Deep in the heart of Chinatown, there is a hole in the wall restaurant called Gain Wah. Once I stepped inside, it felt like I was transported back into the 90s, or perhaps even before then. At first I was a bit skeptical coming here since it was pretty empty. Mags brought me here for lunch since she saw some decent reviews online. Since I’m always up for an adventure, I had to come here.
Their menu is quite typical of a Chinese Cafe, but they also have roast BBQ here too if you just want a bunch of meat and rice.
Century Egg Congee with Pork ($4.25) was comforting. I really love congee, so it really hit the spot. For the price, it was really good. There was a good amount of ingredients in it too.
Duck Leg with Noodle in Soup ($4.25) this has a good amount of duck! Look at that leg!
Lunch for 2 for under $10 is pretty awesome. It is cash only, so make sure you get some before coming here. I was quite impressed, so I’ll be back again. Staff are friendly and service is pretty quick.
