Chinese Beef Brisket Curry in GVRD?
I've just come back from Gloucester Cafe where I had a poor-to-mediocre beef brisket curry. Not only should it be renamed "potato curry with, if you're lucky, beef brisket," but it was really just crap. The sauce is bright yellow, thick, overly creamy, underflavoured, and so heavy -- the beef bits were flavourless as well and didn't taste like brisket at all (which happens to be my favorite cut).
Is there anywhere to get good BBC in VAn/Richmond? I tried the one at Mui Garden and found it similarly mediocre. I feel so heavy and bloated after eating 1/2 of the portion served.
I suspect most places are using a standard pre-made sauce as they all look and taste the same, and definitely do not taste fresh.
Any ideas? I love this dish when done correctly.

Great question. My personal fave is a coconut milk-heavy version without the doping of tumeric. Recently I had a good one at i-Cafe. But yeah, I'd love to hear what others recommend.
I recall having a pretty decent one at the curry kiosk at the Yaohan in Richmond, but that was quite awhile ago.
I've had the Prawn as well as the Chicken Curry at Deer Garden (Coquitlam) and it's pretty good. Haven't tried their Beef Brisket version although i would imagine it would be similar.
