Royal Seafood Restaurant in Garden City Shopping Centre, Richmond

The praise dance at Richmond Chinese Alliance Church had the last session of praise dance last Friday. It will resume in February 2018.

All the participants were presented with a token of appreciation. It is a Christmas card made of a photo of the group.

We usually have some snacks after the practice, sponsored by the church.

For this meeting, Jessica, one of the participant made some Steamed Rice Cake with Red Bean (“Poot Jei Gou”) for the group. It is very kind of her. If you are interested on how to make it, chowtimes has the recipe here.

After snack, we continued with a review practice which is held at the last session of the month. The group (some of us) then adjourned to their regular dim sum restaurant, Royal Seafood Restaurant for lunch.

Thomas was in charged of the ordering. The above is the Free Range Chicken in Mustard Sauce. Beware that sometimes the mustard sauce can gives you a sting up the nose if you hit a piece with a good dose of it. Continue reading

Praise Dance Christmas Dinner 2017

I attended the annual Christmas Party organized by Canada Praise Dance Association for the first time last Saturday.

The event was well organized by a lot of volunteers.

The event opens its door at 2:15pm while the actual program starts at 3:30pm.

Fruits and desserts were served while we wait for the program to start.

The desserts were mostly made by volunteers. The above jello was so pretty. Continue reading

Sanbo Restaurant on No.3 Road, Richmond

Ben and I attended the Remembrance Day Service in Richmond.

The service took place at the Cenotaph right in front of the City Hall.

After the service, Ben and I walked over to Sanbo Restaurant for lunch. Since it was still early for lunch hour, we had no problem getting a table. This place is usually busy at peak lunch or dinner hour.

We had hot Hong Kong style coffee and milk tea which came with our meal.

Ben ordered the Beef Tripe Lo Mien but he got the Hainanese Chicken Lo Mien. We thought the server made a mistake and we just did not bother to ask and just accept the food as we were not fussy people. Continue reading

Banzai Sushi House on Westminster Hwy, Richmond

I have not blogged about Banzai Sushi House for a number of years even though we had been eaten here or take out party tray.

We came here on a Saturday around 11AM. We were practically the first eat in customers. There were already some take out orders which is popular here.

Nanzaro ordered the Salmon Don. The salmon sashimi was a generous portion. This is $10.95.

Arkensen ordered a Golden Roll and a Vancouver Roll. The Golden Roll is made with chopped scallop and topped with smoked salmon. The Vancouver Roll is basically California roll topped with smoked salmon. The rolls are $5.45 and $4.45 respectively. Continue reading

Tasty Indian Bistro on 120th St, Delta

My family was in the Delta/Surrey neighbourhood for a special event. So, we decided to have lunch here after the event.

Ben brought us to Tasty Indian Bistro in Delta. We were there before noon and got a parking spot without problem. But when we left, the parking lot was full. As we exited the restaurant, a lady approached us and asked us if we were leaving. She then stood at our spot and made a call, probably for someone that has been looking for a parking spot.

The decoration looks on the high end side.

I like the bronze cutlery.

Arkensen ordered from the lunch special; Non-veg Special for CAD13. He opted for the Goat Curry. The other option is Butter Chicken. The lunch special came with 2 pieces of Tandoori chicken on top of some basmati rice. Continue reading

Continental Seafood Restaurant on Cambie Road, Richmond

Some of the praise dance group participants attended the following luncheon, including me.

The speaker is highly recommended by those who had heard his talk before. The talk at this luncheon is about happiness in work place. How many of you all are happy with what you are doing at work?

The ticket for this luncheon is CAD15 and held at the Continental Seafood Restaurant on Cambie Road, Richmond.

The luncheon started with a dim sum item, i.e. siu mai. Continue reading
