In search for a great take out place with Chinese Food for lazy cold winter days, I found myself trying Douglas Peking Express in Douglas Glen in Southeast Calgary. The food was better than the Chinese take out place in McKenzie Towne, so I would go the extra distance for Chinese food here.
We didn’t do take out this time, as we wanted to try out the Chinese experience. They were decent! The neat thing was, there was people who continually came in to either place take out orders or pick up their orders! It gave me great confidence that the food was good!
We ordered fried rice and Shanghai noodles, which are 2 of our favourites! And, needless to say, we did like the quality of food here. The lunch menu that we saw seemed very attractive as well – even though we haven’t had a chance to try it out yet.

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!
