The only other time I had dined at Jimmy Wan’s was back in 2008 so on one cold Saturday when we didn’t feel like venturing too far from home (i.e. eat and do some shopping in suburbia), I came up with the idea to head to Jimmy Wan’s for lunch. Serving up a vast array of Pan-Asian favorites, it’s definitely one of the classiest Asian restaurants you’ll ever encounter, especially one that is located in a non-city setting.
In addition to being a more classy venue, it’s also pricier than some other area Asian restaurants, but luckily they offer a pretty great lunch menu which unlike some places is available daily, not just Monday-Friday. A host of options are available from between $9-$16 (menu selections are divided into land, sea, sky, sushi, and vegetarian) and these consist of your entree selection along with a choice of soup (sweet and sour, wonton, egg drop, or miso, which costs slightly extra).
Since they offer dim sum selections, I had us split an order of the Steamed Barbecue Pork Buns ($6) which I had always wanted to try (and also make myself). These were delicious and so made me yearn for a trip to Hong Kong.
As for soups, I ended up going with the miso soup while D opted for the wonton. Miso soup is one of the few things I don’t mind eating tofu in (it tastes pretty good in hot, flavorful broth).
For my entree I selected the Chicken with Green Beans ($11). The chicken was okay (it was cut very thin, personally I like thicker pieces of meat), but I liked the taste of the sauce the beans and chicken came in.
D chose a perennial favorite of his, Mongolian Beef ($12). I brought mine home as I wasn’t able to finish it all, but his was devoured. All entrees also come with your choice of either white or brown rice.
I think the lunch special Jimmy Wan’s offers is a phenomenal deal, especially since it’s available on the weekend too and is not just for the office workers. And the fact that they offer more than just fried rice and lo mein with their dim sum items is an added bonus. It’s nice when stereotypical ethnic cuisine branches more for the benefit of its diners.
