“Family Restaurant” Reality Series Features Quon Family

Coming soon to WE tv (and the U.S. market) is a new unscripted show, Family Restaurant, which features the Quon family and their daily trials and tribulations behind running their family-owned restaurant, the Lingnan. The restaurant, located in Edmonton, Alberta, has been serving Cantonese and Szechuan cuisine since 1947.

The Quons consist of Mom Amy, described as “the doting control freak,” her “long-suffering husband” Kinman, number one son Miles, and his two “ne’er-do-well siblings” Mandy and Marty. The family runs their two popular Chinese eateries: an elegant, old-world Mandarin dining room as well as a Chinese chicken-themed fast food lunch counter.

Of course, a reality show about running a family restaurant business doesn’t get interesting until we get to know the “family” part of the restaurant, so expect generational conflicts between the bossy matriarch and the kids, including Mrs. Quon’s thoughts about her children dating outside of their race and more. By most accounts, the show is funny, filled with drama and that the Quons come off as a very “loveable” family.

This show isn’t new to Canadians; three seasons of Family Restaurant already aired on Food Network Canada

About jozjozjoz

jozjozjoz is a taiwanese-american gal who lives and blogs underneath the hollywood sign and who doesn’t clean her fishtank unless the fish starts to do the backstroke. she is also able to leap tall buildings in a single bound, but cannot stop from bumping into door handles, cabinet doors, and anything else that protrudes or has a sharp edge. she does not run with scissors for this same reason. she can pet the fur off a dog but don’t ask her to go anywhere near a horse. or a moth. or a roach. her dealings with L.A.’s finest (aka the parking violations department) are legend, as are her giant sneezes. Other than the two too many joz’s, jozjozjoz is a perfectly normal, relatively sane individual who defies the odds, reaches for the stars, and carries moonbeams home in a jar. She’d rather be a fish… but not in her own dirty fishtank. http://www.jozjozjoz.com
