Good Choice Restaurant – Dim Sum
There’s a tiny little Chinese restaurant located at the corner of Fraser St. and E 44th Ave known as Good Choice Restaurant. This area was previously recognized as the Punjabi neighbourhood owing to the large amount of East Indian shops along Fraser Street. Similar to the exodus of Chinese merchants from Chinatown to Richmond, many of the East Indian shops along Fraser have moved out to Surrey to stay close to their customer base. Hence, you’ll see a much more diverse offering here now. Perhaps that’s why they’ve tried to reimagine/rename the area now as “South Hill”.
We came by for an early weekend dim sum visit in September. The first dish that we ordered was the Shredded Chicken Cold Cuts ($6.50) which came with thinly cut (yet dense) cold chicken, jellyfish and crispy chips.
Steamed Shrimp Dumplings ($4.25) came with lots of plump shrimp inside the translucent wrapper.
Stir Fried Radish Cake in Spicy XO Sauce ($5.95) had a good flavour mixed with the crunchiness of the bean sprouts.
Steamed Pork Dumplings ($4.25) weren’t the best that I’ve had before as the skin was a bit too thick.
Steamed Beef Balls ($3.50) was pretty standard… not much that stood out but it wasn’t bad either.
I did quite enjoy the Mini Egg Tarts ($3.50) as they came out fresh and hot at the end of our meal and had a perfect flaky crust.
If you can’t find any street parking, there’s plenty of free parking located behind the restaurant.
