My family went for an early dim sum breakfast on Good Friday.
After searching for a while, the only restaurant that opens as early as 8:30am is Imperial Court Beijing Cuisine at Brighouse Square. Most of the dim sum restaurants in Richmond open after 9:00am.
Tea charge is $1.25 per person. Even though there is people in the party who do not drink tea (like Arkensen), we still have to pay for tea charge for 3 people.
Hot pot rice is on special price ($3.80) before 11:00am. We had the Chinese Sausage & Spare Ribs on Rice. This is a good deal.
Minced Pork & Shrimp Dumplings ($4.25) for Arkensen.
Braised Chicken Feat ($3.95) for the adults. I love the collagen but my boy said there is no meat in it.
Steamed Sticky Rice Wrapped with Lotus Leaf ($4.25).
As we unwrapped the sticky rice, there is just a small piece of lotus leaf inside a larger piece of paper. Ben commented that lotus leaf must be expensive nowadays.
Stuff Eggplant with Shrimp Paste was under special at $4.95. Most of the dim sum here comes in 3 pieces which is just right for our family of three as Nanzaro was still in bed and did not want to come out with us.
Steamed Rice Roll with Chinese Donut is also under special at $4.95. This was Arkensen’s choice.
The last item was Braised Beef Tripe & Combo, also under special at $4.95. This was slightly spicy.
Our bill has a 20% discount for the small, medium and large items (i.e. special is excluded). This discount applies for orders entered before 11:00am.
