Eatery relocating

One of downtown Red Deer’s longest serving restaurants is heading south.

One of downtown Red Deer’s longest serving restaurants is heading south.

Sam Wong, who operates Monsieur Wong’s at 5004 48th St., plans to combine the restaurant with Sam’s Cafe South — another restaurant he owns at 1927 50th Ave.

He said his long-term intention is to find a new location for Monsieur Wong’s.

“We’ve actually been looking around for a new location for a while, but we haven’t found one yet. Hopefully we will find one soon.”

In the meantime, said Wong, Monsieur Wong’s will continue to operate with its existing menu and phone number at Sam’s Cafe South.

“Everything will be exactly the same.”

Sam’s Cafe South will also carry on.

“We will have to expand and remodel our kitchen so we will have two kitchens in one,” said Wong.

He expects to move Monsieur Wong’s to Sam’s Cafe South by the end of May or early June.

“Hopefully with no interruption.”

Wong said he decided to move away from the downtown so that he can set up at a location with more activity.

He said Monsieur Wong’s new permanent site will probably be on the city’s south side.

Monsieur Wong’s opened in 1981 and has operated at the same location ever since. The lounge in the restaurant operates as JoJo’s.

Wong’s other local businesses include Sam’s Cafe North and Tiffany’s Steak House and Lounge.
