Master Jia Braised Food at Crystal Mall Foodcourt, Burnaby

Crystal Mall foodcourt is our favourite place to have an early lunch after church service. We attended the early service which ends around 10:30am. We usually have coffee after the church service in the church before we head out to Crystal Mall.

We arrive at the food court just after 11:00 am. It is just perfect timing before the rush lunch hour. Getting a seat is a problem at all at this time.

We decided to try the Master Jia Braised Food instead of our favourite spicy noodle from Chao Shou Wang.

Ben got the Spicy Pork Feet to share. I think it is $12. There is generous portion of pork which has a hint of spiciness. The item beside the pork is tofu puff. (more…)

Healthy Soyfoods in Crystal Mall

Ben and I often go to Crystal Mall for lunch after church service as we love the ethnic food in the foodcourt.

We love this Healthy Soyfoods stall on the ground floor at the market place. There is a line most of the time.

The soy pudding came in a huge pot.

The above is the savoury version i.e. gravy with egg and mushroom. This tub is $2. We enjoy every drop of it. The soy pudding was silky smooth. (more…)

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. (more…)

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. (more…)

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. (more…)

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. (more…)
