Dim sum on carts in Vancouver proper?

  • 68
  • Share

We are looking for a carts dimsum place for a group of eight on a Saturday at 11 am, where two have only been for dimsum once before (at Golden Ocean with us!). Needs to be in Vancouver itself because of centrality for attendees (sadly, that leaves out the many great Richmond options). Has anyone been to Flamingo on Fraser lately? We used to enjoy the Fraser Street outpost but Golden Ocean has replaced it, partly because of location. TIA.

    2. Doesn't the Main Street Sun Sui Wah have carts? I know that the Richmond doesn't anymore, but haven't been to Main St in a while.

        The SSW on Main St had carts last time I was there (almost exactly one year ago now).

        1. re: toutefrite

          SSW has carts. went 2 weeks ago.

          1. re: el_lobo_solo

            So far we have:

            Sun Sui Wah on Main
            Golden Ocean
            Flamingo (we think)
            Golden Swan

              1. re: grayelf

                I've been meaning to do a cart dim sum list now that carts seems are quickly becoming extinct.

                I'm fairly sure these restaurants still use carts:

                Sun Sui Wah, Main (confirmed upthread)
                Golden Swan
                Pink Pearl
                Golden Phoenix (This is my go-to place since it is close by - carts only come out on weekends I think)


                I have not been to most of these in the last year, so I don't know if the particular restos are still using carts:

                Wong Gok
                International Chinese Restaurant
                King's Garden
                Dai Tung

                1. re: fmed

                  Just to clarify, Sun Sui Wah (Main St.) did not have carts when I was there on a weekday, but it sounds like you should be OK on the weekend.

                  1. re: waver

                    So I'm combining the lists from upthread and adding where and when carts appear -- probably best to reconfirm if you have a particular target in your crosshairs :-):

                    carts on weekends only:
                    Sun Sui Wah on Main (confirmed by phone May 2/08, they take resos)

                    Carts all week:
                    Golden Ocean (confirmed by phone May 2/08)
                    Flamingo (closed Tuesday, will take resos on w'ends, confirmed May 2/08)
                    Golden Swan (confirmed by phone May 2/08, no resos)
                    Pink Pearl (confirmed by phone May 2/08, they take resos)
                    Golden Phoenix (confirmed by phone May 2/08, they take resos)
                    Szechuan Chongqing on Broadway (confirmed by phone May 2/08, they take resos)
                    International Chinese Restaurant (confirmed by phone May 2/08, they take resos)
                    Dai Tung (confirmed by phone May 2/08, no resos)

                    Other updates:
                    Wong Gok is now called Resting Lake and doesn't have carts or $2 dim sum anymore, but I read it may be being run by Golden Swan's old chef so might be worth a look, fmed.
                    King's Garden: no carts anymore

                    That's not a bad list but we should keep adding if anyone else knows of any more of these disappearing treasures in Vancouver proper!

          2. International Chinese Restaurant on Hastings St which confusingly seems to have two names (it also had a sign calling the place Chinese Seafood Restaurant or something like that).

            Wednesday for lunch - half-full, 4 carts and 2 managers roaming the floor. Very traditional dim sum - nothing even remotely fusiony or creative. Full of old-timers. I like the ambiance which comes from a subdued acoustics from a carpeted floor (not shrill, clangy like many tile floored dimsum places).

            Food is OK...old-school.

            2. Golden Phoenix near Nanaimo and 1st Ave. This is my family's "go-to" dim sum place mainly because we live close by.

              It is a clean well appointed restaurant with very good service, attentive staff and fast cart and tray turnarounds. The dim sum is also very good - a good selection of traditional items (eg, siu mai, har gao, etc) and an excellent selection of contemporary and modern items. For example, they had wasabi and shrimp spring rolls, deep fried silver fish, spot prawns done a multitude of ways (it is spot prawn season currently), a series of interesting steamed constructions, a whole slew of interesting glutinous rice-based sweets.....etc.

              Many the items coming out on the trays are not on the dim sum menu as far as I can tell. You can just sit back and wait for the next surprise.

              The prices are good - the low range starts out at around $2.50 with the bulk of the items sitting at the $3.25 and $4.25 range.

              Golden Phoenix also specializes in soups....they have some uncommon sounding soupy items on that menu. I have not yet tried any of them.

