One of Cloverdale's best original Chinese restaraunts. Small little mom and pop cafe ran by a very friendly Asian couple that has great lunch specials.
Whenever we are feeling Chinese food we give Ken's a call for takeout! The food is always hot, fresh and tasty, my fiance loves that he can get combo meals for one (I'm a vegetarian, so am not much fun in the sharing department!) Their chow mein is awesome, great spring rolls and Ken and his wife are so sweet and friendly. As mentioned in the previous review, the formica countertops and '60's style bar stools all add to the retro feel of this little restaurant. Would definetly reccommend Ken's Cafe for authentic Chinese cuisine and the warm, friendly service!
One of my fellow firefighters asked me if I wanted to come with him to Ken's Cafe for lunch and was unaware that this place even existed. You walk into the place and I thought it was great. 1960's style bar stools with the aqua green counter, 7Up billboard telling you of the specials from who knows when and a retro style soda fountain.
The smell of frying and cooking fills the cafe (broken exhaust fan? I don't know) and when you sit at the counter you can take a peek into the cooking area where I'm assuming Ken, is cooking like a maniac. This guy is a machine as he fires up all of these orders on this "super wok" that he uses.
There are only two people who work inside the restaraunt (Ken and his wife) and it is always busy with the Cloverdale townsfolk stopping by for a bite to eat. Occationally I see the film crews from movies chowing down as well.
Lunch specials are good and cheap ranging from $4.50 to $6.50 and you get huge portions regardless if it's dine in or take out. Try the ginger beef, nice and spicy.
