Malay Curry House in Crystal Mall Foodcourt

After church service on Sunday, Ben and I went to Crystal Mall food court for lunch and buy groceries, killing 2 birds with one stone.

We tried the Malay Curry House since the Ipoh Beansprout stall is closed on Sunday.

We shared a Hainanese Chicken from Hell combo. There was too much sauce which was not as spicy hot as its name suggest. In fact, the sauce was too salty.

There were generous amount of boneless Hainanese chicken and the oily rice was good.

The combo came with a drink, some sort of flavoured tea.

Cold drink has an extra $1 charge. We paid cash for it.

I would get the traditional Hainanese Chicken Rice if I’m craving for it but not this saucy one.

Torta Persian Cuisine in Henderson Place Mall, Coquitlam

After the Lafarge Lake visit was cut short by the weather, we went to the nearby Henderson Place Mall for lunch.

We love this mall for it’s variety of Asian and Middle Eastern Cuisines.

This time, the mall seemed more busy than our previous visits. This time, we decided to try the Torta Persian Cuisine.

We picked their specialty Dizi Sangi to try as we saw a copy of a local Chinese newspaper cut out with the photo of Dizi meal pasted in the stall front. We were told that it will take 10 minutes for the food to be heated up. Continue reading

Bian Fu Chang Noodle Shop in Richmond Public Market

Ben and I went to the Richmond Public Market to get groceries. Since, it was near lunch time, Ben suggested that we had lunch here before we headed back home.

Ben decided to try the above Bian Fu Chang stall which was new to us.

Bian Fu Chang is primary a noodle shop which also has some appetizers on the side.

We decided to try their specialty noodle which is the item number 1; Special Six Delicacies & Pigskin. Wow, the bowl was huge.

It was loaded with pigskin, pork slices, pork liver, Chinese sausage, wood ear and bok choy. You have the option to choose the spiciness that you like. We always go with medium. We really enjoy this noodle and will be back to try others.

Bian Fu Chang accepts cash only.

Seoul Truck in Henderson Place Mall, Coquitlam

Nanzaro opted for some Korean food, instead at the Henderson Place Mall food court.

He went to the Seoul Truck stall where the stall front is decorated like a food truck.

Nanzaro ordered the Dak Kang Jeong combo; which include a Korean style Rice Sandwich.

He picked the Hawaiian Way sandwich which has spam, egg, carrot and lettuce.

The combo includes a choice of popcorn chicken with just an additional $4.00. A small popcorn chicken by itself is $5.50.  Nanzaro picked the Seoul Truck’s signature popcorn chicken which is smothered in sweet soy sauce and sauteed chopped garlic. You will need a mint candy after eating this dish as there are a lot of garlic in it.

His meal came to $9.40, including tax and credit card is accepted in this stall.

ML JianBing in Henderson Place Mall, Coquitlam

After the hike at Belcara Regional Park, we went for lunch at Henderson Place Mall in Coquitlam.

The food court was not busy like those in Richmond.

Ben and I decided to try ML JianBing, a northern Chinese cuisine stall.

We ordered one of the item from the “Today’s Special”.

The Cold Noodles was al-dante, or “QQ” as the Chinese call it. It is slightly tangy as the sauce has vinegar in it. Continue reading

Octopus House in Crystal Mall, Burnaby

Since Ben and I attend church near Burnaby, we often take the opportunity to have lunch in Burnaby.

One of our favourite place is the Crystal Mall. For this occasion, Ben decided to try the “Cold Noodle” from Octopus House in the market area.

It looks healthy with a lot of vegetables, :-).

It’s a take out place. We intended to bring it to the food court to eat. I’m sure we are not supposed to bring outside food to the food court. So, Ben bought another item from the food court. Continue reading

WOW Thai Food in International Village Foodcourt, Chinatown Vancouver

Ben and I was in downtown Vancouver for an appointment. We had parked our car in a free parking zone with 2 hours parking limit. We do not have enough time to eat in downtown as we had to make it back to our parking spot with only 30 minutes left.

So, Ben decided to drive to Chinatown and eat in the International Village foodcourt.

There are a Thai seat in restaurant and two Thai stalls in the foodcourt. Ben picked the WOW Thai Food in the foodcourt as we just want to share a dish since we are not too hungry.

We ordered the Phad Thai to try. We opted chicken for the meat and had the spicy version. There were generous amount of chicken meat in it. It had a hint of tanginess and the noodles are slightly moist. We enjoyed it.


Credit card is accepted here.

Chef Rong Noodle House in Crystal Mall Food Court, Burnaby

When in Burnaby, our favourite place to eat out is Crystal Mall. The food court has many stalls that we like; e.g. Ipoh Beansprouts, Bubble Waffle Café, Chao Shou Wang, etc.

On this trip, we discovered a new stall, Chef Rong Noodle House. The noodle stall shared the space with a lady who sells Chinese style wrap.

Ben and I ordered two items to share. The above is called Zunyi Tofu Pudding Noodle.

We find that the addition of the tofu pudding was not necessary. Continue reading

Mambo Cafe in Aberdeen Foodcourt, Richmond

Ben and I had our casual walk on a Saturday morning. We parked our car in Lansdowne Mall, window shopping in the mall for a while and then exit the mall and walked under the Canada Line for shades purpose.

By the time we reached Aberdeen Mall, it was lunch time. We decided to have lunch at the Aberdeen food court. Lately, it’s hard for us to eat out as we cannot eat as much anymore. If it’s just the two of us, we cannot eat in a restaurant as ordering two items will be too much for us. Unless, we have to order something that we can bring the leftover home. Our most convenient destination is food court as we can get one item to share, especially when we plan to go out for dinner with our boys and we do not want to bring home any leftover food.

We ended up ordering an eggplant stir-fried with chicken ball from Mambo. The wait time was long, 20 minutes. The food was good; piping hot and the sauce went well with the steam rice. It was enough for both of us.

The meal came with a free drink. Ben wanted iced milk tea which has an extra charge of $1.00 for cold drink. Our meal, came to $10.75. Mambo accepts cash only.
