It says "Chinese and Spanish Food". Wow..Chinese AND Spanish food? So, is it a Chinese restaurant that sells Spanish food or the other way around? I thought that it was a pretty funny combination.
Check out their menu. One side of it was the usual Chinese take out food like General Tsaos, Sweet Sour Chicken...the usual. The other side was the usual Spanish take out food! Yeah, beans, rice, fried plantains...
Looking for something different, we decided to try their special on the Spanish side of the menu. Only $12.00 for one whole roast chicken, large black bean rice and large fries. Sounds good to me. There was even a coupon for a free can of Coke or Pepsi when we ordered $10.00 or more.
The delivery was pretty fast too. It arrived in less than half an hour after we placed the order. Three boxes of steaming hot food and two chilled cans of Coke. The delivery guy was also really nice and polite, a cute little old Chinese man. Hahaha.
Now the most important part. How was the food? Firstly, they were really generous with the portions. I think that $12 combo was enough to feed at least 4 people. They really piled on the rice and fries. Unlike most places, the fries managed to stay warm and crispy. We expected to get soggy fries but was pleasantly surprised. It's the first time I've tried Black Bean Rice so I cannot say if it's good or not compared to other places. However, I really liked the taste. The main highlight was the roast chicken. It was really really good. It somewhat reminded me of the kind roast chicken I would get back home in Malaysia. The chili sauce was good too, it was definitely Spanish but had this Asian kick too it. It's hard to explain :P
It was a good meal. In fact, we had leftovers for my lunch and also dinner for the two of us the next day! For $14.79, it wasn't bad at all. I'll definitely order from Goody Restaurant again the next time we feel like having roast chicken delivered to the home!
