Chinese Braised Beef Brisket & Tendon Recipe | 柱侯蘿蔔炆牛筋腩

Grand River Seafood Restaurant Coquitlam | 濠江尚品海鮮酒家

Grand River Seafood Restaurant Coquitlam | 濠江尚品海鮮酒家

Grand River Seafood Restaurant 濠江尚品海鮮酒家 is a Chinese restaurant located in Coquitlam (next to Silvercity Cineplex Cinemas) on 100 Schoolhouse Street. This is another humble restaurant with minimal decor. This restaurant offers dim sum lunch service as well as seafood dinner (set menus and combos available). We’ve been here several times and consistency is an issue. Food quality is not always up to par.

 

Fish slice congee: watery and not a lot of ingredients. The congee base is not pillowy like Neptune Wonton and does not have the fresh fish taste like Eastern Pearl in Port Coquitlam.

 

Dim Sum option here at Grand River is not bad however. There are a lot of choices – some other Chinese restaurants in Tri-Cities does not have.

 

Deep Fried Bean Curd Shrimp Roll

 

Rice Roll with Chinese Donut and Shrimp Paste.

 

Three Mushroom Rice Rolls

 

Shrimp Dumplings

 

Curry Baby Octopus

 

Steamed Bean Curd Roll

 

Pineapple Bun BBQ Pork Bun

 

Deep Fried Sesame Balls: This is one of my favorite desserts here.

 

Not to confuse you, not Coquitlam has a Chinese restaurants all with the name “Grand”.

Neptune Chinese Kitchen Coquitlam | 鳳鳴粥麵 Hard Rock Casino

Neptune Chinese Kitchen Coquitlam | 鳳鳴粥麵 Hard Rock Casino

Neptune Chinese Kitchen 鳳鳴粥麵 has been opened a little under a year now at the Hard Rock Casino in Coquitlam on United Boulevard. The restaurant is spacious, baby friendly, bright but a little out of the way from city center. It is usually pretty quiet (something I quite enjoy).  The staff are friendly and welcoming. It has become one of our go to restaurants for a quick bite.

Similar to the other Neptune locations like Mc Arthur Glen outlets, Neptune Chinese Kitchen menu focuses on wonton noodle soup, congee and signature Chinese dishes.

 

Congee: My favorite is Neptune’s congee base. It is pillowy and has a nice consistency unlike here. I usually option for the fish slices or the pig liver congee.

Salt and Pepper Chicken Wings: A small order of wings gets you about 6-7 pieces. Deep fried and covered with garlic and jalapeno bits.

 

Yin Yang Fried Rice: Tomato and Cream sauce based fried rice. It has a good balance of sweet and sour.

 

Braised Fish and Tofu Hot Pot: Sometimes when we don’t feel like having noodle soup, we option of their entree signature dishes. I love how heated their wok is. It makes a difference in the execution of each dish.

 

Deep Fried Bean Curd with Vegetables: When Deer Garden closed down, I was so upset that I couldn’t enjoy one of my favorite dishes in Coquitlam anymore. Luckily, Neptune makes a pretty kick ass version itself. It is light and non-greasy.

 

The prices at Neptune are a little expensive. Dinner for two could set you back $50 if you want to order noodle soups along with a few snack side dishes. I hope this place gets a little busier and will last. I would hate to see it close down due to a lack of traffic. Coquitlam has been dying for a wonton noodle restaurant!

Yuan’s Shanghai Serendipity Cuisine Richmond | 源

Yuan’s Shanghai Serendipity Cuisine Richmond | 源

The name only is a mouthful Yuan’s Shanghai Serendipity Cuisine Richmond 源. This Shanghai restaurant is located beside Deluxe Chinese Restaurant 凯悦酒家 next to Aberdeen Mall. We were told how delicious their pan fried soup dumplings were and decided we must go check it out.

 

The restaurant itself is bright and open with some resemblance to Old Shanghai (except the blue velvet chairs).Big open display windows so we can all watch the chefs in action.

 

Service is mediocre and could be friendlier. Sometimes, the servers won’t bother explaining a dish if you had a question and just walks away.

Steamed Soup Dumplings: Pretty standard Xiao Long Bao with a juicy but very forgettable soup base. The meat was borderline mushy.

 

Pan Fried Soup Dumplings: Again nothing special to rave about. The skin was thinner than some other restaurants but the center filling again was pretty standard if not bland. At this point we were pretty puzzled why we were told such amazing things about their Steamed/Pan Fried Soup Dumplings.

 

Spicy Mouth Watering Chicken: The name of the dish is a bit misleading. Normally this is one of my favorite dishes to order at a Shanghai restaurant. The begin, the chicken was very boney. Little meat was there. There were lots of broken bones so be very careful. The sauce was overwhemingly spicy with little balance between sweetness and spices.

 

Shanghai Wonton: Wonton chicken soup enough to share

 

Hot and Sour Soup: Overall the flavors of this soup was not bad however they’ve put in way too much corn starch. The soup itself was thick and gloopy and not very enjoyable.

 

Beef Wrap: Again, another disappointing execution of a fairly basic dish. The beef wrap was dry. The filling majority was sliced cucumber with very little beef. The beef that was there was quite dry and flavorless.

 

Overall, we were quite disappointed with our experience here at Yuan’s Shanghai Serendipity Cuisine and will not return. For the price point I would have expected more than mediocre. There are far better restaurants in Richmond than to visit Yuan’s.

Stir Fry Okra Black Fungus Recipe | 秋葵炒雲耳

Stir Fry Okra Black Fungus Recipe | 秋葵炒雲耳

STIR FRY OKRA BLACK FUNGUS RECIPE CHINESE FOOD Nomss.com Delicious Food Photography Healthy Travel Lifestyle

One of my favorite vegetables is Okra. I love the texture, the nutritional benefits and also how easy it is to prepare. I recently had this dish at a Chinese restaurant over dim sum and absolutely feel in love with it. Stir Fry Okra Black Fungus Recipe 秋葵炒雲耳 is super easy to make and can be done in 10 mins with maybe 15 min prep time.

 

Health Benefits Of Okra

Okra has a lot of nutritional benefits and it is great for diabetes. It has the ability to lower total cholesterol levels, blood pressure and also improve digestive health. Okra contains potassium, vitamin B, vitamin C, folic acid, and calcium. It’s low in calories and has a high dietary fiber content.

 

Health Benefits Of Black Tremella Fungus 雲耳 

Another favorite Chinese herbal ingredient of mine is the black tremella fungus 雲耳 (sometimes also referred to Jew’s ear or Judas Ear). Black Tremella Fungus improves circulation that inhibits blood blotting, lowers cholesterol, dryness in throat, and it is contains trace mineral germanium which has anti-viral / anti-tumor effects.

Aside from okra, black tremella fungus, I usually like to add onions into my stir fry also. To cook this dish, heat up oil on medium heat and sauté minced garlic and ginger. Once sweated out, add in your okra and stir fry for about 3 to 5 minutes.

Next add in your previously soaked black fungus and toss. Next add in dark and light soy sauce and some cornstarch to thicken the sauce. Toss for another 2 minutes until the sauce thickens or evaporates!

Transfer to a serving plate and serve with your favorite Chinese dishes! Yes it is that easy!
