NOURISHING SNOW PEAR LONGAN CHINESE SOUP REICPE 雪梨芡實桂圓排骨湯

NOURISHING SNOW PEAR LONGAN CHINESE SOUP REICPE 雪梨芡實桂圓排骨湯

As the weather gets colder and Autumn-Winter approaches it is very important to nourish ourselves from within. This snow pear longan sweet soup (雪梨芡實桂圓排骨湯) is suitable for all ages. It helps to nourish the lungs and reduces coughing, reduces fire, removes dampness and heals the spleen and kidney. Longan calms and soothe the nerves…

This soup is neutral and suitable for most people. While it carries a sweet taste that can pass for a dessert if you add more dates.

The soup colour has a light brown colour.

To speed up the cooking process I like using the InstantPot Duo . Instead of a 6 hours boil, cooking time can be reduced to 1.5 hours.

Grand Seasons Coquitlam | 四季 Chinese Restaurant

grand seasons coquitlam Nomss

四季 Grand Seasons Chinese Restaurant is a humble diner in Coquitlam. It is located just across from the Burquitlam SkyTrain station at 555 Clarke Road. Our friends introduced this place to us after we were complaining about eating at the same restaurants in Coquitlam Tri-Cities area. Everything was pretty promising on our first visit but then quickly declined from there on. We came here three times and probably will not go back.

Salt and Pepper Deep Fried Tofu: Crispy outside with jalapeno and garlic. Great with a side of congee.

Century Egg and Salty Pork Congee: A nice consistency of water to rice ratio in this congee. However, there was not a lot ingredients and I like Neptune Wonton’s pillowy congee base much, much more,

Stir Fry Beef Rice Noodles: A nice balance of flavour however this dish was to greasy and lacked heat from the wok.

Spicy Marinated Jelly Fish with Sliced Beef Shank: This was one of my favorite dishes. I had ordered it a few times. However, if I had to choice, I think East Pearl in Port Coquitlam does it better. Their jelly fish has a better mouth feel and bouncy texture compared to Grand Seasons which is a little soggy.

Overall, Grand Seasons is suitable for a quick bite to satisfy the hunger. They lack consistency in presentation and execution. Sometimes the fishes are still dirty with a greasy film – that alone is a deal breaker!

R&H Chinese Food is located in Lansdowne Centre’s Food Court. Unlike your typical fast food burgers, greasy spoons and teppanyaki, they offer some really delicious Chinese Shanghainese options! Their menu has a good variety of noodles, dumplings and other snacks great for sharing.

 

Steamed Soup Dumplings: In particular, I really enjoyed their Xiao Long Bao. Very juicy soup filling with a thin skin. The meat was not mushy and well flavored.

Beef Wrap: These beef wrap were also very flavorful. The beef itself was well marinated and melts in your mouth. The wrap was not too dense and has a nice warm crispiness.

 

I can’t wait to return again to try their pan fried soup dumpling and their spicy noodles. Who says you can’t find good eats in a food court?!
