Good Chinese New Year Festive Cakes? - Howabout 'Judy's Cuisine'!!

Charles Yu Jan 20, 2014 09:47 AM

Yesterday, I had another enjoyable casual family dinner at Richmond Hill's Judy's Cuisine. Quality of their wok-hay stirred fry still maintained a consistently high standard. IMHO, their stirred fry beef and free range chicken dishes must rank amongst the best in the GTA.

During dinner, I was introduced to their seasonal collection of ' Fresh, daily made ' Chinese New Year Festive Cakes. Savory Turnips and Taro ones plus the sweet and chewy red dates ' Lin-Go ' New Year cake. At $8 a piece sans tax, they were cheaper than most of their competitors. No harm trying?!

At first glance, I was impressed by the cake size and generous amount of diced Chinese preserved meat topping. After trying a few today, I was very satisfied with the product. Lots of turnips filling, nice consistency and texture ( not mushy at all ) and staying intact after shallow frying.

I would say, value-wise, its better than the Luculus, Richmond Court and most restaurants in the area.

    Hey Charles,

    Did they also have special packages with the various cakes? Did you feel pressured to buy?

      Plain packing with plastic lids. Nothing elaborate!. No pressure tactics at all.
