Restaurant Review: Lunch at the “Double Happiness” Chinese Restaurant in Wilmington

I do not usually write restaurant reviews, but I had a great lunch last week at the “Double Happiness” Chinese Restaurant in Wilmington.

I was in Wilmington for the 2019 PCA/ACA South Region Conference (see my presentation post linked here). I was getting tired of conference snacks, and I had a hankering for some good Chinese food. Not a buffet — I wanted a sit-down meal. I searched Google, and saw that the Double Happiness restaurant was well-reviewed. Please visit their website linked here:

The business has two restaurant locations in Wilmington. I went to the one on Wrightsville Road. It was not too crowded at the time, but I arrived there just after it opened for lunch. As you can see from their website, they have a lot of great artwork within. Here are some photos posted to Google linked here. I even took a photo of the pretty menu cover!

Indeed, the menu is expressive of “double happiness”. I would have liked to have kept the menu through the whole meal, just to look at it.

I started off lunch with some Wonton Soup:

Next up, a double dose of happiness continues with double spring rolls:

The main dish was Beef with Broccoli, and I chose the brown rice:

I did not choose any desert, but I ate the fortune cookie, then saved the mint for later:

What was the fortune from the fortune cookie you ask?

Lunch was great. I would like to return sometime for a full dinner. Maybe next time I can get someone to drive me so I can drink a beer or two with dinner!
