We had lunch at Deer Garden on Fraser St.

There is a Diners’ Choice Awards plaque at the entrance. It’s for the best Hong Kong style cafe for the year 2014.

Nothing says more than the decoration on the wall about the restaurant name. Continue reading

Happy Day Cafe on Kingsway, Vancouver

My family went to Kingsway for lunch. Nanzaro’s first choice of restaurant was unfortunately closed, so we ended up going to Happy Day Cafe.

It was just passed 11:30am and there was already a line up. We waited for half an hour before we got a table.

Ben and I shared a Shredded Pork Chow Mien. It was a big serving, good for both of us.

Nanzaro ordered the Minced Beef and Egg on Rice. It was a saucy rice dish.

Our orders came with a drink. Cold drink is a $1.00 extra.

Arkensen took the longest to decide what to order. He finally decided to have Baked signature Pork Chop on Rice.

Arkensen had iced coffee for his drink.

Happy Day Cafe accepts cash only. The meal came to CAD36 with tax and tips.

You can click on the menu to have a larger view.

We were intrigued by the name of the dishes # 227 & 228. Maybe we will try one of them next time we visit this place again.

Kung Fu Noodle at Parker Place, Richmond

Kung Fu Noodle had moved from Venezia Place to Parker Place.

Kung Fu Noodle occupies the previous location of Ningbo Seafood Restaurant.

The decor were mostly from the previous restaurant.

I like the replica art piece of the Ching Ming Festival.

Ben and I shared two bowls of noodle. The first one was the Kungfu Noodle Special with lamb. The broth had a strong lamb flavour which we liked. Continue reading

Home Deli Noodle on No. 3 Road, Richmond

Ben and I went out on a Friday evening for dinner since our boys were not at home.

We went to Home Deli Noodle on No. 3 Road, across the Real Canadian Superstore in Richmond.

The menu generally of northern Chinese food like dumplings, Mala Xiang Guo, noodles and appetizers. That’s why you see a bottle of Chinkiang vinegar on the table.

There were generous amount of beef tribe and tendon. Continue reading

Breakfast at AAA Restaurant on Alexandra Road, Richmond

Ben and I went out for breakfast on a Saturday morning.

We revisited AAA Restaurant for breakfast. It was very busy, just like Lido.

I only ordered the Pineapple Bun since I’m not hungry. It was as good as Lido’s and is served hot from the oven.

Both of us had hot milk tea.

Ben ordered the Satay Beef with instant noodle.

The instant noodle option had a 50cents upcharge. Ben’s order came with a free hot drink.

Ben actually wanted a combo meal which comes with egg but the menus on were all in Chinese. When we asked for an English menu, we were only given the standard menu without the combo version.

This is a Cash only place.

King’s Chinese Cuisine on Main Street, Vancouver

After our walk at Queen Elizabeth Park, we went for breakfast.

We came upon King’s Chinese Cuisine as we turned out to Main Street. So, we had dim sum here.

The place was quite busy. We waited quite a while before our orders arrived. The above was Steamed Custard & Egg Yolk Buns. I like the sweet and savory taste of the filings. Regular dim sum (big, medium and small) is $3.38.

Just be careful biting into them as the filings can be very hot. Continue reading

Deer Garden Signatures in Union Square, Richmond

On a weekend, Ben and I went to Union Square for an early lunch after our morning walk.

It was just after 11:00AM and there was no line at Deer Garden.

The menu is huge. I meant the size of the menu, not the number of items in the menu.

I ordered the signature fish soup combo. I had thick vermicelli with fish fillets and fish tofu (my initial choice was fish puff which they did not have that day). My choice of broth was something Chiu Chow pork. The broth was tasty. Continue reading

Copa Cafe on River Road, Richmond

On a weekend, Ben and I had our morning walk at the Minoru Park. Spring is the most beautiful season, according to Ben.

After our walk in the park, we walked over to the T&T across the Oval. After some light groceries shopping, Ben suggested to have lunch at Copa Cafe around the corner.

We had a short wait for a table as it was almost noon. The decoration is modern as this is relatively a new restaurant.

Water is served instead of Chinese tea like most other Hong Kong style restaurants.

We ordered from the mini set menu which comes with a drink. Ben had the Baked Portuguese style Pork Chop Cutlet on Linguini. Our food took quite a while to arrive. Continue reading
