I am quite impressed by the number of Chinese restaurants in a small town like Saskatoon. Of course, some are good and some are just..mehh….Summer Palace is one of the better ones which I only found out recently from my Chinese friend. Apparently, her friends seem to like this place alot (which means….the food is probably good right?) Anyways, since then I've visited here twice; so I'm combining both visits in this blog!
During my first visit with Bambi ( my Chinese friend), we headed here after our day trip to Moose Jaw. Good thing was this restaurant closes late (9.30pm) since most restaurants (apart from bars) closes early in Saskatoon @__@. She recommended some of the good dishes she had before ; Kung Pao Chicken with peanuts which is spicy stir-fry chicken with peanuts and dried chilli with green onion as garnishing. The thick sauce used to cook this dish basically consist of soy, sesame and dried chilli. This dish was pretty tasty; it has the 'wok-hei' where most westernized Chinese restaurants lack. Taste awesomely good with rice. In Malaysia, the Chinese restaurants cook this dish with cashew nuts rather than peanuts and with lots of dried chilli.
