Ben and I went to Lansdowne Mall for lunch as we wanted to check out the carnival which takes place every spring break. I also wanted to check out my new cell phone picture quality as I had to let go of my old cell phone and camera which had broke down.
Nowadays, Ben and I cannot eat a lot. We usually share a meal for lunch and the only choice we can have is to go to a food court. Instead of going to our favourite Bubble Waffle Café, we tried Grill King this time. The server must have caught me taking a photo of the stall and he posted a smile for the camera, :-).
We shared the Korean Noodle Soup which was posted on the banner. We opted for grill chicken which was pretty good.
We do not find anything Korean about this noodle soup, just a regular Chinese noodle soup.
The combo meal came with a large cup of milk tea. It was a great deal for less than CAD7.00.
After lunch, we went outside to check out the carnival. This year, the carnival took place from 16th March to 25 March, 2018. Continue reading
This was a snack before Lorna and I went for a dinner at Floata Seafood Restaurant a while ago.
Lorna did not have time to go for lunch and she was really hungry. So, we went to the food court in Chinatown Plaza to look for some snack.
Only two stalls were still opened at that time on a Sunday.
Lorna ordered a Fish Ball Rice Noodle Soup. I tried one of the fish ball and it was quite bouncy.
She also got some Deep Fried Vegetable Springrolls to share with me. The shell was very crunchy and hot. They were made to order.
Nanzaro and I went to Yaohan Food Court for lunch on a Sunday late morning. We went there early because parking is difficult in this parking lot.
Look what I found, a new stall specializing in lamb soup, :-).
I ordered a small Lamb Noodle Soup to try. I can detect the lamb flavour in the broth but not very strong.
The chili was quite fragrant and I just spiced up the noodles with it. Continue reading
On a lovely Saturday morning, Ben and I wanted to go for a walk in Central Park. Before the walk, we decided to grab a light breakfast in Crystal Mall food court.
We decided to share a bowl of noodle from Bubble Waffle Cafe. There were not many stalls that open that early.
We had a Spicy Minced Pork Mixed Noodle. It was on the salty side but we like the numbing spiciness of it.
I also ordered a plain bubble waffle to snack on. It was crispy on the outside and lightly chewy inside. The bill came to $8.50.

Richmond Public Market is decorated with red decor to usher the Chinese New Year, just like every Chinese mall in Richmond.
We went to the Richmond Public Market for dinner on a weekend. It was not busy at that time, around 7PM as most of the stores in the lower floor had closed or in the process of closing for the day.
Nanzaro decided to try a new store in the Richmond Public Market. Spicy Master serves mala xianggoa just like Want Want Hot & Spicy House in Yaohan.
You select the ingredients that you like and is charged by the weight.
Perhaps, it’s new, the server told us that we can select a free appetizer from the menu above. The free ones are all those on the second row and the right most on the third row. Continue reading
After having lunch at Ali Shan Restaurant, we walked over to Crystal Mall for dessert.
We found a dessert stall called Cherry Tea & Icy Bar in the ever busy food court.
I wanted something hot and Cherry Tea & Icy Bar has a bill board of hot dessert.
I opted for the Cha Cha Soup which I assumed it to be Bubur Cha Cha in Malaysian cuisine. The Malaysian version is typically made with sweet potatoes, taro and tapioca jelly. But the version here is made of peanuts, mochi, red and green beans, kidney beans and tapioca pearl. It was not bad. The large bowl costs $3.75.
Ben and I went for breakfast on a Sunday morning. Ben gave me a choice of McDonalds or Lido. I picked Lido as I would prefer a hot pineapple bun over a cold muffin. I like sweet stuff for breakfast. Ben prefers savoury breakfast.
When we arrived at Lido, we were surprised that the parking lot was so empty. Lido was locked up; the door handle was covered with a basket. I went down to look at all the notices on the door and found out that Lido is closed from Oct 14th to 31st for renovation.
So, I suggested to go to Parker Place food court which is just nearby. A few of the stalls were opened at this early hour. We settled with Yummy Yummy for our breakfast.
All the breakfast selection comes with a drink. Both of us opted for hot milk tea. All the above for $8.50. Continue reading
It was a hot Friday. In fact, BC is having a heat wave for another week. Cooking in the kitchen is just going to add more heat in the house. So, Ben decided to go out for a walk. He wanted to check out the new Chinese Supermarket in Richmond, For Real Fresh Foodmart. It is spacious but parking is a nightmare with only one entry/exit point.
After checking out For Real Fresh Foodmart we decided to have dinner at Yaohan foodcourt. After browsing all the stalls, I settled with Lumingchun which serves Xian cuisine.
I had a spicy lamb noodle soup for $7.50. It has clumps of ground lamb, red and green sweet peppers and lots of onions. It was fairly spicy. A deposit of $3 is added to the bill for the deposit of the bowl and refundable upon return of it.
I like the texture of the handmade noodle and their chili which is quite fragrant.
Ben decided to get a two dishes combo from Chung Hing stall for $7. He had braised beef with bean curd sticks and some drumsticks. Instead of rice, he had the combo with fried noodles.
Ben wanted a savoury breakfast on a Saturday morning. So, we went to Parker Place as there are not many places are opened around 8:00AM.
Parker Place foodcourt was almost full even at this early hour. Only three stalls were opened; Macau Cafe, a HongKong style cafe and a Vietnamese stall.
We decided to go for Macau Cafe because Ben wanted fried vermicelli. The above is Macau style fried vermicelli which has prawns, BBQ pork, green and red sweet pepper, carrot, green onion, onion. This is just what Ben wanted. The combo with a drink is $7.50. Continue reading
Ben and I were at the Yaohan Foodcourt looking for breakfast.
We settled with Wah Yuen Noodle House for some Hong Kong style breakfast.
Ben had a multi meatballs noodle soup for $6. It came with some seaweed too.
I had a Beef and Tendon dry mix noodle. It is also $6. Continue reading
