New Maple Wonton (aka Ho Tak Kee) up in flames--Vancouver

el_lobo_solo Dec 25, 2009 10:51 PM

This area of Broadway-Kingsway-Main hasn't had much luck recently as another fire engulfed a number of businesses this Christmas day, including New Maple Wonton. Although the quality has gone down recently, I'll always remember it as Ho Tak Kee with the great wonton, bbq'd meats, young chow fried rice and a bustling atmosphere in years past.

    Wow, what's going on in that neighbourhood? So many fires recently at local restaurants.

      I have very fond memories of the BBQ Duck at Ho Tak Kee.

        =======================

        My guess is (relatively) old poorly maintained buildings.

        Argh...I have very fond memories of congee and wonton noodles as a kid at Ho Tak Kee. Another one bites the dust...sigh...
