I’ve never been to this restaurant before but it seems to be quite well known among Richmondites.
The Pan Fried Oysters with Soya Sauce were recommended on Urbanspoon so we gave it a try. The oysters were delicious but I remember there were expensive for the quantity. I think this plate was around $18.80? Way too expensive.
I think this dish can be easily replicated by buying a bunch of fresh oysters from the supermarket.
The Panfried Egg White with Chopped Scallop ($16.80) was not as delicious as the one from Western Lake but served as a great light filler in between the other fattier dishes.
No matter what Chinese restaurant I’m in, I always like to order Deep Fried Chili and Garlic Pork Chop because of its incredibly addicting (and MSG filled) spices. These were great and oh so garlicy.
This dish was super odd because it did not resemble the description on the menu. I think the name was Deep Fried Stuffed Chicken Wings ($17.80) but it turned out to be little chicken nuggets. We also couldn’t really detect the filling. Nevertheless, it was an okay dish but personally not worth the price we paid.
I really enjoyed this Half Cream and Shrimp Half Tomato Based Fried Rice because it was wet, sloppy, and extremely filling.
Overall, I think this is a decent restaurant for traditional Chinese dishes and I heard they serve squab too so it’s worth it to come here if that’s what you’re looking for. Some dishes were a hit or miss but all in all it was a good experience.
