in hot and sour soup. As odd as it sounds, I really enjoyed this dish!
We had a pretty enjoyable lunch at this location. It was quite quiet when we went, but the food and service was pretty good. There was parking outside, which worked for us. We only needed one spot anyway.
