Mr. Chili Noodle House Hot & Sour Potato Vermicelli

Mr. Chili Noodle House

The other day I was channeling the mantra of “Do one thing a day that scares you”. I decided to get a AXKA voucher for a meal for one to Mr Chili Noodle House and headed there for a lunch date with myself. With the voucher ($9.99) you get to pick from 3 noodle dishes, […]

Private Home Chinese Cuisine 一点心意

Having moved out of Richmond for a while now, I must admit, I really miss the quality and quantity of good Asian restaurants within the city.  Now, when I want good Shanghai or Szechuan food, I have to drive across the bridge to get it and time my way back just so I won’t get […]

Macau Cafe at Parker Place 澳門街

Once in a while, I get a hankering for some good old Hong Kong comfort food.  These foods come in the form of fried noodles, congee, baked spaghetti, etc., just a smorgasbord of items all accompanied by ice-cold Hong Kong style milk tea, coffee, or a mix of both (a wonderful invention from my culture).  […]

Wild Rice – The Good, The Bad, and The Meh

Wendy’s been spending a bit of time down at the River Market at New Westminster Quay, and with me not having been at all yet we decided to go for dinner at Wild Rice.  I vaguely remembered having heard good things about Wild Rice restaurant, and I know it serves fairly healthy food, so it […]

Little Garden Chinese Cuisine 十里香 -Bellevue, WA

Many times when I visit Aunt Aggy and Uncle Walken in the States, they take me to new restaurants they’ve discovered.  This time, they took mom and I to Little Garden, a mixed Chinese restaurant in Bellevue.  I say “mixed” because they offer Shanghai style, Hunan style, Szechuan style; all different styles of Chinese food. […]

Beggar’s Chicken @ Suhang Restaurant 蘇杭人家

Going way, way back to our Mid-Autumn Festival family celebration, Hitman and I had dinner with my parents and relatives at Suhang Restaurant. It was his first time for Shanghainese food. The draw for me was that my uncle had pre-ordered the Beggar’s Chicken and I was excited to see and try it.  I hadn’t […]

Late Night @ Congee Noodle King Seafood Restaurant

After an evening downtown I had a congee craving so Wendy suggested we try Congee Noodle King Seafood Restaurant, an unassuming Chinese place along Kingsway that does a late night menu.  The menu is quite varied and has three tiers priced at $5.35, $6.45, and $6.95. We ordered a Plain Congee (Large) ($5.35) and it […]

Mr. Ho Wonton House

When it gets really cold I always crave a hot bowl of pho.  Last night was no exception.  But somehow we ended up at Mr. Ho Wonton House.  How did that happen??  Well blame me and my trait of easily distractedness.  As Hitman and I were going along Kingsway I got distracted by the neon […]

Dinner at Golden Sea City Restaurant: Snake Soup Starter!

Wendy’s parents recommended this restaurant for a recent family dinner since it’s one of her and Wendy’s favourite dim sum spots (see Wendy’s review here –sad to say that apparently they no longer have the food carts though).  I wasn’t planning on a review since it had already been done…until I saw an especially interesting […]
