Gourmet of China was one of the best Chinese food restaurants in Tucson, AZ. Many people were sad to see the restaurant close down after so many years of birthday parties, anniversaries, or just a meal with a friend. Many had grown to know the family that ran the restaurant, as well as watch their kids grow up into young adults. There are three main things that made Gourmet of China one of the best restaurants in town. Quality of the service and atmosphere, the food, and most importantly, the cost.
The cost was never an issue for the quality of food that was served. No one would ever be disappointed over the price and food combined. What someone paid for included all that and more each time they walked in! For large groups, the price was also affordable. Gourmet of China was one of the least expensive Chinese food restaurants in town, yet their food was far from cheap in quality.

They had some of the best Orange Chicken, Sweet and Sour Pork, Wonton Soup and other traditional Chinese foods. Parents enjoyed these choices, as well as exotic foods such as crab, octopus and squid. The kids absolutely loved their selections of jello, fruit and ice cream! Those who were looking to try something new were never disappointed at Gourmet of China as The cooks regularly added tasty selections to their menu. The food and the cost made people comfortable, Yet it would not have been complete as a top choice restaurant without considering King 2
the quality of the restaurant, it’s people, and cleanliness.
Their restrooms were always kept clean, the plates and other dishes were always clean, and with all that, one could assume and know for a fact that the kitchen was just as clean. Never would a person find a dirty piece of silverware or dish. If a dish was dropped or broken in any way, help and clean-up would come at once.
With all these qualities, it was no wonder that Gourmet of China was a huge favorite not only to Tucson residents, but even to many here in Sierra Vista, AZ. It was sad to see it go, but hopefully there will be another Gourmet of China one of these days. Their food, service and quality will be hard to beat or even compare, for future restaurants.
