Mom just came back and it was her first dim sum in Canada this year. I wanted to take her to my favourite place, Empire Seafood but the lineup was horrifying. So we turned to their sister restaurant Parklane right across the plaza.
We noticed the Mini Noodle Lunch Specials – all the noodle dishes on this menu were only $8.80. So we ordered their signature Chiu Chow Seafood Rice Noodles. It was quite a different noodle dish from any other ones that I had tasted. The noodles were only blanched and neatly packed in the middle of the place, and all other seafood and vegetable ingredients were not mixed in the noodles, but instead were just layered on top, finished with a clear seafood gravy sauce, making everything on the plate so glassy and pretty. Although the dish looked tramadol overnight cod very bland, the flavours were all there – all the seafood pieces were so fresh and naturally sweet, and tasted perfect with the savoury gravy sauce. It was quite a delightful dish!
We also ordered Shrimp Dumplings ($4.95) and Fried Taro Dumplings ($4.95), a couple of usual favourites. They were just as good as you could get anywhere in Richmond. We also tried a new dish, Shrimp Balls with King Oyster Mushroom ($5.25), but it was just not as impressive as I was hoping – I was totally expecting more mushroom pieces and smaller shrimp balls. 🙂
