Burnaby CUISINE / RESTAURANT REVIEWS Food Court Taiwanese

Red Persimmon Taiwanese Cuisine

Despite the horrible parking conditions at Crystal Mall, it is still one of my favorite places to go for lunch when I’m at work.  It’s a good thing we always have lunch early so the conditions aren’t TOO too bad.

There’s so many options here that I find it hard to choose a place.  Finally I settled on Red Persimmon Taiwanese Cuisine.  This is because I saw something interesting on their menu board.  But more about that later.

Red Persimmon Taiwanese: "Tempura"

L1 also picked something from here.  It’s simply called Tempura in Chinese.  It’s like a Japanese oden but Taiwanese style.  It comes with different pieces of fish cake in soup.  It also comes with 2 dipping sauces, the bigger one kind of tasted like a yam puree to me.  It looked rather small but L1 insists it’s filling enough.

Red Persimmon Taiwanese: "Bowl Cake"

As for what interested me, was this thing called “Bowl Cake” in English.  When people asked me what this is, I had difficulty explaining it.  Basically I guess it’s like a ground rice steamed cake thing.  The best description I have would  be like Chinese steamed turnip/radish cake but without all the mushrooms and dried shrimps and stuff.

Red Persimmon Taiwanese: "Bowl Cake"

It is served with preserved vegetables, ground meat, and a gravy sauce.  It only cost $2 and isn’t very big but it’s very very filling.  I quite enjoyed this and is very very likely to order it again.  It’s so cheap!!
