This is one of the strangest Second Cup locations I’ve ever been to. It has shorter hours than most Second Cup, but the environment inside is much different as it is quite spacious, with comfortable seating, free wi-fi, and even a fire place which really sets the mood during our nasty winter months.
I don’t normally go to this location, since it’s not the one most convenient for me, but I found myself here one evening, and ordered my favourite Chai Tea Latte and it was so flavourful, it really ranks in the top 3 I’ve had!

Well, we just got home from a short but GREAT holiday, and I wanted noodle soup… so, we went to Chi Lan as it’s close to home, and delicious!
Originally, I wanted something with a more subtle taste, but when I picked up the menu, I soon realized I was craving for spice!
We ordered a Bun Bo Hue and Hot Wings, and both was as mentioned, spicy! The wings were perfectly fried, and then tossed in a hot sauce. The skin was fried to perfection, with a nice crunch. I asked for the Bun Bo Hue with rice noodles, as it’s easier to eat! I do enjoy the round noodles they usually use, but it splashes the soup all over me… and the splatter look wasn’t what I wanted.
After eating the wings, the Bun Bo Hue wasn’t spicy, and I was able to taste the flavor of it, and it’s subtle hint of sweetness. It was really good!
At the end of the night, it was a great dinner! It’s definitely my go to noodle place! 🙂 Chi Lan is close to home, with reasonable prices and never a disappointment! Be sure to visit them yourself!
