Last week, long-running Orchid Chinese Cuisine quietly shut its doors. In its place, Hong Kong Jade Restaurant opened. The same corporation that owns Hong Kong Jade Buffet & Lounge in Plattsburgh is responsible for the new eatery, says manager Ken Chan.
Unlike Orchid, Hong Kong Jade offers more than all-you-can-eat Americanized Chinese food, though there is plenty of that. At press time, the full menu was not yet available, but, according to Chan, some time this week hibachi tables will arrive to add Japanese flair to the large restaurant. There are also Nipponese noodle soups and Thai stir-fries. For the kids and young-at-heart, a cotton-candy machine sends diners off with a fun, fluffy adieu.
Hong Kong Jade Restaurant, 5 Market Street, South Burlington, 658-3626
Justin Turcotte: Gotta love our little food Mecca!
Roy: Meh. They can't compare to Red Hen and dealing with Hunt is often not worth the trouble.
Tammy Goughnour: This will be AWESOME!! Their pastry is out of this world!!
Old Vermonter: Amazing they lasted so long with such terrible business acumem
Bryan Bouchard: It wasn't that good before. Of they didn't reopen it wouldn't be a great loss to the Burlington…
