I can never get enough of Japanese cuisine, whether it be sashimi, ramen, or rice bowls. Anyone else agree with me? So since it was the last day of class of first term of my summer semester, why not celebrate and have a lunch date? I was craving noodles AND Japanese food, so this was the more obvious option. The place was surprisingly not as busy as I thought, but maybe that is because the whole restaurant takes a break for several hours, from around 3-5 pm (correct if I’m wrong), and it was a fairly late lunch since we went around 2pm. Considering that it’s located on Alexandra Road, you would think that it’s street parking, but there is surprisingly a parking lot at the back. However, if you are unlucky and happen to enter at a busy time, then street parking is the only option.

Tai Tung Chinese Seafood Restaurant 大同新派食館

I love having brunch with the family, because it’s something that we don’t get to do often, especially with school and work. So of course we took advantage of the statutory holiday. We decided to not go to our usual place for dimsum, and try something new instead. According to my dad, this restaurant opened about a year ago to expand from their other location in Kingsway. Since my parents haven’t been here in recent years, and my aunt who loves Tai Tung (on Kingsway) is visiting soon, we decided to come here to see if it is good enough to bring her here as oppose to the Kingsway location. The dishes are categorized as S (small), M (medium), L (large), and SP (special), each with their own specific price.

For those living in Richmond, Tai Tung is just over the Arthur Laing Bridge, which isn’t too far at all. However, being that it is on Granville, only street parking is available, which may be scarce if it’s busy.

I love coming to Wo Fung for fast Chinese food, like noodles and deep fried chicken wings, and what’s not to love when it’s super cheap? Although it’s cramped in there, the place always seems to be full, especially during lunch/dinner hours. You know it’s a fast place just by walking in, which is good when you are in a rush. You can get soup noodles, or just munch on some snacks, but be warned, most of the snacks are deep-fried. Not healthy, but oh so delicious!  (more…)

Hello, awesome people! I know, I have been slacking on the updates, but I promise I will start updating regularly since I am officially off school. Don’t worry, I already got a few places lined up. First up being Gyo-O. I didn’t know this before, but Gyo-O and Gyoza King are sister restaurants. For those who have been to Gyoza King, let me know if it’s any good!
