of Dinner and a Movie Mondays
Almond Cookies on the Planet
Nestled amidst all
the Chinese buffets with their endless variety of
edible comforts lies a great little Village Inn in Warren. This
is no ordinary
family-run eatery. They have been in business for 30 years and
obvious why they have built up such a steady and loyal clientele.
Judy, Helen, Henry
and even 4-year-old Dominic Gee serve you graciously in a very
relaxed atmosphere and always remember you when you return.
I must admit that I love the variation and selections in buffets,
but I believe Chinese food is meant to be tasted, savored, and
above all, fresh! The
Inn provides all this and more.
To begin with, your
order is tailored to you as an individual, your entrée
is prepared in an amazingly short span of time without nuking!
You choose which veggies you want, low sodium or starch, no
MSG, amount of spiciness, or if you wish, tell them what you
like (in my case seafood) and they will make you a dish that’s
not even on the menu.
The shrimp lo mien
couldn’t have been tastier. This adjective would also
apply to the cashew chicken and the How Yu Steak my dining companions
ordered. Sauces are freshly made, as are all the entrees, soups,
even dinner rolls.
Portions are large;
every time I have visited there, folk who dine in always have
leftovers. There are some great specials with just as much quality
and quantity. There is American food for fussy kids, special
dishes for fussy vegetarians and beer and wine for fussy adults.
The Gees also do
take out, delivery and catering. Give them a buzz at (586) 574-1560.
This sounds almost too good to be true, yes? Yet in the year
that I have resided here I have at last found my Chinese food
To quote little Dominic
as he hands you egg rolls, chopsticks, the bill, “Enjoy!“
P.S. They really do have the best homemade almond cookies on
