Yuan’s Shanghai Serendipity Cuisine Richmond | 源

Yuan’s Shanghai Serendipity Cuisine Richmond | 源

The name only is a mouthful Yuan’s Shanghai Serendipity Cuisine Richmond 源. This Shanghai restaurant is located beside Deluxe Chinese Restaurant 凯悦酒家 next to Aberdeen Mall. We were told how delicious their pan fried soup dumplings were and decided we must go check it out.

 

The restaurant itself is bright and open with some resemblance to Old Shanghai (except the blue velvet chairs).Big open display windows so we can all watch the chefs in action.

 

Service is mediocre and could be friendlier. Sometimes, the servers won’t bother explaining a dish if you had a question and just walks away.

Steamed Soup Dumplings: Pretty standard Xiao Long Bao with a juicy but very forgettable soup base. The meat was borderline mushy.

 

Pan Fried Soup Dumplings: Again nothing special to rave about. The skin was thinner than some other restaurants but the center filling again was pretty standard if not bland. At this point we were pretty puzzled why we were told such amazing things about their Steamed/Pan Fried Soup Dumplings.

 

Spicy Mouth Watering Chicken: The name of the dish is a bit misleading. Normally this is one of my favorite dishes to order at a Shanghai restaurant. The begin, the chicken was very boney. Little meat was there. There were lots of broken bones so be very careful. The sauce was overwhemingly spicy with little balance between sweetness and spices.

 

Shanghai Wonton: Wonton chicken soup enough to share

 

Hot and Sour Soup: Overall the flavors of this soup was not bad however they’ve put in way too much corn starch. The soup itself was thick and gloopy and not very enjoyable.

 

Beef Wrap: Again, another disappointing execution of a fairly basic dish. The beef wrap was dry. The filling majority was sliced cucumber with very little beef. The beef that was there was quite dry and flavorless.

 

Overall, we were quite disappointed with our experience here at Yuan’s Shanghai Serendipity Cuisine and will not return. For the price point I would have expected more than mediocre. There are far better restaurants in Richmond than to visit Yuan’s.

Fairmont Waterfront | Spring Pea Toast at ARC Restaurant

Fairmont Waterfront | Spring Pea Toast at ARC Restaurant

MOVE OVER AVOCADOES AND GIVE PEAS A CHANCE!

Breakfast dish replaces avocadoes with local peas and becomes toast of the town at Fairmont Waterfront in Vancouver.

ARC Restaurant Fairmont Waterfront Nomss.com Delicious Food Photography Healthy Travel Lifestyle

Vancouverites are familiar with the debate of having avocado toast – or saving for a home with their rising prices. But guests have another more eco-friendly option– Spring Pea Toast which is featured on the breakfast menu at ARC, the restaurant at Fairmont Waterfront.

Executive Chef Karan Suri loves avocadoes but tries to limit their use at the zero-waste certified hotel. “Avocadoes might be green, but they’re not eco-friendly because of the massive amount of water they require to grow,” he says. “So, we’ve taken a local approach and created Spring Pea Toast with fresh peas, edamame beans, rooftop greens, and an organic poached egg on sourdough toast sprinkled with feta cheese.”

And peas are a powerhouse of goodness. They’re low fat and provide protein, fiber and nutrients, are high in anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatory agents, help anti-aging, boost the immune system and regulate blood sugar. Spring Pea Toast is on the menu through summer and can be enjoyed at breakfast Monday to Friday from 6 am through 10:30 am, and on weekends from 6:00 a.m. until 11:00 a.m. for $18.

Mission Hill Winery Estate located heart of British Columbia’s breathtaking Okanagan Valley wine country is must for anyone visiting Kelowna for the first time. This trip was one that I will always remember and hold dear to my heart. The breathtaking scenery provides a great place for you to take refuge from the busyness of daily life and escape for while with a delicious glass (or bottle, we don’t judge) of wine. We came here on our second day of our Summerland road trip. After travelling from Vancouver and pre-drinking before at Sumac Ridge Estate Winery, we didn’t want to leave this beautiful place. We made sure we made dinner reservations at the Mission Hill Terrace Restaurant for dinner later that evening.

Upon arriving you are greeted at the gate with beautiful grapes and a stunning view. Even on a cloudy day, the view is mesmerizing. We sat on the grass for a long while talking nonsense, life and just soaking up God’s creation.

After all the wine tasting and touring I was ready to spend my $5 voucher and indulge on flights. 3 for $10 or any single for $4. If you purchase two bottles from the selected list, you can enjoy one tasting also. I really enjoyed their 06 SLC Chard and their SLC Syrah.

It is VERY IMPORTANT to keep the cheese and crackers you purchase close to you. There are many guests whom thinks it is free and communal and start reaching into your purchased food. Most are probably already intoxicated from the wine tour and wine tasting where common sense and mannerism is throw out the door.

And after all that wine drinking you can join us at the Mission Hill Terrace Restaurant to indulge in some seafood and steak.
