The one thing that always seems certain when going for dim sum in Richmond is that parking is always a concern. Even when space is plentiful, you’re still at the mercy of bad drivers or people who insist on backing their minivans into parking stalls (I’m not against backing into a parking space per se but if it takes you more than 2 tries… maybe you shouldn’t bother).

I’ve never been to “New Awlins” before so I’m not sure if the food served at Bourbon St. Grill is representative of their cuisine. I’m guessing that there are aspects to this food court stall in Richmond Centre that probably relate but it’s like comparing the food at Manchu Wok to Chinese food. Read the rest of this entry
The Boathouse has a number of different locations but we usually head over to the Boathouse in New Westminster because it’s nearby. On this early March night, however, we decided to go on a journey to the Richmond location. I’ve known of this place before but I also knew that getting there (even with Google Maps) can be a bit tricky. As it turned out, we did have a bit of trouble finding the place but eventually arrived at our destination after some liberal interpretations of traffic bylaws (but that’s not too unusual for driving in Richmond).
The Cactus Club located at 5500 No. 3 Road is not exactly styled in the same manner as their other locations… as a matter of fact, it looks like this location hasn’t had a reno for quite some time.
For some reason, I always forget that there is an Earls located in Lansdowne Mall. Maybe it’s because the mall entrance to this restaurant is usually closed requiring you to enter from outside of the mall. I’m only bringing this up because when we came by to visit this Earls in February, we walked right by the outside entrance and spent a perplexing few moments trying to find the mall entrance. We eventually went back outside the mall and entered through their outside entrance and sat down to enjoy some comfortable eats. Read the rest of this entry
The last time we visited Empire Seafood Restaurant was almost a year ago for dim sum prior to their move (they’re still in the same complex just a few steps away from their old location). From what I recall, the dim sum was pretty good so we were looking forward to our Alaskan King Crab dinner here. Read the rest of this entry
Froshberg Gelato is a new mall-based franchise outlet serving up a variety of gelato flavours – their latest location being in Richmond Centre’s new Dining Terrace next to the other dessert-themed Pinkberry. Read the rest of this entry
For the longest time last year, they were renovating the food court at Richmond Centre – it seemed like it would never be finished. We had made a stop by the mall just before Christmas time last year to do some last minute shopping and decided to check out their new “dining terrace”. Read the rest of this entry
After hitting up Bob’s Submarine Shop in Richmond, I noticed the bright signs of Kam Do Bakery across the street (next to the Shoppers Drug Mart at Richmond Centre). This location is much more convenient than their other location on Alexandra Road since it is so close to the Brighouse Canada Line station. Read the rest of this entry
When it’s cold and dreary outside, there’s nothing better than hot pot for warming up the soul. Fortunately, there’s quite a few hot pot restaurants located around the Lower Mainland where you can get your fix. Mongolian Little Sheep Hot Pot is conveniently located in Lansdowne Mall in Richmond. Read the rest of this entry
