Name:Chows Restaurant - Dorval, QC, Canada - Open for business!
Street:335 Avenue Dorval
City:Dorval, Quebec (Suburb of Montreal)
This little place has been a fixture in my hometown for over 50 years. Nothing fancy, but they have a decent little buffet for $6.50 and great Chinese takeout! Lots of Tiki-goodness inside including bamboo walls, Polynesian textiles, and beautiful, ornate Polynesian style hanging lamps. I asked one of the waiters about the light fixtures and he said they came from a company that doesn't exist anymore. The pictures are blurry and don't do them justice. They really are glowing works of art with bits of colored glass, shells, wicker and bamboo.
These photos were taken at noon on a winter day so the lighting isn't as nice and cozy as it would be at night. I LOVE the Tiki door handle leading into the restaurant. You have to grab it by the mouth to pull the door open, something my friend distinctly remembers doing as a kid.
