Firebird Cafe at Continental Plaza, Richmond


Ben, Nanzaro and I went out for dinner on a Saturday night. This time, Arkensen stayed home as he wanted to finished his homework.

We went to Firebird Cafe in Continental Plaza. It was relatively new when we visited in March. The restaurant was full but we only had to wait for a few minutes for a table.

Ben and I shared two items. The first dish was a customizable noodle soup. We had Malay Laksa Soup with pork skin and fish tofu. The ramen noodle has an extra charge of 50cents. Besides the two toppings we picked, it also came with cabbage, bean curd, mushroom, green onion and cilantro. It was a big serving as I’m already full after having half of the bowl.

Ben and I also shared a Curry Fried Pork Chop with Rice.

Again, it was a large serving. The curry was very creamy. We could not finished this dish and had quite a bit of leftover pack to go.

Nanzaro also had the customizable noodle soup. He had the Gingko & Pepper Fish Soup with thick Rice Noodle. His choice of topping was Vietnamese style pork and fish puff. Apparently, the ordering sheet has a print mistake as you will not find the fish puff on it. Instead it was printed as fish ball at the bottom of third column (the Chinese name was printed correctly though). The server said it was an error and she will inform her boss about it.

Besides getting what you want, you can exclude items like cabbage, bean curd, mushroom, green onion and cilantro. Nanzaro excluded most of these except the green onion and cilantro.

Our order comes with a free hot drink. Ben and I had Horlick since it’s dinner time. Nanzaro had ice Ovaltine which has $1 extra charge.
