Hong Hing Chinese Restaurant

Hong Hing restaurant on Ellice Avenue, is a  Chinese restaurant of the type I was familiar with growing up. Lots of dishes featuring chop suey and chow mein. However, there are a few Szechuan dishes available on the menu, and even an eight item Dim Sum list.

Chicken Fingers Still Star – Mitzi’s

I don’t know about you, but when I think about Chicken Fingers, Mitzi’s is the first restaurant that comes to mind. However it’s been a few years since my last visit. So, I wonder is it just a memory are they still as good. Over the last couple of weeks I stopped there for a lunch a couple of more times.

I am happy to report that the Chicken Fingers are as good as I remember them. I’m also happy to report that if you stray from the Chicken Fingers things will be pretty good as well.
