Town Square

Blessings

Original post made by John, Amador Estates, on Apr 18, 2009

Anyone know when Blessings will actually reopen? Right next to UNCLE Credit Union, near old location on Santa Rita, the sign has been posted for over a month. Much smaller but menu looks very similar. Looking forward to going back to my standard "to go" place in town.

I spoke to the owner and she mentioned April 15th. Since that date has come and gone, perhaps they will open in the next couple of weeks. She is hoping her loyal customers will return. I know we will.

I have transitioned over to Hunan Chef Wong and like that they deliver. Orange chicken, Mongolian Beef, Chow Mien, fried rice, egg rolls (my favorites) are all fantastic but with Blessings back in the picture it will be a time of great debate for me. I always was waiting for blessings to fire up that circular Mongolian BBQ skillet thing and it just sat there. They spent the money and it wasn't used for years. I hope there business decision making is better in the future.

True Stacey...
Mongolian barbecue (Chinese: ɹſ; pinyin: Mngg koru) is a restaurant style of stir frying meats and vegetables over a large, round, solid iron griddle that is as large as 2.5 m in diameter and can cook at temperatures as high as 300 C or 572 F. Originally from Taiwan, it is neither Mongolian nor barbecue.
