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

Tin Tin Seafood Harbour Restaurant on No. 3 Road, Richmond

Emily celebrated her birthday with me, Dora and Lorna at Tin Tin Seafood Harbour Restaurant.

We had booked a table for 5:30PM. When we were there, there was no customer yet. So, we told the server we will returned half an hour later. We went to Yaohan to do some shopping first.

When we returned, the restaurant had some customers already but not too busy yet.

Lorna had the honour to do the ordering. The above is Seafood Lettuce Wrap. The iceberg lettuce was very fresh and crisp. The seafood filings were made with shrimps, scallop and vegetables like carrots and water chestnut which give it some crunch. Continue reading

Breakfast at Congee Noodle King on Kingsway. Vancouver

Once again, we had to find a place for early breakfast on a weekend.

IMG_9369

We found Congee Noodle King on Kingsway which opens at 9:00AM. This place fills up quite quickly.

IMG_9374

Ben selected Fish and Pork Liver Congee as he loves liver. The congee is seasoned.

IMG_9376

We also ordered shrimp rice roll to go with the congee.

IMG_9371

The last item we shared was Beef Brisket and Tendon Mixed Noodle. The serving was quite big.

IMG_9372

The soup which was served on the side had a strong fish (kind of those dried fish) taste to it.

Congee Noodle King accepts cash only.

After breakfast, we went to QE Park for a walk. QE Park prostrates different scenery in different season. It’s a popular tourist spot.

Lunch Special at Specialty Chicken & Wonton House, Richmond

Of late, Ben’s obsession is soy sauce chicken. He loves the umami taste of the soy sauce.

We went to Specialty Chicken & Wonton House for an early lunch after our weekend walk.

IMG_9162

We ordered from the lunch special. Soy Sauce Chicken Rice is $9.45.

IMG_9161

For the lunch special, you can have a soup or a drink. Ben opted for the daily soup. The daily soup of the day was pork bones with red carrot and green carrot. Continue reading

Sing Yee Chinese Restaurant opens for dinner only

My family came out for dinner on a Saturday evening. We wanted to go to Happy Tree House BBQ on Alexandra Road. But there was no parking available despite we went around the block twice.

IMG_8975

So, Ben drove to Continental Plaza which he thought parking will be slightly better. Yes, indeed. We had no trouble finding one. We walked over the Firebird Cafe but it was closed without any notice on the door. Strange.

Then, Ben suggested to go to Sing Yee Chinese Restaurant which is opened for dinner only for sometime already. Sing Yee was full house. We had to wait for at least 20 minutes for a table.

IMG_8962

We ordered a dinner combo for 3 where we get to choose three dishes for $46.80. The above was the complimentary soup of the day. It was pork soup with carrot, corn and almond. The soup was flavourful.

IMG_8967

Our choice of dishes included the above Steamed Pork with Salted Egg. We enjoyed comfort home style food. Continue reading

Sanbo Restaurant at Brighouse Square, Richmond

This was a dinner on a Sunday evening. It was about 6:30pm and Sanbo Restaurant was full house. There were even people waiting for a table outside the restaurant. When Ben checked with the waitress, she told us the wait will be 15 minutes. But we waited for more than half and hour for a table. Never trust them about the waiting time as it is always longer than they anticipated.

IMG_8674

The above was the complimentary daily soup. There is no way to get Arkensen and Nanzaro to try it. It looked unappetizing like some kind of bitter Chinese medicine. Fortunately, it tasted alright. I presumed the colour is from some of the Chinese herbs in the soup.

IMG_8678

We ordered 4 dishes to share. Ben wanted to have their specialty chicken but it was sold out that evening. The above was Halibut and Tofu in Hot Pot.

IMG_8676

The second hot pot dish was Assorted Seafood with Vermicelli in Satay Sauce. There were a fair amount of pineapples, sweet peppers and onions in it. Continue reading

Kongee Dinesty on Capstan Way, Richmond

Lorna and I went to Kongee Dinesty for lunch before we went to Costco in Richmond.

IMG_7391

Kongee Dinesty offers customizable congee and traditional Chinese dishes.

IMG_7386

Kongee Dinesty has a open kitchen where customers can see cooks at work.

IMG_7376

Chinese tea is served. The tea had a flower scent to it.

IMG_7379

Lorna ordered her favourite handmade Sweet Chinese Donut.

IMG_7385

She also wanted to try their Imitation Shark Fin Soup. The imitation shark fin is actually bean thread noodle. Lorna commented that the version here is just so-so.  Continue reading

Cantonese BBQ Restaurant on Capstan Way, Richmond

My family went out for dinner on a Saturday evening. Only Nanzaro came with us as Arkensen was in the midst of doing his homework and he did not want to be interrupted.

IMG_7342

We went to the new (to us) Cantonese B.B.Q. Restaurant on Capstan Way, Richmond. We did not see a lot of BBQ meat from the window.

IMG_7328

The menu cover is nice. We ordered a combo for 3 at $50 which comes with 2 BBQ meat and two dishes.

IMG_7331

Complimentary daily soup.

IMG_7332

We had BBQ duck and BBQ pork for the 2 BBQ meat because we had roasted pork from HK BBQ master the day before. Continue reading

Specialty Chicken & Wonton House on Ackroyd Road, Richmond

This is just a comfort lunch for Ben and I after our morning walk on a weekend.

IMG_7240

We had lunch at Specialty Chicken Chicken & Wonton House on Ackroyd Road. We ordered two dishes to share. The first item was Halibut Hot Pot. The halibut was slightly crunchy as they were deep fried before cooking in the hot pot with lots of onion and green onion. I can just eat rice with the onions alone with the sauce that sticks to the onions.

IMG_7239

The second dish was Pork Chop with Garlic Honey. We only had a few bite of this as the halibut hot pot alone is good for both of us. We packed the rest of the pork chop for my boys.

IMG_7242

The meal came with steamed rice and daily soup. This is a cash only place.
