Canton Chinese Restaurant

Decided to stop by Queanbeyan for a meal on a Saturday night and we ended up dining in Canton Chinese Restaurant (232 Crawford Street, Queanbeyan - (02)6297 5246) upon the recommendation of a friend whose dad is the head chef. It's a little family restaurant that specializes in Singaporean, Malaysian and Chinese cuisine and to my amazement it's been around for more than 27 years! The petit restaurant has simple Chinese paintings and colourful lanterns as decorations which makes the restaurant quite cute. In addition to that, the staff is really friendly and courteous which makes the overall atmosphere quite pleasant.
We ordered a Seafood Laksa and a Tofu Goreng. The laksa was nice and the amount of seafood in it was quite generous; it contained mussels, squid, fish, prawns and fish balls - the only criticism was that the Laksa wasn't salty enough.

I ordered the Tofu Goreng because it seemed different and also because i've never had this dish before. I quite liked the dish because the tofu was beautifully crispy and golden on the outside and silky on the inside. Eating the tofu with the peanut sauce, cucumber and snowpeas was very nice indeed. I think i had almost 3 bowls of rice...the sauce it's very addictive, i must say.

To finish our meal we ordered a Toblerone Cheesecake. The Toblerone taste was subtle but nice, the cheesecake had a soft texture and it wasn't too sweet -which is how i like my cheesecake.

Bookings are recommended as the restaurant is quite small. They also have the option of take-away or home delivery, if you prefer.
