Tai Tung Chinese Seafood Restaurant: Baked BBQ Pork Buns for Dim Sum

Tai Tung is a Cantonese-style restaurant located in the Marpole area of Vancouver that we visited in late February. The thing that struck us the most about our visit was how quiet it was for a Saturday morning. Usually, that’s a bad sign since most of the good dim sum places are really busy on the weekends. Perhaps we were just here really early?

Golden Paramount Seafood Restaurant: Dim Sum

Golden Paramount Seafood Restaurant (I know, the name sounds just like all of the other Chinese restaurants) recently moved from a small strip mall into a brick building next door. The layout and the building itself is a bit confusing as we had a bit of trouble finding the place after parking in the attached parking structure.

Yue Restaurant: Dim Sum in Richmond

Weekends are made for dim sum (guess it’s the Chinese equivalent of brunch). We decided to check out Yue Restaurant in mid-August. This well-appointed restaurant is located in a little mini mall in Richmond and has a couple of private rooms in the back.

Dragon View Chinese Cuisine: Dim Sum

Dragon View Chinese Cuisine is located on the second floor of Continental Shopping Centre in Richmond and has a pleasant looking interior with interesting chandeliers that, to me, resembled the round leaves of a money tree (lunaria annua). There’s also a large floral mural on one wall made up of tiny metallic and glass tiles.

Over the years, Western Lake Chinese Seafood Restaurant has consistently been rated high by diners in Vancouver. The fact that this restaurant is tiny hasn’t helped since there always seems to be lineups (especially during dim sum).

Fortune City Seafood – Okay Dim Sum

Fortune City Seafood is a large Chinese restaurant located on the top floor of the complex at 1st and Renfrew. As with most Chinese restaurants located in mini mall complexes, I detest the parking (or maybe it’s just the other drivers that I detest).

Victory Seafood – Mediocre Dim Sum

I generally detest the parking lot in Crystal Mall, which I’ve mentioned many times in the past. But we found ourselves in the area in early June and noticed Victory Seafood and figured we’d give it a shot. In truth, I never even knew that they opened here (but I tend to get lost in Crystal Mall’s confounding circular layout).
