Of all the new restaurants opening that I am most excited about, it is definitely this one.
It was yesterday, Nanzaro and I went for dinner at Tsim Chai when we had a pleasant surprise to see a familiar name. We still remember the duck feast we had in Man Ri Sung in April 2009 when they were in Coquitlam. You really gotta to see what I mean by looking at this “Oh My, Oh Wow!” post here.
A lot of the foodies were shocked a few weeks ago when the old tenant of this location closed suddenly. This place used to be a very good Sichuan restaurant called Chuan Xiang Ge.
Located in the same strip mall along Westminster Highway as Tsim Chai Noodles and Banzai Sushi House, Man Ri Sung is a Korean restaurant. When they were still in Coquitlam, their specialty is the $50 Duck Feast. The chef will personally carve the duck in front of you.
After our dinner in Tsim Chai, we walked into the yet to be ready restaurant and lo and behold … the same chef was there. None of them speak much English. Although they are Koreans, they speak Mandarin too. So I spoke with them in my best-effort Mandarin. I think we understood each other 50% of the time.
But what we both understood was the word “DUCK”. Yeah, the chef nodded and smiled when I said the word “DUCK”.
I tried to ask him if he will also be offering his Duck Feast but he did not understand me. Oh well, but I think he would because that was what he was famous for.
It looks like the Man Ri Sung in Coquitlam is closed forever. Coquitlam’s loss, Richmond’s gain. :-)
He told me he will be opening on March 3rd (Thursday) at the latest, if not a day earlier.
Hehehe … already I had made plans to eat there already. I got a few people interested on going on March 11th, which is the Friday after their opening. Anyone interested to TOFTT?
Updated: 28th Feb 2011; we had reached our limit of 20 people for our casual dining at MRS on the March 11th event already. We are not accepting any more participation for this event.
