Finding the Honeymoon Café amongst all the restaurants on Argyle Street is hard, but finding a reason to eat there is much easier. I strolled into this nook right before the lunch hour and when I sat down I was wondering why I wanted to stay at a place like this. The ambience is as drab as your local area clinic, with a 1970 cabin rustic feel. It seemed like the break room for employees of a much larger Chinese restaurant.
In the end I did decide to stay and found exactly what I needed to stay, a $4.00 lunch special menu. I figure I won’t have to risk too much to give it a try. The menu was filled with sweet and sours, salty and spicy, and more noodles than Chef Boyardee. The options were plentiful, I half expected slop to arrive on my plate, but when my order of salt and pepper fillet arrived, I was surprised at the crunchy outside and the soft flaky center inside. This was actually good and I took a second to take in the scene of the restaurant, the place had filled up and people were ordering from the non-lunch special menu. An Asian person passing up deals for food is no joke. Either they are not really Asian or yes, the food has to be that good.
So if you want quality cheap eats for lunch then you should hit this place up.
