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). […]

Grand Seasons Coquitlam | 四季 Chinese Restaurant

Fortune Terrace Chinese Cuisine RICHMOND | 福滿樓海鮮酒家 Richmond Oval

Fortune Terrace Chinese Cuisine RICHMOND | 福滿樓海鮮酒家 Richmond Oval

Fortune Terrace Chinese Cuisine 福滿樓海鮮酒家 is a high-end Chinese seafood restaurant located in Richmond by the Richmond Oval – next to Ora a large scale residential community with T&T Supermarket. The restaurant is spacious with a large screen projection screen (perfect for weddings). Service is friendly and was not pretentious.

There is a good variety of dim sum selection on the menu: steamed, deep fried, marinated, braised and plenty of specialty items. Channeling Yum Cha HK, they’ve even got those super cute Boas with eyes and pig faces!

It’s not often you see grown men and women playing with their food! Of course, this salty egg yolk bun was soft and moist with a creamy center filling.

Steamed Shrimp Dumplings: Although it was $9 per order, there was five pieces. Thin skin and has a bouncy mouthfeel. There was nothing to complain about these Ha Gaws.

Deep Fried Mince Pork Dumplings: A like the gelatinous dough with a salty center of minced pork. The portions were a little small and leaves you begging for more.

 

Steamed Beef Balls

 

Special Steamed Rice Rolls with Tofu, Scallops and Eggplant: Not exactly a “roll” but this was one of our favourite dishes. The filling is tasty but is hard to share if you have more than four people.

Steamed Marinated Beef Tripe: I like the marinated flavours of stay and jalapeno. The tripe is soft and tender.

 

Truffle Siu Mai: These bite size pork dumplings has a mild taste of truffle that is not too over-powering.

Snow Pea Tips: Served with consomme and lots of dried shrimp.

 

Fortune Terrace has a few hits and misses but has a good variety of dishes. We like to come here for yum cha since it is close to work and there are plenty of free parking underground. Price point is on the higher end, but it isn’t over the top when you compare other newer Chinese restaurants in the area.

DEER GARDEN SIGNATURES PORT COQUITLAM | 鹿園魚湯米線 Noodles

DEER GARDEN SIGNATURES PORT COQUITLAM | 鹿園魚湯米線 Noodles

Deer Garden Signatures 鹿園魚湯米線 finally reopened yesterday (replacing Deer Garden Restaurant 鹿園茶餐廳). Although it was sad to see our go to restaurant in PoCo close down, many welcome the casual selection of rice noodle combos, curry dishes, and HK style cafe approach.

The interior went thru a major overhaul. It looks much cleaner, brighter and spacious.

 

Similar to the other Deer Garden locations, the Port Coquitlam branch also allows for a lot of customizations. Starting at 11.25, the noodle combos include soup base, toppings, noodles and a drink (cold drink +$1; specialty drink $+2).

 

Tomatoes and pumpkins fish soup with sliced beef, bean curd and mushrooms: Deer Garden boasts that their soup base is without MSG. I’ll let you be the judge of that.

I really missed the old Deer Garden but when this, this and this opened – Tri-Cities dining scene got a little more competitive.

Snackshot Vancouver | 糖百府 Hong Kong Style Dessert Granville

Snackshot Vancouver | 糖百府 Hong Kong Style Dessert Granville

Snackshot Vancouver Granville Hong Kong Style Dessert Nomss.com Delicious Food Photography Healthy Travel Lifestyle

Snackshot 糖百府 is a new Hong Kong style dessert shop that recently opened on 7980 Granville Street – Marpole neighbourhood. The menu focus is Chinese sweet soups along with their claim to fame Vitasoy milk red bean bulldog drink! And, of course, the sweet soup tasting platter!

 

The dessert shop’s decor retrofits to the nostalgic Bing Sutt 冰室, old school movie posters and things that are quintessentially Hong Kong. It reminds me lots of the Vintage Starbucks in Hong Kong – both on Duddell Street and Mong Kok.

Vitasoy Milk with Red Bean Bulldog 7.95: This eye-catching drink is traditionally known as red bean ice. It is made trendy again with a bottle of vitasoy dressed up as a Mexican Bulldog. I like that it isn’t too sweet and actually is quite tasty. However there isn’t a lot of red bean. And it is debatable if this drink is worth the sticker shock of 7.95.

 

Snackshot Vancouver Granville Hong Kong Style Dessert Nomss.com Delicious Food Photography Healthy Travel Lifestyle

Sweet Soup Tasting Platter 22.95: Your choice of either hot or cold. This photogenic dessert platter again is another popular item ordered. It consists of nine mini cups of sweet soup (from top to bottom): Cashew Paste, Red Date and Longan Soup, Almond Paste, Sesame Paste, Tofu Pudding, Red Bean Soup, Green Bean Soup, Black Glutinous Dessert and Walnut Paste.

This is a great option for those who want to sample a little bit of everything. There was only a few that stood out and personally I much prefer the dessert soups at Bubble Fruity 桂花林 in Richmond. Overall, I think the flavors here at Snackshot are underwhelming and the texture is too gummy.

Street Snack Combo 6.95: We also ordered a combo of curry fish balls, siu mai and rice rolls. It comes with 4 siu mai and 4 curry fish balls. Again, the flavors are unforgettable and the plate of not hot enough. I also wish they had provided chili paste on the side.

 

Overall, the prices at Snackshot are pretty high and the portions are small. The place is more of a hyped gimmick. We left $40 poorer and I can not foresee coming back anytime soon.
