New Lakeview Seafood: Mountain of Noodles
Okay, bear with me for a bit… this post is a year in the making. Back in February of 2018, I dropped by New Lakeview Seafood in Burnaby for a revisit since it had been over 4 years since my last visit. I remembered that this place gets very busy during the lunch hour rush so I was fairly surprised that it wasn’t that busy (perhaps it was all of the snow that we had on this day).
Undeterred, I saddled up to one of the tables and ordered the Tai Pan Don Chow Mein ($9.25) which is a vegetarian soy sauce noodle dish with shiitake mushrooms, green onions, onions, and a mountain of noodles. Seriously, this was huge pile of noodles.
A few months later, I had a hankering for some wonton noodle soup so I came back for a revisit and ordered the Beef Brisket and Wonton Noodle Soup ($9). Interestingly, they brought me out a fork with my dish and they seemed surprised when I asked for a pair of chopsticks. Maybe I don’t look Chinese enough…
This is a big bowl of noodles… easily big enough to share with two people. There’s also quite a large amount of tender beef brisket in this dish. What you don’t see in the first picture is the 6 large pork and shrimp wontons underneath all of the noodles.
In keeping with the theme of this post, here’s their Special Chow Mein ($11.75) which comes with a mix of seafood and various meats (bbq pork, chicken, shrimp, squid, shiitake mushrooms, veggies, etc…). This isn’t on their lunch special menu and it seemed to take longer for them to make. Probably best to just stick with their lunch specials.
Exactly 1 year from my initial revisit in 2018, I returned to New Lakeview Seafood (interestingly enough, it was also a snowy day). The Pan Fried Beef with Rice Noodles ($11.50) is another noodle dish (this time, a broad and flat rice noodle) which I’ve always enjoyed since my childhood. Simple and satisfying… and let’s not forget the huge portion size.
If you’re looking for a place to fill up on carbs… this is a good place to visit.
