RED ANT Restaurant

by on Apr.23, 2009, under Eating Food

Last week, after a long a hard discussion about where to go for lunch, we decided to go to that mall on a hill near 16th and Leslie and decide on a place there (Yes that one which is supposedly haunted LOL). We got there and one restaurant caught our attn, we didn’t really feel like chinese food, but chinese-nized western food a.k.a hk cafe style. It was called Red Ant Restaurant. I found the name funny, why would you name a restaurant ‘Red Ant’. Maybe its to continue the theme of naming restaurants after insects much like the ‘Firefly’ restaurant at FMP.

Anyhow, we looked at the menu, the prices were quite good! The lunch special menu was around $6 to $10. Comes with the Entree, Soup and Drink and SEASONAL FRUITS O BOY. The food was pretty good, the soup was ok. What surprised us what the lenght the went to to make the drink cold. See normal people would put ice INSIDE the drink. Not here they didn’t, they got a bowl, dumped some crushed ice in it, and stuck the cup into the ice! What the hell?! (I regret not taking a picture of it)

Below you will see a gallary of pictures including the actual food. Theres Baked Pork Chop rice, Japanese Curry Beef, and some chicken Udon thing.

I don’t know how much longer this place will survive, the previous restaurant that occupied that unit don’t tend to last very long. I guess we will have to wait and see.

Edit: Ok so apparently theres a franchise in Hong Kong also called Red Ant Restaurant. I have a feeling this is just a fake knock off.
