A true HK brand name, from time to time when I am really craving for some HK style wonton noodles and other goodies, I will revisit and hope for the best!
Over the years, I am afraid to say the standard has gradually declined, I can see that the boss and a few staff is still the same but I am sure the few times that I have returned the cook at the noodle and congee stand had changed many times.
Beef Brisket & Tendon Rice Noodle in Soup $6.95 3/5
The beef was well prepared with the perfect tenderness as with the tendon, the rice noodles were a bit over cooked, but still retains silky smooth. I can understand it is really hard to compare to the real thing in Hong Kong but I am sure with better cooking time & technique, this will become a 5 easy!
Lo-mein with Stewed Pork Hock $9.50 3/5
Again, the Stewed Pork Hock was prepared really well, but the noodles were also over cooked and became soggy and sticks together.
Remember this is a Speciality Restaurant that prized itself for their noodles, I hope the boss will pay more attention to the production process and find good cooks for their noodles!
Supreme Wunton Noodles $6.95 3/5
This by far is the biggest disappointment, it like going to an Italian Restaurant and their Pasta is overcooked!!
The wonton itself is also not up to par, the wonton was wrapped like a dumpling (which is in a longer shape and not round like a wonton supposed to be). The soup base was good, but without the two main ingredients being prepared properly, this is not the same wonton noodles I have come to expect from this "pedigree" of wonton noodle house.
Mixed Seafood Congee (Sampan Congee) $8.15 2/5
Oh sorry, this is even worst then the Wonton Noodles I just mentioned.
Totally not the same thing as you would expect from "any" place that serves this dish, it was completely watery and with nothing inside except for a few squid tentacles!! Sorry this is nothing close to the real item!!
I really hope this "Brand" name restaurant can keep their standard and uphold the true Hong Kong Style Wonton Noodles, as there are none in Vancouver at present.
Final Score: 2.75 stars
Sad to say: Not Recommending!
