There is a new Hong Kong style cafe opens at the ground floor of the Richmond Public Market.
Polly, Lorna and I decided to check it out one early morning since Polly has to go to work later.
We ordered two combos to share. You can click on the above menus to have a larger view.
The first combo consist of Toast, Sausages and Eggs. We had scrambled eggs for easy sharing. Continue reading
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.
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
Ben wanted to get a jacket from Taiga. We went for lunch first before going to Taiga.
We stopped along Victoria Drive to look for a restaurant and we settled with Happy Man Restaurant.
Happy Man Restaurant, like many Chinese restaurant has a whiteboard with daily specials. There are also colour photos of some of their menu items pasted on the walls.
We went for their Combo for 2 which comes with free soup and rice for $24.95. The daily soup was pork bone with carrots and lotus root.
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.
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.
BBQ Pork Buns is $4.68. It was served piping hot, so be careful when biting into it. Continue reading
Ben picked Hollywood Steak House for lunch on a Saturday. It’s been a long time since he ate here.
The restaurant is decorated with some black and white Hollywood scenes, even the ceiling.
We like their menu with colourful photots. You can click on the menu to have a larger view.
Ben ordered a Tom Yum Seafood Rice Noodle Soup for $8.95. It was surprisingly flavourful with various seafood. Continue reading
Marian and I intended to buy Lorna lunch at a new noodle restaurant in Alexandra Road to celebrate her birthday.
King Fu Noodle is located next to Cattle Cafe which we just blogged not long ago.
We were the first customers there at 11:00AM on a week day. The seating is not cramp.
Their menu is complete with photos.
Marian was in-charged of ordering as she had dined here before. The above was Red-Cooked Chicken in the appetizer section. It was served cold and had five spice flavour. This is $4.99.
The second appetizer we ordered was Shredded Potato with Chili for $3.59. It was not very spicy but had a vinegarish taste and a crunchy texture. Continue reading
Ever since Excelsior Restaurant is taken over by Sanbo Restaurant, we had been putting off the idea of going there.
Ben jokingly commented that the kingcrabs on the restaurant banner looks like spiders.
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.
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
Ben has the crave for dim sum lately. It’s a good place to have a variety of food in small plates.
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.
Park Here is just a direct mimic of the phonetic of its Chinese name which literally translated to hundred happiness.
We ascertained that it’s a Vietnamese Dim Sum restaurant because the man who managed the counter speaks Vietnamese and Cantonese.
There are life fish in tanks in view from the dining hall as this is a seafood restaurant.
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
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.
He thinks we’ll like the menu as Cattle Cafe is not just about the pick your self noodle.
Cattle Cafe is not as busy when it first opens here.
Nanzaro ordered the Curry Boneless Chicken with Rice for $9.59. He likes boneless meat. The curries menu includes a hot drink. Continue reading
On Boxing Day, Nanzaro hanged out with us for shopping in Metrotown. Ben suggested to go for dim sum again and he agreed.
We went to Star Anise Restaurant, the former location of Samosa Garden.
The restaurant is nicely decorated and seating is not tide.
The first thing after seated down is to order tea. I ordered Chrysanthemum tea this time.
The order chit is fancy, with colour photo of the dish. We like it. Continue reading
