Hon’s Wun-Tun House (or better known as just Hon’s) is noted for it’s Chinese “comfort food”. The restaurant serves primarily cantonese style food and has been a favourite chinese restaurant in Vancouver for many years. Hons is well regarded for its wonton and noodle dishes, pot sticker dumplings (fried or steamed), and barbecued beef. More than 300 dishes are featured on the extensive menu!
Meals are prepared in an open kitchen as diners look on. Although this concept is pretty common in Asia, it is a novelty in Canada. The restaurant started 25 years ago as a lone restaurant and has since opened many outlets throughout the Lower Mainland. We visited the outlet in Richmond’s No 3 Road recently.
Although there were so many dishes on the menu, Arkensen and Nanzaro always wanted only two dishes — all the time the same dishes, without fail! One of the favourite is the Chicken and Salted Fish Fried Rice (ham yee gai lap chow fan). All the servings are huge in Hon’s. The one dish is enough for two people or more. The fried rice costs about $8-$9.
The other dish the boys love is the Eefu Noodle with Shredded Chicken Meat. The Eefu noodle are prepared together with bean sprout but since the boys don’t like it, we asked that the cook leave that out. This dish too costs about less than $10.
