CORNWALL Ontario – In these days of trendiness and pushing the limits its comforting to see an old haunt from the past still running. Jack Lee’s in Cornwall Ontario still serves what we Gaijin refer to as Chinese Food. Egg Rolls, Won Ton Soup, Pork Spare Ribs soaking in a garlic soy sauce, fried rice, chop suey, and all of the comfort foods of yesteryear.
Jack Lee’s is the last Traditional Old School restaurant left in the area. Walking in is almost walking back in time to 1966 when it first opened.
Alas all things change and the place is for sale as the family that have been there is looking at their own futures. Hopefully another family will take over and continue the tradition for the restaurant in the downtown core of Cornwall.
In the mean while I still have a place to walk to when I have a craving for their old school yummy mini egg rolls!
