89 Degrees Wonderful House Restaurant on Kingsway, Burnaby


LR organized a mini chowdown at 89 degrees Shanghai Fusion Cuisine. Attendees included retired food blogger Karl of The Friday Lunch and Dennis the Foodie and missus (Wendy).

89 degrees Shanghai Fusion Cuisine is a family run restaurant.

I like the signage stands outside the restaurant which are loaded with pictures.

We left the ordering to Karl as he seems to be quite a regular here.

Menu with photos is always a good thing.

A table full of food. Here are what Karl ordered.

Drunken Chicken. The wine flavour is definitely pronounced.

Sliced Pork Belly with Garlic Sauce. I preferred the version from S&W Pepper House which has a stronger garlic flavour.

Hot & Sour Soup is mildly spicy.

Fried Shanghai Noodle for carbo.

Pork in Garlic Chili Sauce was good, quite spicy and saucy. This is great with steamed rice.

Fried Long Beans was good too as they retained the crispness in them.

Malay Laksa with Seafood is definitely not a Shanghai dish. But it was good with the right amount of spiciness.

Xiao Long Bao was LR’s request. They were just ok, not too juicy.

Crispy Salty Pepper Chicken was Wendy’s (Dennis missus) order. She likes to order food that she will not cook at home.

Last main dish was Ginger Beef, a Canadian invention.

Wendy took the liberty to order a couple of dessert. There is always room for dessert for me. She ordered the Red Bean Paste Pancake. They were not too oily or sweet.

The above dessert was from the secret menu. The secret menu is more to traditional Shanghai dish. We should have ordered from this secret menu from the beginning. However, there is no picture on this menu and it’s in Chinese only.

The dessert above is Osmanthus with Fermented Rice Wine Dessert Soup with Sesame Filled Glutinous Rice Ball. There were some discussions on what is osmanthus when the dessert arrived.

Osmanthus is the little specs of flowers in the soup. Osmanthus give a nice scent to the soup.

The meal came to CAD25 per person including tips. The service is friendly here.

There were a lot of leftovers for each of us to take home some.

We really like the rice scoop here. Ben likes it so much that he got one from Ebay immediately, just $1.30.
