When Ben and I were having our evening walk, we found a new Persian restaurant in the President Plaza Foodcourt.
I remembered Minoo had just mentioned to me about a Persian restaurant in a Chinese mall on Cambie Street that she would like to introduce to me before we stumbled upon this place. This must be it. According to Minoo, this restaurant is run by a brother and sister.
Ben and I shared a Kubideh which the owner told us is a skewer made with a combination of minced beef and lamb. It was a generous helping with grilled tomatoes and salad. It was the end of the day and we paid the $11 dollar dish with a $20 note. The owner gave us a change of $10 because she did not have small change and neither do us. She said it’s ok. But, we returned the next day with the family as I know Nanzaro loves Persian food. I paid her the $1 that I owed her the next day.
Nanzaro had the same dish. He loves it. Continue reading
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
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
On the way home from the Richmond World Festival, we noticed that Wo Fung had opened up a location on Park Road.
The new Wo Fung Noodle House is located at the strip mall behind IHOP on No. 3 Road. It is also in the same area where Kumare is.
Wo Fung was almost full house when we arrived. Luckily, we do not have to wait long for a table, just a few minutes. The condiments and water are set at a counter for self service.
We had to order their signature chicken wings for snack. They were served piping hot and they were crispy on the outside and the meat was tender. Continue reading
Upon return to Bridgeport, we went to the Richmond Night Market near the River Rock Casino.
The theme for this year is prehistoric park.
The line into the market was very long. So, we bought the zoom pass which is slightly cheaper per entry and the most important factor is we can skip the line. Beware that it’s cash only in the night market.
Since we just had dinner, we only got a snack to try. Nanzaro wanted to had some fries.
He picked the Pho Fries, which is topped with a savory sauce, minced pork, sriracha, beansprout, cilantro and red onion. This is $7.50. Continue reading
Lorna and I picked up a pretzel from Mr. Pretzels for snack while we were in Richmond Center.
My family used to get this type of soft pretzel from Metrotown a long time ago.
The pretzels are made at the spot.
We had the Parmesan pretzel which is in the savoury list of pretzel. It was quite messy eating the pretzel as the toppings kept falling off but it was good.
After lunch at Kung Fu Noodle, Arkensen wanted to get a bubble tea from the Parker Place Foodcourt.
He went to the stall called Break because the menu is most readable.
He had a Coffee Milk Tea at $3.75 and an addition of tapioca for an extra 50cents.
Break offers a loyalty stamp card where your 10th purchase will be free.
You can click on the menu to have a larger view.
Break accepts cash only.
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
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.
We ordered a bowl of noodle to share since I was not hungry. The noodle was slightly spicy and quite a big serving.
There were generous amount of beef tribe and tendon. Continue reading
Ben and I went out for a meal on a Sunday with Arkensen as Nanzaro was out with his friends.
We went to Central at Garden City. Arkensen picked Thai Son for comfort food.
Thai Son was quite busy when we arrived.
Arkensen ordered the No. 1 house special (Pho Dac Biet). Both of us felt that it was bland. Continue reading
