Authentic Hong Kong style food in Richond

OrangeL99 Aug 3, 2008 02:05 PM

Los Angeles hound coming to Richmond, BC in Sept. The main purpose of my trip to try really good authentic Hong Kong style food. I will stay for 3 days in Richmond near Bridgeport and No. 3 road. I won't have a car. Since there is not many Hong Kong style food in Los Angeles, I am really excited to try authentic Hong Kong style food in Richmond. I have put together some places based on prior Chowhound post and my friend's comment. Is there any other recommendation? What do you think of the choice below?

Dim Sum - Kirin or Shiang Garden or Neptune?

Congee (minced beef) and plain rice noodle roll with hoy sin sauce and peanut sauce(Cheung Fan) - Lam Chu Kee or Wah Yuen Noodle House inside Yahan?

Baked pork chop rice and Wife cake - Kam Do Restaurant

Chicken wing - Food court in Aberdeen Center

Chicken egg ball (egg ball waffle) and imitation shark fin soup - Any food court in Richmond. Any special place plaza foodcourt?

Hot Pot - Sun Tung Kee

Egg Custard and pineapple bun with butter and milk tea - Lido Restaurant

Asian - Troprika

Sushi - Richmond sushi or Shota?

    I would consider Sea Harbour for dim sum. Your choices are good.

    All the other choices seem reasonable. Mui Garden is another good choice for HK Singapore/Malaysian. I'm not too familiar with the rest of the items.

      Thank you for the additional choices. I'll definitely add to my list. But I'll pass on XLB restaurants since there is a very good one call Ding Tai Fung in Los Angeles already.

        Yes indeed Din Tai Fung is the benchmark for XLB.

      Richmond Sushi or Shota? I assume you meant all you can eat. I'll go with Ninkazu / Tomokazu Japanese Restaurant. It is on the second level on a strip mall beside Aberdeen Centre.

      205-4231 Hazelbridge Way, Richmond

      For real Japanese, the following are good options:

      Nan Chuu

      Your list for Dim Sum, wife cake and Hot Pot looks pretty good. I am not familiar with the rest of the items. Tropika is good for HK-Style Singapore/Malaysian food.

        I'm glad someone agree with my choices. Do these real Japanese restaurants serve good sashimi?

          Sashimi is pretty good at both Seto and Torarenbo. Nan Chuu is an izakaya, so the sashimi selection is pretty limited.

            If you decide to go to Torarenbo, know that there is very good XLB nearby at Chen's (at Parker Village).

              Many a times, I will be heading to Torarenbo, but after parking my car, I ended up at Chen's :)

              Speaking of proximity, Nan Chuu is literally next to Kam Do, and Seto is across the street.
