What to eat for lunch? What to eat??? Not a whole lot to choose from nearby. I've gone to most of the local restaurants more than 2 times already. I need a change. Surfing Urbanspoon pointed me in the direction of Mr. G's Fast Food. Why? Well, while scrolling through the list of Surrey restaurants, it was the most interesting name. Yah, it was completely random. Mr. G reminds me of the character that Eddie Murphy placed in Holy Man. I wonder if this visit to Mr. G will be enlightening? I would settle for somewhat tasty and cheap. It is indeed cheap, there are no items over $6.00.
I decided to try out 2 items with the first being the Chicken Wrap. Okay now. If you look at the picture, what does the meat look like to you? Chicken? If you thought that, you must have your eyes checked because it sure looks like bacon right? Well, it is indeed chicken. WTF??? I don't know about you; but you have to overcook chicken pretty badly to make it look like bacon. In fact, you'd probably have to fry it a couple times over to achieve such an effect. Trying to chew it was akin to eating the "Ton-Can't-Chew" at Kawawa. The good news was that the veggies were fresh and the mix of Tzatzki and honey mustard (at the suggestion of the nice guy behind the counter) tasted quite good.
Whereas the wrap was disappointing, the Fried Chicken was surprising. It's not much to look at and the batter was a bit thick; however, the chicken was moist, tender and juicy. I was quite shocked as to how tasty the chicken turned out to be. Despite being packaged French fries, they were pretty darn good as well. I think there was a starch coating on them and they were very crispy. Nice an potatoey on the inside too. There was one problem. A strange aftertaste, probably from the starch, occurred after eating the fries. Oh well, I shouldn't expect much, since Mr. G's is merely a place where you can grab a quick, cheap lunch. But honestly, what the heck was up with that chicken wrap? Could it be that they messed up that day? I'm not sure, maybe I'll give it another go to see if that was the case.
- It's cheap
- Food is made-to-order (except for the "chicken meat")
- It's relatively fast
- Awful chicken meat for the wrap
- Limited parking
