On a Friday a couple of weeks ago, Wimbledon residents were brought some good luck on the unluckiest day of the year - Friday the 13th! - with the launch of one local restaurant’s Good Luck Chinese Food Festival and some very lucky fortune cookies - of which the top cash prize remains unclaimed!
To launch their Good Luck Chinese Food Festival on Friday 13th, Jimmy’s World Grill & Bar had traditional Geisha girls handing out over 1,000 lucky fortune cookies on The Broadway and Wimbledon Station. All of the cookies contained a prize, from free meals to money off, plus one lucky cookie contained a £1,000 cash prize.
Restaurant Manager Jitender Chauhan said “On Friday and over the weekend we have had many members of the public come in to the restaurant to redeem their prizes, but we have had no one come forward to claim the £1,000 prize. We want to remind everyone who picked up a cookie, and may still have it on their person unopened, to open their cookie and check if they are the winner”.
Diners on the day also enjoyed entertainment from Leo’s Chinese Kung Fu Institute who performed short demonstrations of traditional Chinese Kung Fu.
The restaurant's Chinese Festival will run until October 15, where Jimmy’s, which offers over 100 worldwide dishes for one price, will be serving up a selection of traditional Chinese meals including starters from Dim Sum to Barbeque Pork Ribs to Salt and Pepper Vegetables, plus main dishes including: Kung Po Chicken, Vegetable Manchurian, Fish Sweet & Sour and Chicken in Thai Red Curry.
Diners can also have their favourite Chinese dish cooked to their taste by the restaurant's Head Chef Joe Quyen at one of the live stations!
