A great value at Hope Kee

We are pretty frequent customers of Hope Kee - the food is consistent, it's on our way home from work, plus we can grab groceries at Lee Lee after dinner without having to make another stop.

For dinner tonight, we tried something new and ordered the "Set Menu for Two" ($19.99). This includes the following:
  • Soup of the day
  • BBQ plate of the day
  • Sauteed beef and string beans
  • Sauteed fish and bok choy
Sorry - no pictures this time...

The soup of the day was a Chinese home-style soup with shredded beef, carrot, and some sort of melon (maybe cucumber?). The soup was excellent - we were expecting the soup of the day to be either hot and sour soup or egg drop soup, so this was a really nice surprise. I had two bowls of the soup and Patty had one. There was still enough soup for another bowl - the original portion was probably enough for four people.

The BBQ plate was a nice sized plate of bbq pork (char siu). Hope Kee's bbq pork is pretty good.

The fish and beef dishes were both decent. The beef was a bit chewy, but the beans were nice and fresh.

We finished about one quarter of each of the dishes and were completely stuffed. The leftovers should be more than enough for another meal for both of us.

Not a bad deal for $19.99!