              Today, Saturday at around 11am, they had one cart lady, 3 tray ladies and 3 managers. There were only two of us in our party and one is my light-eating daughter - so I couldn't partake in many of the interesting items. We had the sweet rice balls, chicken and wolfberries, dried tofu skin roll, shrimp and wasabi spring roll, steamed shrimp with dried scallop, deep fried spicy squid (my daughter's favourite). We had plenty of leftovers.

              I highly recommend this place...great bang for the buck. It's a bit of a neighborhood secret, but the last time this neighborhood tried to keep a secret at this location...the restaurant went out of business...the great and lamented Green Village Shanghai restaurant.

                  Had to try it out myself, a nice little spot indeed though a bit out of the way for me not living in that part of town. A very cozy place, can see why its a neighborhood secret. I didn't get as adventurous with the choices as you did fmed, but had a decent sampling of the usual suspects and then some. Thanks for the introduction to the dying breed of cart dim sum joints in YVR.

                  1. re: shoku_tsu

                    I'm glad you had a good meal there. I'm lucky to have a very good dim sum place within walking distance. I notice that business is good - so I'm thinking they will stick around for a while. The whole operation seems to run pretty professionally.

                    I have some pics from more recent visits here:

                    I read your blog - fantastic.

                    1. re: fmed

                      Great to see the other dishes that one can have here - I didn't see any of those on your Picasa site come by our table. :( Maybe next time...

                      1. re: shoku_tsu

                        They seem to have a creative chef back in the kitchen. The tray ladies often carry out random unusual dishes. This is one good reason to keep cart/tray service around - for that element of surprise.

                        1. re: fmed

                          Interesting. And definitely a good point about the need for pleasant 'surprises" like this that only carts/trays can provide...

                2. Imperial downtown has carts.

                  1. This was a discussion during our trip to Canada. Half the family like carts the other like to order off the sheets.

                    On the carts side if you do not know was is available at a teahouse then you get to see the cart and will miss less. Like Sun Sui Wah on Main Street in Vancouver.

                    If you are a regular at the tea house then you will know what you like and you get it fresh out of the steamer when you order off the sheet. Like Sun Sui Wah in the Richmond.

                    I am a regular at a few place in the Bay Area and the head waiter tell me of new dishes and offerings of the chef.

                    So we never agreed on which is better. Our focus turn to eating and we soon forgot about the subject.

                    1. re: yimster

                      I like both. Carts are probably more fun for the kids and the dim sum newbie.

                      I tend to over-order at cart places but not at sheet places. It all looks so enticing on carts.

                      1. re: fmed

                        Carts are fun and old school, but fewer and fewer places have them. I like sheets b/c the food always comes out hot. With carts, you have to get a strategically placed table, otherwise it's game over. Bad table = lukewarm food. Not the case with ordering off sheets. But on the other hand, ordering luo buo gao (radish cake) off a sheet isn't the same as watching it get fried in front of you.

                        1. re: im_hungry

                          One thing I like about the Sun Sui Wah on Main (other places may have this too) is the combination of carts and a la minute. I love the whole process of the carts -- maybe it's a flashback to going with the 'rents when I was a kiddly -- but it's also great to saunter over and order something from one of the griddlin' tables to be prepared for you on the spot. Best of both worlds?

                          My beef about the sheets is that even for a non-newbie it can be confusing to order either from descriptions or pictures. Example: we ended up with shiu mai in SF because of a misleading pic and a very misleading description. Not that this was the end of the world, of course, but with the carts you know exactly what you're getting. I guess I like kickin' it old school :-).

                          It is still there. I was a regular stop fifteen years ago before we found that there were better. But still the last time we want eight years ago it was a hang out for the old timers.

                          It was good old school dim sum not the fancy new stuff. Walked by it a two weeks age should have stop and tried it.

                                    Solid old school Dim Sum. Hasn't changed since I was here last(8yrs ago) Would recommend trying again. Large portions and low priced. We were the only people of European descent there.

                                Wong Gok is now called Resting Lake and doesn't have carts or $2 dim sum anymore, but I read it may be being run by Golden Swan's old chef so might be worth a look, fmed.

                                  Probably nearly time for a full update but for now a mini: looks like Park Lock has locked its doors (sorry for the bad pun) which is a shame as it is a bit of a landmark.

