Richmond Public Market is decorated with red decor to usher the Chinese New Year, just like every Chinese mall in Richmond.

We went to the Richmond Public Market for dinner on a weekend. It was not busy at that time, around 7PM as most of the stores in the lower floor had closed or in the process of closing for the day.

IMG_2724

Nanzaro decided to try a new store in the Richmond Public Market. Spicy Master serves mala xianggoa just like Want Want Hot & Spicy House in Yaohan.

You select the ingredients that you like and is charged by the weight.

Perhaps, it’s new, the server told us that we can select a free appetizer from the menu above. The free ones are all those on the second row and the right most on the third row. Continue reading

Neptune Seafood Restaurant on No. 3 Road, Richmond

Once again, Ben is craving for dim sum. We went to Neptune Seafood Restaurant on a Sunday afternoon on prompto.  That is not a good idea and the restaurant was packed. We had to wait for 30 minutes for our table. As we waited, we noticed that most of the customers coming in had reservation.

IMG_2567

This time, I ordered “Iron Goddess” tea. I’m impressed that the cover of the tea pot is actually printed with the tea name. Most dim sum restaurants will have a slip of paper placed on top of the tea pot to indicate the tea name.

You can click on the menu to have a larger view. Prices are on the higher end.

First course is Pork Kidney/Liver Congee. Single serving is $6.98. The congee is slightly on the watery side. Luckily we only ordered the single serving as the boys did not touch it.

IMG_2571IMG_2572

BBQ Pork Buns is $4.68. It was served piping hot, so be careful when biting into it. Continue reading

Hollywood Steak House on Leslie Road, Richmond

Ben picked Hollywood Steak House for lunch on a Saturday. It’s been a long time since he ate here.

Kung Fu Noodle on Alexandra Road, Richmond

Marian and I intended to buy Lorna lunch at a new noodle restaurant in Alexandra Road to celebrate her birthday.

Sanbo Restaurant at Brighouse Square, Richmond

Ever since Excelsior Restaurant is taken over by Sanbo Restaurant, we had been putting off the idea of going there.

IMG_2523

Ben jokingly commented that the kingcrabs on the restaurant banner looks like spiders.

IMG_2517

We had lunch here on a Saturday afternoon. Sanbo is a Hong Kong style restaurant, just like it’s predecessor. Hot drink is included in the lunch order but cold drink  is charged 0.95 cents extra.

IMG_2519

I ordered a wonton noodle soup as I wanted a light meal. I noticed that the noodle soup comes with a lot of garlic chips just like those served at Excelsior. Continue reading

Park Here Seafood Restaurant on Kingsway, Vancouver

Ben has the crave for dim sum lately. It’s a good place to have a variety of food in small plates.

IMG_2484

This dim sum restaurant is on Kingsway where Vietnamese restaurants dominated the scene. Park Here Seafood Restaurant is a Vietnamese Dim Sum restaurant as the signboard below indicates.

IMG_2482

Park Here is just a direct mimic of the phonetic of its Chinese name which literally translated to hundred happiness.

IMG_2473

We ascertained that it’s a Vietnamese Dim Sum restaurant because the man who managed the counter speaks Vietnamese and Cantonese.

IMG_2469

There are life fish in tanks in view from the dining hall as this is a seafood restaurant.

IMG_2468IMG_2471

After browsing at the dim sum menu above, Ben decided to order all the three dishes with a star denominator. You can click on the menu to have a larger view.

The first star item is Beef Tendon Brisket with Rice Flour Roll from the kitchen specialties. Continue reading

Cattle Cafe on Alexandra Road, Richmond

We have not been back to Cattle Cafe for a long time. Ben occasionally had lunch at Cattle Cafe at Metrotown. He thinks we’ll like the menu as Cattle Cafe is not just about the pick your self noodle.
