Vancouver Dim Sum?
We're up here in Vancouver from Los Angeles for the holidays and we're looking for good Chinese food.
Last time we were here we went to a really bad place on Commercial and 12th which had been recommended on one of these boards and were extremely disappointed. We could have been eating in any west side strip mall in LA. Bo Bo chicken and the like. I'd read in an article (Johnathan Gold?) about a dim sum place in LA that beats places in Hong Kong, but can't rival "someplace" in Vancouver. I wish I could remember the name of this legendary Vancouver "someplace" is.
Does anyone have any good guesses or recommendations?
It doesn't have to be dim sum either. If anyone has good places for great Szechuan or Hunan cuisine we'd certainly eat later in the day too :)
actually amongst locals hon's is a bit of a joke , which only attests to the fact that van has the best chinese food on the continent
whoever suggested hon's ..... no comment, that is NOT a recommended place
for dim sum go to richmond, in aberdeen mall there is a restaurant called fisherman's terrace.. make reservations!
or top gun in richmond, 2nd level, on mckim way and garden city
definetly Sun Sui Wah that you are thinking of, constantly wins awards for best chinese and is my personal favorite. actually prefer the location in richmond opposed to the main st. even though it is a bigger trek from vancouver.Imperial is a close 2nd, the scallop dumplings.......never had anything like them.
