勝意食館 Sing Yee Chinese Restaurant Richmond is a casual family owned restaurant where you come here for congee, noodles, comfort Chinese food. The restaurant is clean, bright and simple. Located in Continental Plaza on the far side facing Cambie Road, Sing Yee Richmond neighbors with Deer Garden Signature, Gyo-O Kaisen Shokudo Japanese, Pearl Castle, Dragon View Chinese Cuisine and Yuu Japanese Tapas.
Service is prompt and the food arrives quickly. I found myself here on most lunch hours for a bowl of congee and some salt and pepper deep fried tofu.
Congee with Fish Slices: Creamy, smooth and velvety. It is not watery nor burnt. It always like to get their watercress with mince dace fish paste , fresh fish slices or salted pork with century egg.
Salt and Pepper Deep Fried Tofu: Can be tricky at times, some restaurants uses chili paste and toss it a few times and tofu is soggy. Sing Yee is crispy with minced garlic, jalapenos, onions and salt and pepper.
Dry Beef Pan Fried Rice Noodles: Unlike some places that tend to drown this traditionally comfort dish in oil, Sing Yee does it pretty well. It is easy on the oil, yet there is a lot of heat from the wok.
Daily Special Veggies – Baby Bok Choy: Fresh. Lightly seasoned with salt and garlic.
Beef Brisket with Noodles: This was bit of a let down. The flavors were bland and the sauce was thin and watery. The brisket itself was somewhat dry, chewy and not as tender as I’d like.
Singapore Spicy Rice Noodles 星洲炒米: A good spicy curry flavored dry tossed rice vermicelli with a medley of shrimps, bells peppers, bbq pork etc.
Salt and Pepper Eggplant: Most people won’t think of ordering eggplants deep fried and tossed in S&P, but it is actually very tasty. The juiciness and the freshness of the eggplant balances the heat of the S&P. Crunchy exterior and a soft center.
Braised Fatty Pork Belly: Tender and juicy soaked in all the natural goodness of pickled vegetables, five spice, soy, rice wine and other marinating sauces.
