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

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

Chachi’s Pacific Centre, Vancouver

Nanzaro went to downtown for lunch again.

He had lunch at the Pacific Centre food court.

He picked Chachi’s for lunch. The packaging looks good and environment friendly.

He had a Pulled Pork with Mac & Cheese Sandwich. The bun was tender and the sweet chili BBQ sauce goes well with the creamy mac & cheese.

He also added a side of Jalapeno chips which has a little kick in it.

His meal came to CAD13.65 including tax. Credit card is accepted here.
