Chow-worthy spots near the Canada Line (Richmond)?
I was happily pottering around the food courts of the Aberdeen, President's Plaza and Yaohan malls yesterday when it occurred to me that I am probably not the only person who: a) doesn't live in Richmond; b) doesn't much like driving; and c) really REALLY doesn't like driving in Richmond. So, I thought I'd have a shot at starting a list of chow-worthy places close to the Canada line stations (by which I mean within a couple of blocks, although I'd be willing to consider places a little farther out if particularly chow-worthy...). Here's what I've come up with so far.
-- Aberdeen Mall (Fisherman's Terrace, Chef Hung, Wo Fung, ...)
-- President's Plaza (O'Tray, dumpling guy in the corner )
-- Yaohan Centre (not really sure what's good in the food court, but the Osaka Mkt is fun)
-- S&W Pepper House
As I am very much of a Richmond newbie, any additions would be much appreciated. Also feel free to add spots near the skytrain or near the Canada line in Vancouver ...
S&W Pepper House
4500 Kingsway #1812, Burnaby V5H 2A9, CA
To add to the list which was predominantly Chinese eats, there are several noteworthy Filipino eateries along the Brighouse Station.
- Cucina Manila (Cook Road - Filipino Fastfood)
- Newtown Bakery (Cook Road -- Special siopao)
- Aling Mary (Park Road - Hot Pan de Sal)
- Kumare Cafe & Bakery (Soon to open on Park Road, - Filipino bakery and cafe/eatery).
re: À la carte
Great additions. The list isn't complete by all means. HKBBQM is a favourite for me. The Filipino spots are also really good additions.
Also to note that some of these places are closed or have declined in quality. Off the top of my head...Closed are:
-Szechwan Restaurant (Sichuan, Saba Rd) (Now "Northern Chinese Cuisine" serving Shandong and Dong Bei)
-Bonqula (Japanese fusion, Alexandra Rd)
I should add places like Kam Do (is the one on Three Rd open yet?), other HK Cafes and the Tawainese restaurants in an around the area. May do that when I have time.
