Review: Late Lunch at The Boss

by gigi on March 9, 2009

Jenkins and I were doing some grocery shopping in Chinatown one day and stopped at The Boss for a late lunch. The Boss is a Hong Kong-style restaurant but also has a bakery in front. Although I believe this Chinatown location is the original one, there is also another located in Metrotown.


We had decided to eat later in order to avoid the lunch rush so by the time we were seated, it was after 2PM and we were able to take advantage of their afternoon meal specials which are available from 2-5PM daily.

Jenkins and I both took advantage of the afternoon specials, which came with our choice of a hot drink. I picked the hot almond tea and Jenkins went for the regular hot tea with lemon.


I decided to have the satay beef noodles in soup, which was a great deal at $5.50. The satay sauce was drizzled on top of the soup base, making the soup thicker than the broth that I was usually accustomed to. The noodles were quite tasty but I would have liked for there to be more beef slices. Because of the abundance of noodles, this noodle soup was actually quite filling.


Jenkins went with the standard baked spaghetti with pork chop. In our rush to dig into our dishes, I forgot to take a picture of Jenkins’ dish. :) The baked spaghetti was a bit small, but was actually the perfect meal size for lunch. This was also $5.50 and included a hot drink.

I wouldn’t say that the lunch specials at The Boss are the greatest, but the value is definitely there and there is always a good variety of choices. The next time I’m in Chinatown around lunch time though, I’ll probably check out some of the other restaurants first before going back to The Boss. :)
