The journey of an Edmonton woman eating her way through the city at events, festivals, restaurants, and other gatherings.

One of the few restaurants in the Chinatown area I had not yet tried was All Happy. I had supper there with a co-worker a few weeks ago. My friend ordered the garlic fried rice. I tried a little and it lived up to its name. Tiny bits of fried garlic were in every bite. It was too much for me, but she really liked it.
I definitely needed something to drink at this point, so I had the Hong Kong iced tea. It was strong and milky, just as it should have been.
I had to try the green onion cake, and was not disappointed. It was crunchy and satisfying.
My main course was the beef chow fun. This is a beef stir fry with thick rice noodles and bean sprouts. It had a very deep, meaty flavour although the beef was not of the greatest quality. The portion size was very large and I was quite full after. However, a short while later, despite the name of the restaurant, I wasn't very happy. My unhappiness lingered into the next day. If I do visit again, I think I would make a different menu choice and eat less.