                                      Too bad, I had some good stuff in the day. I remember it was cheap, hot and filling. But it did not keep up with the trends from Hong Kong and other places had better food, settings and service.

                                      Old Vancouver Chinatown has been by passed by Richmond. In fact I only stop at two stores in Vancouver now.

                                      Oh really, that's a real shame. Not that I've gone there in 15+ years but I remember it fondly as a kid. Was always messy and noisy and rollicking good fun with the whole extended family covering 2 tables.

                            3. Thanks for this thread. My group wants carts. Pink Pearl has been recommended to us because of its location. I'm a bit concerned because there isn't any comment on their food anywhere on this thread. Thoughts?

                              Non cart-wise: I enjoyed a quick, solo drop-by at Kirin. We've also been directed to the resto in the Hyatt's lower level - Victoria??

                                Glad to be of service! You may notice that the quality is less the focus here than cart availability. My sense of Pink Pearl, both from past personal experience and reading around, is that it is not really a destination dim sum option. I stopped going because of the egregious lines and the less-than-topnotch food. Can you expand on why that location is good for you? It is in fact somewhat out of the way and not really in the greatest part of town, so unless you are staying with friends nearby it seems we could offer you better options... Perhaps you should start a new thread?

                                1. re: Lydia R

                                  Echoing what grayelf has said about Pink Pearl. It used to be my family's go-to dim sum place, but the overall quality dropped some years ago. It still has legions of fans, however.

                                  Victoria is pretty average and pricey.

                                    Update: Flamingo on Fraser is no more, replaced by Fraser Court which on a speedy driveby looked to be still Chinese but no idea if they do dimsum let alone on carts...

                                                  Thank you for keeping this list fairly updated. We're visiting Vancouver this month for a week and we definitely want to have dim sum at least a couple of times. I'd like to try one in downtown (where we'll be staying) and one in Richmond. Carts are a must for us as I just love that traditional ambiance and they keep my young kids entertained.

                                                  For those with recent experience with the downtown cart places (or Richmond -- but I'll check other threads for that), which one would be considered the best in each city?

                                                  For background, I grew up in California and, as a child, our family used to have dim sum several times a month. But as an adult who spent almost a decade in the midwest, dim sum has become more of a rare treat. We love the good traditional items and enjoy some new style items as well. My son loves the "phoenix claws"(?) -- the stewed chicken feet -- so any place we go must offer that.

                                                  1. re: Scotch

                                                    You're welcome! Here's another to add to Vancouver: East #1 Seafood 2800 East 1st (604) 255-0008; 9-3 everyday; resos okaythough I haven't seen strong recs for it (see Sherman's write up here)

                                                    http://www.shermansfoodadventures.com...

                                                    I haven't found any dim sum on carts downtown, though there are still two in Chinatown. I haven't been to Garden Villa and it's been a hundred years since I went to Floata so no help on quality from me.

                                                    I can't remember a dim sum place I've been to that didn't have chicken feet, even if it wasn't on the menu/cart, I'm sure you could order it.

                                                    My favourite cart place remains Golden Ocean (in a neighbourhood called Kerrisdale, halfway between downtown and Richmond). All the classics well excecuted, a few "newer" items, and very consistent. Plus it is 20% off if you are seated before 11 am and they serve dim sum daily, with reservations available.

                                    2. Not at all the same! Flamingo was an institution in the hood. The Ocean is specifically menu oriented and if you are not familiar with anything other than the regular dim sum dishes you will be ordering blind. The staff was not very helpful, in fact it seemed that it was an intrusion upon them to get dishes on the menu explained. Paying the bill was a totally different matter as many customers behind me were taken care of before me! Will not be returning!

                                        Cucinelle, I'm all confoozled. Are you talking about Fraser Court (or whatever the heck it's called) that took over from Flamingo.?

                                      2. Mini update/correction: somewhere on here I said I hadn't found any carts in downtown but Imperial did have them, so my bad.

                                        Szechuan Chonqing still has carts but the prices have gone up drastically. A Hound and I went for lunch recently and it was $25 each, $10 more than I had been used to spending there for a similar amount of food.

                                        Do be sure to call first before you go to anywhere listed on this thread as things change so quickly.
