Peking Peking Riverbend – Calgary, Alberta

I wanted to eat some “Western Chinese Food” this one evening and we ventured to Peking Peking Riverbend that’s just off of 18th Street and Glenmore Trail. It’s a little location and it looks like they do a buffet as well.

We started by ordering a Wor Wonton as it’s something I’ve made recently myself and I wanted to eat it again – without making it! This wor wonton had noodles in it which is weird as it’s not a wor wonton noodle soup that we ordered (so we thought), but it’s okay. The wontons were flavourful, but I’m not sure what flavours they were. The soup lacked a little bit of salt, but it’s an easy fix by adding some soy sauce!

We then ordered a plate of Fried Noodles with Beef & Vegetables which came in a large plate. It tasted really good, but it was quite greasy. The beef was really tender and almost a bit too tender, but it was good. This plate was so large we even got to bring some home for the following day – but the grease settles which made the bottom not so good.

Overall, the food was alright. It wasn’t what I had expected or wanted, but it must be because they are from a different area as their cooking techniques are quite different from what I’m use to. The prices was average and so was the food.
