Sun Sui Wah (Richmond): Dim Sum

Due to the large number of dim sum restaurants in the area, it’s not unusual for us to go for years before returning to a restaurant that we’ve previously tried before… even one that we’ve quite enjoyed. Sun Sui Wah used to be one of the more popular dim sum restaurants in Vancouver/Richmond (they have locations in both cities) but I had heard that the food quality had declined recently.

Deer Garden Signatures – Malay Laksa Soup

Deer Garden Signatures is a fairly popular chain restaurant. Never having been to the location at Venezia Place before, I had a difficult time actually finding it because it’s located on the second floor of this complex.

Kongee Dinesty – Congee Breakfast Set

For some reason or another, I always seem to have troubles when trying to check out restaurants… from lost reservations and power failures to my personal favourite… restaurants being closed when they should be open. Such was the case when I had tried to visit Lido Restaurant in Richmond. Since they were closed and it was still early in the morning, I wound up dropping by Kongee Dinesty since it was relatively nearby.

Top Shanghai Cuisine – Worst. Service. Ever.

Ok, the thing that you’ve got to know about most Chinese restaurants is that you can’t expect much in terms of service. So when you run into a restaurant which makes all of the other Chinese restaurants look like 5-star contenders, that’s saying a lot.

Chef Tony – Line Up for Dim Sum

Generally speaking, we’re not the kind of people that line up for restaurants anymore… if we do, it better be darn good. And if you see us lining up for dim sum, it probably means we woke up late (after all, there are tons of places to have dim sum and we prefer eating early to avoid the rush).

Chef Hung Taiwanese Beef Noodle (Aberdeen)

Aberdeen Centre has some really good eats. If it weren’t for all of the crazy people in the parking lot, we’d probably be here more often. On one visit, we decided to try a Chef Hung Taiwanese Beef Noodle.

Pepper Lunch Canada – DIY Teppanyaki

The great thing about Instagram is that you get to see all the great food people are trying in your area. The bad thing is that you start getting a serious case of FOMO because you’re not eating the same thing right now.

Kyung Bok Palace – Menu Change Doesn’t Help

It’s been a few years since we last dined at Kyung Bok Palace in Lansdowne Mall. I remember our first few visits being not too bad (aside from the lack of service which was appalling even for an asian restaurant). We heard that their menu had changed and decided to give them another try… much to our dismay, the menu change hasn’t helped them.

Bubble Queen – Strawberry White Chocolate Chip Bubble Waffle

We heard about the various bubble waffles and fresh fruit bubble tea that they serve at Bubble Queen in Richmond and decided to give them a try. It actually took us a while to figure out that they were located on the outside of the shopping complex (facing McKim Way).
