Fortune House Seafood Restaurant – Dim Sum

Fortune House Seafood Restaurant often gets discounted because it’s located in Metrotown and, let’s be honest, the lineup here can get rather discouraging during the peak dim sum hours.

Since we live nearby and we wanted some dim sum before heading out for a quick run to the border, we popped over to Fortune House. They open at 9am on the weekend so we managed to find a table rather easily.

We started out with an order of Deep Fried Taro Dumplings. The deep fried exterior was pleasantly contrasted with the creamy inside filling.

Har Gow is a standard dim sum dish and I found Fortune House’s version to be pretty good. Actually, all of the dim sum dishes that I tried on this visit were all pretty solid.

I find that one of the things that I really enjoy about the Chinese Donut Rice Roll is how the velvety smooth rice roll contrasts with the crunchy donut on the inside.

Steamed beef omasum is probably not one of the dishes that most westerners would eagerly be willing to try. But if you’ve never tried it before, you should definitely give it a whirl. By itself, it’s fairly flavourless… which is why the proper accompanying sauce is important.

Steamed Beef Balls is another one of our go-to dim sum dishes.

Last up on this visit was the Mini Egg Tarts. They were appropriately served last as they were freshly baked and still warm. I love how there were so many delicate, flaky layers to the crust.

Overall, I thought the food was fairly well prepared and, because we came by so early, we didn’t have to wait.
